Nicki Akin

Senior Attorney

I have a passion for navigating clients through the divorce process. I work closely with each one to identify his or her short and long-term personal and financial goals and devise strategies for accomplishing those goals. In addition to family law, I also have a background in complex civil litigation, which has provided me with a unique perspective and creative problem-solving approach in my divorce litigation cases.
