We are pleased to announce the appointment of Carla DiMare to the Law Library Board of Trustees. Ms. DiMare has her own eponymous law practice and was chosen from a number of candidates by our Board of Trustees in February 2019. She replaces Nathan Low as an attorney representative on our Board.
Carla DiMare is an experienced civil trial attorney and trained mediator who has represented numerous high-profile clients. She is also a social justice lawyer who has handled disputes and cases for victims who did not have the financial resources to hire a lawyer. These cases have included personal injury, civil rights violations, and Title IX abuses in schools.
She has written for the Huffington Post, The Los Angeles Daily Journal, and frequently speaks to community groups. Recently, she gave a talk for the San Diego Law Library on the topic of free speech at the San Marcos Branch of the San Diego County Public Library.
Pro bono work is a significant part of Ms. DiMare’s life. In addition to being a Trustee for the Law Library, she also is a CASA, a court appointed special advocate for abused and neglected children with Voices for Children, the President of the Board of Directors for the Rancho Santa Fe Senior Center, and a member of the Board of Directors for the Graves’ Disease and Thyroid Foundation.
Our newest attorney trustee began her service on March 26, 2019. She will be serving along side Judge David Berry, Judge Joseph Brannigan, Judge Truc Do, Judge David Gill, and Judge Julia Kelety of the San Diego Superior Court as well as San Diego City Attorney Mara Elliott and attorneys Jeff Cawdrey and Lorena Slomanson. We thank them all for their great service to the Law Library and to the people of our county.
