Past Client
Travis Akin is a very honest, fair, and the utmost professional attorney. He gets the job done in a reasonable time and puts his all into ever case. I couldn't have asked for better advice.

Great Attorney
Mr. Akin represented us in our Foreclosure dispute. He found a technicality in the first Foreclosure Mediation, and got the case delayed. Overall, we got to stay in the house without making a mortgage payment for over three years. Three years of free mortgage payments equaled over ten times the amount we paid Mr. Akin to represent us. Great value! I would recommend Mr. Akin to anyone for any legal issue.
