SANTA BARBARA, California – Trusted Legal, a boutique law firm specializing in business, litigation and employment law, is pleased to welcome two new attorneys to its growing team.

Nicole Hornick and Elke Kane joined Trusted Legal earlier this year, and will be assisting clients with litigation and transactional matters respectively. Both are long-time Santa Barbara County residents who excel in their chosen legal fields.

Born and raised in the Santa Ynez Valley, Hornick is a recent graduate of the Santa Barbara Colleges of Law and is a second-generation trial attorney. During law school she earned two Witkin Awards for legal writing and was published in Santa Barbara Lawyer Magazine.
Hornick is experienced in civil litigation in both defense and plaintiff work.

A graduate of Santa Ynez High School, Hornick is also passionate about elder abuse law. She lives in Buelton with her husband, who is also an attorney. When not busy practicing law, she enjoys yoga, running, and gardening.

Kane is a California provisionally licensed attorney who has considered Santa Barbara home for over 20 years. She enjoys helping clients with a wide range of business needs, including contract negotiations, corporate organization, non-profit filings, code compliance, and bankruptcy. Prior to attending law school, Kane owned and operated a successful wedding cake business and bakery, which gave her an intimate understanding of the excitement and challenges of running a business.

A recent graduate with honors from the Santa Barbara Colleges of Law, Kane is looking forward to sitting for the California Bar in February. Prior to joining Trusted Legal, Kane worked as an intern for the Environmental and Consumer Protection Division of the Santa Barbara District Attorney’s office. She is also fluent in Spanish and has volunteered her time translating and assisting community members with bankruptcy claims.

When not hard at work for clients, Kane can be found travelling, cycling, or spending time poolside with her husband, two young daughters, and their dogs.

With offices in Santa Barbara and Santa Ynez, Trusted Legal provides a full range of personalized legal services and guidance to businesses, non-profits and government organizations. Services include business formation, contracts, human resources compliance, mediation and arbitration, strategic planning, and special projects.
