Dan Stroski is gathering oral auction items for the auction. Just say 'yes' when Dan contacts you. Dan was also happy that he will be seeing his grandkids in Chicago on March 1.

Chuck Maltese took the lead on Recognition today. With Chuck's question, Daniel Jones learned that if you are running in a race and overtake the person in 2nd place, you are now in 2nd place - not first!.

Meet our Newest Member -

Wendy Casas-Raviotta

 

 

 

Wendy Casas-Raviotta was inducted as a new Club member on November 12, 2019. Wendy, who was sponsored by Mark Ullrich, provided us with the following bio at our request. Please take a moment soon to welcome Wendy to the Club.

 

Wendy is a native Woodland resident.  She graduated from Woodland High School in 1996.  After graduating high school, she followed in her older sister’s footsteps by attending  UC Davis where she majored in History and Spanish.  During her third year of college, Wendy studied abroad in Mexico City.  She also interned in Washington DC her last year of college.  She graduated UC Davis in 2000 and enrolled at UC Davis School of Law King Hall the following year.  While in law school, she interned at the Yolo County Public Defender’s Office where she developed an interest in criminal defense work.  Wendy graduated law school in 2004 and passed the bar that same year.  She began her legal career as a deputy public defender in Kern County.  After a couple of years, she moved back to Northern California where she accepted a position with the Solano County Public Defender’s Office and worked as a defense attorney for over ten years. In May 2018, Wendy opened her solo practice in Woodland where she continues to focus on criminal defense and family law matters.   Wendy is married to Joseph Raviotta, who is a tower crane operator in San Francisco. They’ve been married for ten years and have two children, Max who is in fourth grade and Maya who is in second grade. 

 

Wendy is fluent in Spanish.  She is an active board member on the La Raza Lawyers Association of Solano County.
