About Akins

I am a patent attorney whose practice concentrates on intellectual property law, including patents, trademarks, and copyrights. I also practice general civil litigation and, on some occasions, take criminal law cases pro bono or at a substantially reduced rate when the client is indigent. I predominantly draft patent applications and help secure patents for inventors.

When I was in law school, I competed on the moot court team and participated in several moot court tournaments, one of which I was a finalist. These experiences improved my legal writing skills.

I am on this site because I have a passion for teaching, having tutored several classmates during law school. I have also been told that I have a gift of communicating complicated concepts in a simple way. I hope to meet with my students and make learning fun for them. Most importantly, I hope to simplify complicated concepts in a way that is both engaging and fun for the student.

I hope to one day make a career in teaching, and I hope this experience will jump start the process. When I am not working, I am busy attending art shows and practicing my stand-up routine, as I am a budding stand-up comedian. I hope to make you laugh and teach you at the same time.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Law

I was admitted to the State Bar of Georgia and admitted to practice before the United States Patent & Trademark Office. I was also a participant in the 2011 Jerome Prince Evidence Moot Court Competition and a Finalist in the 2009 Ben J. Altheimer Moot Court Tournament.
