Nancy Uko, Esq.

Attorney At Law


Without Choosing Nancy...

your case will be missing a confident, polished and prepared. She’s so quick on her feet and adaptable that nothing catches her off guard. She knows the law and fights hard for her clients. She knows this is very personal.
I grew up in San Diego, California and am the middle child of seven. I attended Twin Oaks High School where I graduated with honors and then moved to Arizona in 2007 with a full scholarship to attend Arizona State University. I have been practicing family law for 5 years.
Since having to handle my own divorce while studying for the bar exam, I developed a passion for helping others navigate through the effects of a failed relationship, especially when children are involved. I know firsthand the struggles of a messy divorce and now wish to alleviate the intensity of that process from the shoulders of as many people as possible.

                                                            Love for Family Law

My favorite part of family law is being able to be my client’s rock during such a traumatic time in their lives and being able to see the effects of a favor outcome for them. My superpower is my empathy. I try to put myself in my client’s shoes, which makes me more compassionate to their positions.

I loving being able to be the encouragement that my clients may need in order to know that everything will be ok and they will eventually find happiness again.


FAvorite types of Cases

I enjoy working on divorce case that contain child custody issues. I feel a great deal of satisfaction when I am able to help the court determine what is in the best interest of the child, while also serving my client at the same time.

                                                             WHY MODERN LAW?

I recently made the decision leave my position as a government attorney. For the past five years, I had been going through the motions of an Attorney Advisor with the intent of becoming an Administrative Law Judge. But what my personal growth allowed me to see is that it is okay to step outside of my comfort zone in order to challenge myself.

I am capable of so much more, so why should I settle on a career path that stifles my ability to be innovative and to use the skills that I know I have just for the sake of money or a sense of security? Why spend my youth on a career path that does not even grant me the pleasure of seeing the effects and the outcome of my work? My personal growth allowed me to realize that if I don’t make the most out of this life, then who will?
