Jennifer S. Akin is the Founder and Managing Attorney at J. Akin Law. She has 8 years of experience in law practice. Over the years, she has chosen to focus her practice entirely on helping clients with their Elder Law, Estate and Special Needs Planning. She is a member of the New York (2012) and Florida (2013) bars.
A leader in spirit and action, Jennifer takes on the toughest cases of the firm’s senior and special needs clients and dispenses advice and action plans that protect her clients’ interests in line with the state and federal laws. She herself and her associates in the firm help clients with Medicaid Planning, Veterans Planning, Estate Planning, Special Needs Planning, Guardianship, and Probate cases.
Jennifer believes helping elderly people is her calling. Prior to attending law school, Jennifer was a certified nursing aide at a nursing home in Ormond Beach, FL. Through her time as a CNA she worked closely with her clients (patients) to make sure they were provided quality care while still maintaining their dignity and quality of life. Jennifer truly loved this role and her time with these seniors. It was during this time that Jennifer saw the devastating effects long term care could have on families’ finances, emotions, and wellbeing. Therefore, planning for long term care has become such an important part of her practice. Jennifer’s passion is to work with seniors and their loved ones by providing them the information to make important decisions about different types of long-term care.
Jennifer believes in a collaborative approach to helping her clients. This means that her assistance does not end with just legal help. She works closely with other senior providers to make sure all their needs are taken care from start to finish. This is extremely important to Jennifer, as she knows navigating the world of estate planning, Veterans Planning, Medicaid planning and long-term care can be extremely confusing, frustrating, and exhausting to the point that families do not even know where to start. Jennifer’s mission is to make sure every family feels that they have been taken care of, have peace of mind and have someone to lean on during these difficult times.
In addition, Jennifer also spends time dedicating part of her practice to that of helping families plan for their special needs child’s future. This is something very personal to her as she herself is a mother to a special needs child and knows all too well what it is like to not know where to start and where to find information.
When Jennifer is not busy at the office, she spends quality time with her husband, Barry, and three kids, Alex, Bear, and Isla. She loves yoga, running, and travelling with her family.
