Hilda Akopyan, Esq., an associate of the firm, is a graduate of Chapman University School of Law (2015). While in law school, Hilda focused her studies on trial practice, alternative dispute resolution, and public interest. Hilda participated in Chapman’s mediation clinic, where she mediated over 75 cases including, but not limited to, restraining orders, civil cases, debt collections, and unlawful detainees.
Hilda’s passion lays with helping people, specifically those who are unrepresented and need it the most. In law school, Hilda volunteered at the Legal Aid of Orange County; there, she provided legal advice and assistance with dissolution of marriage to those who could not afford legal services. Additionally, Hilda spent time working at Chapman’s Alona Cortese Elder Law Clinic. There, she helped families and individuals with aging parents, or special needs children, file for conservatorships. Further, she drafted wills for low-income residents of Orange County.
Using the experiences she gained from working in public interest, Hilda joined the compassionate and hardworking legal team at D&Z Law Group in the summer of 2016. Hilda is dedicated to providing every client with a sense of comfort and confidence while their case is being handled. It is her goal to not only get the best results for her clients, but to make sure clients get the best experience from what is usually a tumultuous process.
