    Attorney Akintoye received her bachelor’s degree from The Pennsylvania State University and went on to attend law school at the University of Pittsburgh School of Law where she obtained her Juris Doctor degree. While attending the University of Pittsburgh, she also completed the necessary coursework to obtain her litigation certificate from the university.

    Attorney Akintoye’s experience is widespread. She has worked for a general practice firm handling both civil and criminal matters, and has also worked with various public interest organizations due to her longstanding dedication to giving back to the community.

    Before opening her law firm, attorney Akintoye also worked for several years as a public defender. During attorney Akintoye’s tenure as a public defender, she maintained an extensive caseload representing hundreds of individuals in jury trial and bench trial matters, and thousands in preliminary hearings. Through her experiences she has developed advanced skills in courtroom litigation, which she embraces when representing her clients in court.

    Attorney Akintoye is dedicated to fighting for justice, whether it be a criminal defense matter, DUI, or personal injury matter. She takes a diligent approach to every client matter, and strives to obtain the best possible resolution in every case.

    Domestic Violence

    Being involved in a domestic violence case can cause extreme anxiety.  There are usually other related issues that often give rise to domestic violence matters such as custody disputes, a divorce, or even a bad break-up.  An ongoing strained relationship with a friend or family member can also open the door to a domestic violence occurrence.  If you have been charged in a domestic violence case in DC, we are here to help.

     

    We also handle civil Protection orders (CPO) in DC for both petitioners and respondents.  It’s never a good idea to show up to a CPO trial without a lawyer.  If your opponent has a lawyer, so should you!  Even if your opponent does not have a lawyer, you have a greater advantage over your opponent when you are represented by counsel.

    Civil protection orders cover three broad categories of individuals:

    1. Intimate Partner Violence- people who are currently or previously married, in a domestic partnership, or in a romantic, dating or sexual relationship;
    2. Intrafamily Violence- people who are related by blood, adoption, legal custody, marriage; domestic partnership, or people who share a child;
    3. Interpersonal Violence- people who share a mutual residence, or people who are presently and previously married, in a domestic partnership, separated, divorced, or presently and previously in a romantic, dating or sexual relationship.

    To initiate a CPO there has to be an allegation that a crime was committed or threatened to be committed by an individual falling within one of these three categories.  If a CPO is entered against you, it can have serious consequences on various areas of your life including immigration consequences and child custody issues.  If you were served with a temporary protection order or if you are the petitioner seeking a protection order, contact us to ensure that you get the best possible outcome.

    Attorney Akintoye is a fantastic and highly knowledgeable attorney. I’ve never met an attorney who actually listens... like she does! I reached out to her for a sensitive legal issue. Not only did she give me a solution, but she provided me with the much-needed relief that I needed. She is very respectful to her clients and truly listens when you speak to her. If you have a legal issue in DC, she is the attorney to contact. I highly recommend her, hands down!read more
