Dewey has served on the board of the County Bar for a number of years, and has been on the Executive Committee since 2010.

Dewey is a principal at Buynak, Fauver, Archbald & Spray specializing in general counsel and litigation services for private clients, foundations, nonprofits and small-business owners with a focus on employment law, construction and real estate.

Super Lawyer Magazine honored her as Rising Star for 2013 and 2014. With this designation, Dewey is recognized of one of the top 2.5 percent of lawyers in California. Super Lawyer Magazine evaluates outstanding attorneys from more than 70 practice areas who have attained a high degree of professional achievement.

“The Santa Barbara County Bar is recognized as one of the strongest in California,” Dewey said. “Our membership grows each year, and we are very fortunate to serve such a diverse legal population.

“In addition to representing attorneys throughout the county, we serve as a liaison between elected officials, judges and lawyers on key issues such as court funding and access to justice. This year, the Santa Barbara County Bar Association was able to support Legal Aid with a $20,000 donation to fund programs for low income residents who might not otherwise be able to afford legal help.”

Dewey has been active with many local and regional organizations, including the National Association of Business Owners, California Women Lawyers and Santa Barbara Women Lawyers.

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.
