Attorney | Ciarra C. Adkins, JD

Ciarra C. Adkins is a licensed West Michigan attorney. She has a BA in Psychology and a Spanish Minor from Calvin College (now Calvin University). Ciarra attended WMU Cooley Law School where she concentrated in Intellectual Property Law and received the Certificate of Merit in Gaming Law (Casino Law). Ciarra embodies hard work and perseverance – she worked full-time throughout law school as a non-profit program manager. Ciarra is very passionate about equity, higher education, civic engagement/voting rights, and legal accessibility for low-income communities. The legal field has been a passion as far back as she can remember. In fact, as a child Ciarra never played dress up or house with dolls like most girls her age, instead Ciarra would line up her stuffed animals and hold court sessions where many naughty stuffed animals were sentenced to time outs!
