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.

Hilary Coy
Legal Assistant

Hilary joined our team in November 2018 following her graduation from California State University, Sacramento. She previously interned for the Sacramento Area Council of Governments in the communications department until graduation. Shortly after graduation she reached out to Attorney Gardner, her former professor, about pursuing a Law Degree and it turned into a job opportunity as Legal Assistant for the firm. When she is not at the office, Hilary is likely playing volleyball or going on adventures with her friends.
