Homze is Counsel in the San Diego office where she defends clients in business litigation and professional liability matters, with a specific emphasis on the counseling and representation of attorneys and law firms.

She has extensive experience guiding clients through all stages of litigation, continuously advocating on their behalf before judges, juries, arbitrators, mediators, and opposing counsel.

Outside the litigation sphere, Ms. Homze crafts strategies for clients to reduce or eliminate the risk of litigation through creative and proactive solutions, even in highly-contentious situations. Through careful attention to her clients’ needs and a passion for the practice of law, Ms. Homze consistently achieves results for her clients in complex litigated and non-litigated matters.

Ms. Homze is active in the community as a member of San Diego Defense Lawyers and ABTL, the Association for Business Trial Lawyers.
