Aimee Hamoy Joins Kaufman Dolowich & Voluck as Litigation Partner in San Francisco Bay Area
(August 11, 2021, San Francisco, CA) — Kaufman Dolowich & Voluck LLP (KDV) today announced that Aimee Hamoy, a former deputy district attorney in Contra Costa County with extensive litigation experience over nearly two decades, including the defense of public entities, national retailers and hospitality businesses, has joined the firm as a litigation partner. She will be servicing clients in the San Francisco Bay Area from her Oakland home office.
Hamoy’s practice includes the defense of law enforcement officers in cases alleging violations of civil rights, excessive force and wrongful death claims. She secured a defense verdict on behalf of two City of Oakland police officers before The United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit who were alleged to have used excessive force. She also defends national retailers in serious personal injury and premises liability matters and landlord-tenant disputes.
“Aimee is an extraordinarily talented, passionate litigator and trial attorney representing public entity clients including cities, counties and educational institutions or national retailers and hospitality businesses,” said Ashley Klein, managing partner of KDV’s San Francisco office. “In addition to growing her own practice at KDV, her experience will benefit several KDV practice areas including real estate, labor & employment and general liability.”
“The national focus on social and racial justice and on policing in America puts a spotlight on my public entity defense work, so I am excited to join a firm that has so many talented trial attorneys and national resources to support my practice,” said Hamoy. “I know several KDV attorneys and was attracted to the firm because of the leadership roles of so many women who are practice group chairs, office managing partners or in other leadership positions at the firm.”
Hamoy earned her J.D. from Seton Hall University Law School and her B.A. from Loyola Marymount University. She is an active member of the Filipino Bar Association of Northern California (FBANC) and the Alameda County Bar Association (ACBA) Government Entity Section. She will be a member of KDV’s Women’s Initiative and Diversity & Inclusion Committee.
