Detailed assessment and personal service down to the details

Dain C. Akin

Dain C. Akin relocated from Westerville, Ohio to DeLand in 2017 and joined his wife Sherri Akin as a member of Akin Law P.A. Dain graduated from Miami University (Ohio) in 1974 and Ohio Northern
University Pettit College of Law in 1978, and received his Master of Laws in Taxation (LLM Tax) from The University of Florida in 1990. He is admitted to practice law in Ohio (1978) and Florida (1991), and is
also admitted to practice before various federal courts, including the United States Tax Court.

Dain brings to DeLand his extensive expertise of representing public and private companies, high net-worth individuals, and non-profit organizations as a CPA with the Cleveland, Ohio office of Ernst & Whinney (now E & Y), in-house General Counsel, and as a private practice attorney.
In these capacities, he advised clients regarding federal, multi-state and local income tax return preparation and planning, business gift and succession planning, and tax controversy strategy (income, sales, use, gift, estate tax).

He also served as general counsel to a GMAC subsidiary, where his expertise focused on partnership tax, syndication of multi-family housing communities, low-income housing tax credit qualification, and multi-tier financing.

At Akin Law, Dain applies these many experiences to represent individual and business clients in the
areas of business formation, business asset purchases and sales, income tax planning and controversy work, real estate development, small business litigation, low-income housing tax credit qualification and compliance, estate planning, and probate.

What our clients think of us

I live in the state of Pennsylvania and my father recently passed away. As Executrix and beneficiary of my father's estate I wasn't sure how it would play out from a remote location. I searched for Ohio based lawyers and she was one of the first to pop up. After carefully reading the wonderful reviews online, I felt confident she was the one. I was right. She has managed to explain step by step in the greatest detail the process of settling a deceased loved one's property. She is very kind and honest and has provided unbelievable guidance thru the whole process. I would recommend her in a heartbeat. Thanks again Sherrille!

In my particular case, I'd contacted Sherrille in what I deemed to have been the 11th hour. There were more than a few complications. When I first contacted her, she didn't make any promises other than to do her best. She immersed herself in the case, adroitly using her expert knowledge, and brought the case to a successful conclusion. Sherrille is compassionate and she is a great listener. She guided me through this difficult time and at no point did I lose confidence.
