Nancy Uko



Since being forced to handle her own divorce while studying for the bar exam,  Nancy developed a passion for helping others navigate through the effects of a failed relationship, especially when children are involved. She knows first-hand the struggles of a messy divorce and now wishes to alleviate the intensity of that process from the shoulders of as many people as possible. Her favorite part of family law is being able to be her client’s rock during such a traumatic time in their lives and being able to see the effects of a favorable outcome for them. Nancy’s professional superpower is empathy. She tries her best to put herself in her client’s shoes, which makes her more compassionate to their positions. She loving being able to be the encouragement that her clients may need in order to know that everything will be ok and they will eventually find happiness again.

Journey to Family Law

Nancy recently made the decision leave her position as a government attorney. For the past five years, she had been going through the motions of an Attorney Advisor with the intent of becoming an Administrative Law Judge. But what her personal growth allowed her to see is that it is okay to step outside of her comfort zone in order to challenge herself. She knows that she is capable of so much more, so why settle on a career path that stifles her ability to be innovative and to use the skills that she knows she has just for the sake of money or a sense of security? Why spend her youth on a career path that does not even grant her the pleasure of seeing the effects and the outcome of her work? She now realizes that her personal growth allowed her to make the most out of her life, because if she doesn’t, nobody else will.

Favorite Types of Cases

Nancy enjoys working on divorce cases that contain child custody issues. She feels a great deal of satisfaction when she’s able to help the court determine what is in the best interest of the child, while also serving her client at the same time.
