About Tamara

Learn Tamara’s areas of practice.

  In the fall of 2014, I'd have enough of being part of a firm where it seemed that dollars for the partners were all that mattered.  Well, dollars are needed of course but it is the client and service to the community that should always come first.  That's why I started my own practice. 

   While I have vast experience in many areas of the law, I now focus on estate planning and estate administration, small business formation, real estate, contract and equine law.  I also do guardianships and some small civil matters.

   You may sometimes see me referred to as Tamara Showalter as that was my name prior to changing it to my married name of Hogan.  Sorry for any confusion there!

  I hope you will give me a call to discuss your matter.  I think you will find my practice a refreshing change from the stuffy suit kind of practice!

Personable and knowledgeable with regard to wills
Tammy was a wonderful help for both my mother and I with regard to starting wills and living wills. She also recommended that my 18 year old son have a Power of Attorney document and was able to explain why this is so important. I've been able to pass this information on to my own clients.
