Are you an attorney? Endorse this lawyer

  • Jerry Bruce Harkness Sr.

    I highly endorse this lawyer. Nina is one of the smartest lawyers that I have ever met. She is amazing at legal research and keeping up with the latest laws to help her clients. She is hard working and dedicated to helping her clients. I often refer Family Law cases to her and she has always taken very good care of any client that I referred to her. She is one of the best lawyers that I know.

  • Charles T. Magarahan

    Nina is a smooth talker. She can disarm prosecutors with her soft spoken manner, and before they know it she's made her point to the jury. She is a qualified litigator, and is not afraid of the courtroom. Her skills as a researcher are excellent, and her appellate work is well respected among the bar. Nina is well known in north eastern Georgia, and can call upon her relationships with prosecutors and judges to get the job done. She has earned my respect and admiration,and I am happy that I can call her my friend.
