Meet Attorney Shaw

Originally from Upstate New York, Tara decided to call San Diego home after graduating from the University of San Diego.  After working in property management for 9 years, her love for a good courtroom drama and Forensic Files took her back to school, this time to Thomas Jefferson School of Law. 


After working with her mentors in estate planning, Tara decided this was the perfect area for her to assist clients with something that most see as an overwhelming task, by making it into a straightforward, simple and even enjoyable experience!


In her free time Tara enjoys spending time with her husband biking on the boardwalk, walking her dogs at Fiesta Island, and watching the elephants at the San Diego Zoo.
