About Jessica

Learn Jessica’s areas of practice.

     I am a Georgia native, and attended Collins Hill and Rabun County High Schools. After graduating High School, I attended Piedmont College and earned a Bachelor’s degree in History. I started my career in law as a Personal Injury Paralegal.  I worked myself up to the position of a Supervising Senior Paralegal where I remained for six years.                 

     Always wanting to do more, I decided to become a lawyer, and was accepted into law school.  During my first year of law school, I worked at the Rabun County District Attorney’s Office and during my second and third year, I worked with The Ryczek Firm, one of the best traffic ticket lawyers in Gwinnett County and in Georgia.  I was also a Pro Bono Student Ambassador for my school, and I received a 2016 Pro Bono Student Ambassador Award for my significant contributions of promoting our Pro Bono program within the student body and the legal community.  I graduated in the Top Twenty Percent of my class, earning a Cum Laude distinction. I also graduated with Pro Bono Honors for giving more than 100 Pro Bono hours to those in legal need.                                          

     Outside of work, I enjoy being with my husband, our three children, spending time with our families, and being active in our church community. My family and I also like to hike the mountain trails, kayak the beautiful rivers, spend time with our dog, and watch college football. We are also avid Braves and Falcons fans!!

So impressed. Stop your search for your lawyer, because you found her.
Ms. Oates, is absolutely amazing. She communicated the whole time and got my case thrown out. Wow. So thankful for you Nikki! Thank you!!!

"I have known Ms. Oates for over ten years. I met her when she was a personal injury paralegal. She was known as a standout in the field at that time. Since then, Ms. Oates has attended law school and graduated with honors. During her time in law school, she helped me prepare for a very difficult high-profile case. Ms. Oates understands human behavior in a way that makes her a skilled advocate. Surprisingly, this is a very rare quality among most lawyers. In addition to her strong abilities and talents, Ms. Oates is a hard worker. This is why I asked her to work with me as soon as she took the bar. I am delighted to work with such a talent. Ms. Oates is one of the best personal injury lawyers that I know."
