Attorney Profile

Tanya L. Akins, J.D., MSW is a founding shareholder and Vice President/Chief Financial Officer of Sherr Puttmann Akins Lamb PC. Tanya's passion has always been family law. She was previously a Senior Associate at Gutterman Griffiths PC in Colorado and an Associate Attorney at Beermann Swerdlove LLP in Chicago, Illinois.  Tanya continues to be licensed in Illinois.  Before her law career, Tanya was a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, which brings a unique perspective to her work as an experienced family law practitioner given that complex emotions play a role in most, if not all, family law cases. Tanya focuses her practice on dissolution and parental responsibilities cases including many that are high-conflict. Tanya does appellate work which she has successfully defended against and won appellate cases. Her expertise with managing all financial aspects of the firm provides a broad view of the complex world of family law and she manages high asset divorce cases in the multi-millions.  Tanya is able to settle cases amicably when possible for her clients but is a competent litigator when necessary in the courtroom.  Tanya also does Guardian Ad Litem work, including taking on pro bono cases, representing parties in dissolution cases that have been determined to be incompetent.  Tanya has been appointed as a Parent Coordinator/Decision Maker in order to assist clients in creating a harmonious co-parenting relationship in the best interst of their children. Tanya's social work background lends itself to this rewarding work.  Tanya enjoys working with clients that are unable to afford legal services, as she is very committed to her work with Metro Volunteer Lawyers.  Tanya has served on the Board of Directors since 2017.  Tanya wrote an article in support of volunteer work which was published in the The Docket in the June/July 2019 publication called "Five Reasons for You to Take a Pro Bono Case".
