30-year real estate veteran Tom Ward brings an extensive and varied background to Hanson Law Firm. Beginning as a residential real estate salesperson in 1976, then a real estate attorney for firms in Sacramento and Alameda, he opened his own practice in the mid-1980s.
Over the years Tom handled a variety of real estate transactional and litigation matters; always available “on-call” to provide business and legal advice to small real estate investors and brokers with immediate, pressing questions and issues. He also served as a broker, supervising multiple salespeople.
In 1998 Tom took a position as corporate in-house counsel for a major national 1031 exchange intermediary company. Since 2004, he has returned to general real estate law practice.
