Bethany Nikitenko loves practicing law for many reasons, but it is her inherent compassion for people that made this profession her natural calling. Her specialties—suits involving medical malpractice, catastrophic automobile accidents, and sexual abuse—are also the areas of law that she finds most meaningful and satisfying, because they involve righting particularly tragic wrongs that have befallen innocent people of all walks of life. Clients appreciate her warmth and willingness to listen, ready accessibility and personalized attention as she advocates for them while helping them navigate through unfamiliar legal territory. She was named a Lawyer on the Fast Track in 2017 by The Legal Intelligencer.
