“It’s every lawyer’s dream to help shape the law, not just react to it.” – Alan Dershowitz
Civil Litigation Attorney Alicia Reinken doesn’t want to merely practice the law. She wants to influence it.
“I understood the importance of the law but was also aware of the need to constantly improve the law and make new laws,” Alicia said of her decision to pursue a law degree.
“Being a lawyer gives me the chance to argue for the enforcement of laws, necessary changes in existing laws, and the development of new law.”
As a civil litigation attorney, Alicia has had plenty of opportunities to “shape the law.” She has worked on cases involving real estate, contract disputes, business transactions, and the interpretation of administrative laws. Alicia has represented both plaintiffs and defendants in numerous forums, including state and federal court, mediations, arbitrations, settlement conferences, and administrative hearings. These experiences have taught her how to best advocate for a client’s position depending on the forum.
Civil litigation can be an overwhelming and scary process. Fortunately, clients can expect total collaboration from Alicia. She takes care to explain each step of the case so that her clients fully understand what is happening and what to expect as the case progresses. Alicia provides her clients with all available options, outlining the pros and cons of each one.
“It is important to me that every one of my clients feels comfortable with the process and with each decision they make,” Alicia said. “I collaborate with my clients to ensure that we prepare the case in the most thorough and efficient manner.”
When not in the courtroom, Alicia can be found in the kitchen. She loves cooking and tries one new recipe a week from her large cookbook collection. Alicia and her husband Will, also an attorney, have one son, Graham, and a goldendoodle named Judge.
“My husband and I are in the process of building a home so we contacted Robinson & Henry to review our Builder’s contract prior to signing…Our contract was reviewed by both Joe Novak and Alicia Reinken. Alicia is equally as professional and thoughtful as Joe. It was clearly apparent that she was familiar with every detail of our contract when we met with her to review it. Joe and Alicia suggested several changes, almost all of which our builder agreed to. Our builder and his lawyer commented that they had never had such a thorough review of their contract before. Thank you Joe and Alicia for having our back and putting our minds at ease as we move forth with this grand venture.” —Meera
