Nicole Liotine
Chief Financial Officer

Juggling many activities at the firm, Nicole prides herself on being a great advocate of HMS's clients and employees since starting with us in July 2015. Nicole is passionate about the arts and volunteers as an Art Docent at her son's elementary school demonstrating that an appreciation for fine arts can start at any age. If you don't find her in the office Nicole's likely enjoying time at the Happiest Place on Earth, Disneyland, where she delights in feeling like a kid again.

Margaret Evangelista

Margaret joined our group in May 2018.  After being a stay-at-home mom for many years, she attended MTI College to become a paralegal. Rebecca and Margaret worked together at another law firm and now continue the bond at HMS. When not at the office, you can find Margaret on the back of her husband's Harley Davidson exploring country roads and new restaurants. Her number one delight is her family. Camping is a family affair and they enjoy an annual family camping trip to Lake Siskiyou. It's always an adventure with all the kids and dogs.    

Ryan Hickey
File Clerk

Ryan joined our team in February 2020. As a previous student of Rebecca's, Ryan saw an opportunity to work with her at the firm and decided it would be an interesting position. Currently, he is studying Communications at California State University of Sacramento. He also previously worked part-time for his Chinese professor at Sacramento State as a Research Assistant. Because of his proficiency demonstrated in his Chinese class, he was hand-picked as a research assistant. In his free time, Ryan enjoys creating music, playing board games and video games with friends, and studying up Chinese and Chess.
