About me

     Find out more about me at


    Personally and professionally, my policy is the same.  Attain goals simply and efficiently.  Be practical.  Stay organized. Pay close attention to detail.  Retain integrity and honesty.  Acknowledge appropriate compromise.  These policies foster success and good relations with clients and opposing counsel alike.
     My husband and fellow Loyola Law alum, Thomas M. Ware II, specializes in HOA law.  Gifted with two teen children, we have long been tailgaters and fans of USC Trojan football, and since 2010, heartfelt supporters of the Palisade H.S. Dolphins.
