Welcome to The Law Office of Ilana Tanner!

Growing up, Ilana always knew she would one day become a lawyer. Her mother and father are both attorneys and are both excellent examples of conscientious and dedicated lawyers. And though the relationship she has with her parents and younger brother is very close-knit, she decided to move to Austin in 2005 to attend the University of Texas. Ilana majored in Communication Studies and Government, while also managing to attend every home UT football game.

Ilana fell in love with Austin and decided to stay here for law school. While attending the University of Texas School of Law, Ilana completed internships at the City of Austin Law Department, the Travis County Attorney’s Office, the Travis District Attorney’s Office, and the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals. She also worked for multiple family attorneys and developed a strong interest in family law. Ilana completed two semesters of the Children’s Rights Clinic in Law School, where she represented children as an attorney ad litem in cases where the state was seeking termination of parental rights.

In her spare time, Ilana enjoys playing with her 120 pound Great Pyrenees Mix, Crockett, and going to the dog park and farmers’ markets. She enjoys trying new restaurants in town, and is an avid reader. On Sundays in the fall, you can always find Ilana cheering on the Houston Texans.
