Meet Nicole D. Adkison

Instead of joining an established law firm out of law school, I started Adkison Law with the intent of offering legal services to an underserved middle market while maintaining the flexibility to take the cases and do the work I choose.


As a small business owner for many years prior to law school, I have a passion for small businesses and the unique challenges they face. I chose to center my law practice around that love of small business and naturally expanded my practice to estate and business succession planning.



My passion for small businesses led me to complete an additional graduate degree in Taxation. One of the biggest challenges facing small businesses and their owners are the ever-changing and ever-frustrating tax laws. The Internal Revenue Code is complex and difficult to understand and my hope is to be able to provide my clients with extra peace of mind when planning for the future.


Outside of my office, I love cooking and entertaining and I am currently trying to learn French. I'm currently the VP of Social for my Toastmasters club, Golden Gate Toastmasters, in San Francisco.
