“We are dedicated to serving the Maine community legal with services tailored to meet the unique needs of individuals and businesses alike,” she said. “From family, estate planning, probate, civil, and business law, our experienced team provides comprehensive legal solutions with excellence and compassion.”

The law firm specializes in five areas of practice including: (1) Family law which encompasses a wide range of legal matters, such as divorce, paternity, parental rights, child support, protection from abuse and harassment, post-judgement modification, enforcement, contempt, and DHHS involvement; (2) Probate law, which covers a range of legal matters, including estate administration, estate litigation, minor and adult guardianships and conservatorships, adoptions, termination of parental rights, and minor and adult name changes; (3) Estate Planning comprising of wills, powers of attorney, healthcare directives, transfer on death deeds, trust modification, and deeds; (4) Civil law providing support for issues such as landlord-tenant disputes and small claims matters; and (5) Business law with limited assistance for businesses, including corporation and LLC formation services to ensure compliance with state laws, as well as Registered Agent services to help businesses remain in good standing with the state.

“The Firm believes in building strong relationships with our clients, based on mutual trust and respect.

We understand that legal issues can be overwhelming, which is why we are dedicated to providing our clients with legal services that are tailored to individual needs. Our experienced team works diligently to navigate the legal system with the utmost integrity and professionalism, ensuring that our clients' rights and interests are protected. At our Firm, we take the time to listen to our clients and gain a thorough understanding of their legal needs and objectives, enabling us to craft tailored solutions that meet their specific goals.”

St. Pierre said that the best thing about her practice is that she’s able to connect with people in the local community on both an interpersonal level and a business level, which helps her gain a better understanding about what’s going on in the community.

“We take the time to listen to our clients and gain a thorough understanding of their legal needs and objectives, enabling us to craft tailored solutions that meet their specific goals,” she said. “We focus on informal settlement discussions, mediations, and other alternative dispute resolution avenues to make settlement a priority, rather than extensive litigation that is both time-consuming and costly. However, we are ready to litigate when required.”

St. Pierre graduated from the Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law at Arizona State University in Phoenix, Arizona in 2019. During law school, Hannah clerked for the Arizona Court of Appeals, Division I, Chambers of the Honorable Jon W. Thompson and was a legal extern for two semesters at the Arizona Supreme Court Staff Attorney's Office. During her final year of law school, she was a law clerk with the Stanford Law Office in Scottsdale, Arizona, which focused on family law and probate matters. She was a moot court competitor, was a recipient of ASU's highest pro bono distinction award and received CALI awards for the top Grade Point Average in the subjects of criminal law, legal writing, civil procedure, and torts.

She has significant experience in family matters involving divorce, parental rights and responsibilities, grandparents’ rights, child support, minor and adult guardianships, adoptions, and termination of parental rights. Hannah has additional experience in the areas of estate planning, estate administration, and estate litigation. Prior to law school, from 2014 to 2016, Hannah was a family law paralegal for a busy litigation firm in Phoenix, Arizona focusing on high-asset divorce, custody, spousal support, grandparents' rights, and adoption. She also served as a case manager for the Androscoggin County Family Treatment Drug Court in Lewiston from 2012 to 2014 where she worked closely with Judge John B. Beliveau, treatment providers, DHHS, and parents' attorneys to assist in achieving a positive outcome for parents struggling with substance abuse disorders.

Following graduation from ASU Law, St. Pierre passed the bar in Nevada and practiced in worker's compensation, family law, and probate administration in Carson City, Nevada. She’s since returned to her home state of Maine, and joined the Law Office of Todd H. Crawford, Jr., P.A. from 2020 to 2023. Her law office is in the A-Frame Building across the street from the Good Life Market on Route 302 in Raymond.
