Elizabeth Hahn grew up in Louisville, Kentucky. After graduating cum laude from Bellarmine University, she received her Juris Doctor from the University of Louisville Law School. Before coming to Peterson White, Elizabeth worked in both plaintiff’s civil litigation and workers’ compensation defense. She has advocated on behalf of small and large employers and focused much of her practice on automobile and industrial manufacturing defense.
Some of Elizabeth’s proudest accomplishments include arguing cases in front of Administrative Law Judges, the Kentucky Workers’ Compensation Board, the Kentucky Court of Appeals, and the Supreme Court of Kentucky.
Elizabeth has also dismissed several cases for Kentucky employers involved in workers’ comp litigation and helped draft legislation that modified the Kentucky Workers’ Compensation Act in favor of employer rights. Still, Elizabeth values every deposition, BRC, hearing, and appeal she gets to handle, and she is prepared to zealously represent employer interests during each stage of the litigation process.
Client communication is the key to Elizabeth’s practice, and she is always willing to discuss and evaluate the status of any case.
When she is not working or fulfilling her professional duties as a member of the Kentucky Bar Association, Elizabeth enjoys being outdoors, swimming, reading, learning new recipes and crafts, attending sporting events, and spending time with her husband and their 3 beloved children.
