Excellent Family Law Attorney
Sharmila represented me during my divorce and two child custody modification cases. I was very pleased with their outcomes. Sharmila proved to be very knowledgeable in the law and gave excellent counsel throughout. She was pragmatic and always sought to find a mutually agreeable resolution with the opposing party. I achieved a favorable, yet fair, outcome in each of my cases through mediation, which would not have been possible if it weren't for Sharmila's fair and firm negotiating style. Avoiding court saved a lot of money and stress for which I am very grateful. Sharmila cares about her clients and the families they are fighting for. Without her skill and dedication, I wouldn't have nearly the parenting time with my children that I do. I highly recommend Sharmila to anyone who wants a hard-working, competent attorney that truly cares for her client.

Excellent Lawyer : Wish I had met her earlier
I went thru a contested divorce, when I hired an other lawyer. My Ex and I had a settlement agreement, and my ex filed a contempt motion, and recited some email exchange that had happened between my attorney and his attorney. I was pretty disappointed with the words that my previous lawyer had used in her email exchange with the OC, and I was reluctant to hire her again for this contempt. So, I consulted Sharmila for some advice on this case. She not only tried to understand each and every aspect of my case, but also seemed to understand my underlying emotions. I wished I had hired her to handle my case at the first place. She is an amazing lawyer, who offers quality with care in her work. I will definitely recommend her to anyone seeking a family lawyer.

Excellent family lawyer with prompt service
Sharmila is a trust worthy and cooperative attorney that comes highly recommended for family, immigration, and the full set of legal services she offers.

Great attorney
Sharmila represented me in a complicated divorce and family immigration matter. She responded promptly to all my e-mails, calls and questions. Because of the stubborness of my spouse, we had to try the matter in court. She did a great job in court and she was very prepared. I also felt that she examined my case thoroughly so that there were no surprises. Sharmila also assisted me in an immigration matter and she worked very hard so that I prevailed. I am so glad that she was recommended to me!

Legal savvy and a kind, compassionate nature
Sharmila represented me in my divorce proceedings that involved minor children and the complex issues that arise due to international travel, visitation, property division, job related move across state lines with the background of prior abuse and controlling nature of the ex. She understood what was important for me and was very compassionate during the hardest period in my life. She fought for my rights with superior legal expertise and experience and was able to seek outcomes that gave the legal relief I needed at the time. I will be forever grateful to her for her handling of my case and for her being not just my attorney but my advocate. I highly recommend her.

Best Attorney!
I needed a lawyer who would listen/care and then defend. Sharmila exceptionally met my needs. I don't have enough words to describe how amazing the experience with Sharmila was. She work very hard to make sure you have winning results. I could not have asked for better services. From the moment I first called until my case was over, I was at ease that I has made the right choice. Excellent service, excellent attorneys and excellent person. Very highly recommended.

A satisfactory experience
I was very satisfied in my dealings with Sharmila. She handled my divorce case, which was a complicated case because it involved immigration issues. She was uniquely qualified to handle it. I found her to be an excellent lawyer. She handled matters diligently and responded to my phone calls in a timely manner. She is very knowledgeable in both her areas of expertise, and I thought her fees were reasonable. I would recommend her to anyone.

Divorce client
Sharmila represented me during my divorce proceedings and I can honestly say she did an outstanding job representing me in the Georgia legal court system as well as individually one on one with me. I would recommend her to anyone that is unfortunately dealing with the stress and heartbreak of divorce, not only is she reasonable with her attorney fees but she is also caring, patient, understanding, empathetic and very attentive. Although, she is not a psychologist or psychiatrist and she does not portray herself to be, but her interactions are so comforting and supportive which may lead you to believe she is. Ms. Nambiar is highly professional and very knowledgeable in her field of expertise. She is the type of attorney that will go to bat for her client.

Amazing Experience - Family and Immigration Law Experience
Sharmila is an attorney with a conscience and a heart and that is rare these days. All her advice is focused on your well-being and de-escalating situations and keeping cost under control. We did have to go to court once as part of family law, she was very professional but completely in control or the situation and got a huge victory - she was super prepared and amazing. I also had the opportunity to have Sharmila help us multiple times with Immigration law issues -- she made it seem so simple and pleasant with minimal issues. I would highly recommend Sharmila for family and immigration law -- an excellent attorney in every way!

A supportive and professional divorce lawyer
Sharmila represented me before I had fully decided that I wanted a divorce. She helped me go through the process to get a temp protective order so I could feel safe during the time I decided if I would be able to reconcile with my spouse who had become abusive. Soon it became clear to me divorce was necessary. During the entire time, she maintained a supportive role to me while remaining cordial and respectful in the needed communications with my former spouse. I was very pleased with her response time to phone calls and emails. It was evident she had many cases that were much more involved than mine, but she did not make me feel insignificant. I highly recommend her for her expertise and professionalism.

BAD ATTORNEY
IF YOU WANT TO LOSE YOUR DIVORCE CASE OR CHILD - SHARMILA IS THE ONE! MY FAMILY HIRED HER ONLY TO LOSE ALL CASH. SHARMILA IS AN UNPROFESSIONAL ATTORNEY, DISRESPECTFUL, WHO ONLY SEEKS FEES. SHE LEFT MY FAMILY DRY JUST BEFORE THE TRIAL.
Response from Sharmila Nambiar April 30, 2021
I am not sure if you are an actual client since I have not had a client who "lost" his/her child in a divorce case. I would be more than happy to discuss your concerns if you contact my office. I also have never withdrawn from a custody case where a trial date was already scheduled. On the very rare occassions where I have withdrawn from a matter, all related to communication and other issues that are confidential. I am straightforward with clients regarding all aspects of their case and perhaps you construed that as disrespect. I am sorry that you felt that way and wish you peace. If you wish to discuss your concerns in a public manner, I invite you to identify yourself and waive your confidentiality privileges.
