I entered the field of law later in life than some other attorneys because I started out as an early childhood educator. The experience I gained in teaching for a number of years before receiving a full scholarship to law school gives me a unique perspective on the law and an ability to communicate extremely effectively with both my clients and the court. I am here to help you and I take that responsibility as seriously as you do.

Worth every penny
Nathan Jackson represented me for my divorce and in hammering out a custody arrangement that worked in the best interests of my child. The processes was made as painless as possible and Mr. Jackson spent plenty of time with me on the phone and in person meetings going over possibilities. Furthermore when the process was stalled out by the other party's refusal to sign the agreement Mr. Jackson was able expedite the process and get things back on track so that they were completed in a timely fashion.

Mr. Jackson represented me in my divorce. He was professional, thorough, and very responsive to my emails and phone calls. The whole process went very smoothly and he took the time to explain everything to me. He made it all very easy and I highly recommend him.

Excellent Experience
Mr. Jackson represented me during my divorce in 2018 and then a name change in 2020. During the divorce process, he remained in constant communication and answered my many questions. In 2020, I reached out for assistance in restoring my maiden name. Despite the national pandemic and judicial emergency, he kept the process moving and we were able to complete the process fairly quickly. He is very through and detailed in his work and provides excellent communication.

Extremely helpful, especially during these trying times
Going through a custody case is hard enough. Going through it during a pandemic is so much worse. Mr. Jackson was available for me to talk to, knowledgeable about everything, and didn't just say what I wanted to hear. He did what needed to be done, and was able to settle my case in mediation, without having to go to court, in a way that wasn't everything that I wanted, but more than I expected. If you're ever in an unfortunate situation to need an attorney, I would recommend him!

Awesome Guy! Knowledgeable, insightful, & helpful.
Very easy to talk to, having never been through anything like my situation before he walked me through every step, even when I probably bombarded him with a million questions. He took his time to answer every single one specifically and honestly, even emailing me back on his personal time to help me. I felt like I was his only client, even though I'm sure this man has tons. I don't know what would have happened without his help! I would absolutely recommend him to anyone.

Helped Save My Son from Dangerous Situation
I usually don't write reviews but my experience with Nathan was so positive I felt the need to let potential clients know. I could not have asked for a better lawyer, I was completely clueless going in and I was in a VERY difficult position to get custody of my son. Nathan was always available for my questions and concerns and when the court date finally came he was so much better prepared than the other attorney that he wiped the floor with him. His opening and closing remarks were awesome and during cross examinations he always seemed comfortable and asked the right questions. If you need an attorney I strongly recommend Nathan Jackson, my son is currently living with me and doing really well largely because of this man.

Family law
Nathan is one of the most incredible attorneys I've ever encountered. His attention to detail, listening and comprehension, along with his knowledge of law is superb! He knows how to present a case with fact based evidence and can get you to your end goal. He always works in the best interest of his client even when things get emotional. The paralegals are so pleasant and caring. You can tell they enjoy their work. He's worth every penny. Thank you Nathan!

Custody Attorney
Not knowing a custody attorney in my area, I search the web and decided to contact Nathan Jackson. Nathan was very curteous and thoughtful to me and my daughter when we meet for consultation. He made me feel comfortable while talking about my personal custody situation. Wow, what a pleasant surprise it was to be able to totally trust and rely on Nathan to handle everything effortlessly. I will definitely will recommend him in the future.

Great lawyer and a stand-up guy!
I recently went through a divorce, and this is definitely a great lawyer for that! It was uncontested, after waiting my spouse out. With Nathan's great advice, patience, guidance, and encouraging words, it was pretty painless on my part. He got me exactly what I wanted, and I know that if things had gotten ugly, he would have had my back 110%, making sure that everything would be in my favor. He already did that with the uncontested divorce. I hope to never need another lawyer, but if I did, I'd be consulting with Nathan Jackson first and foremost!

Excellent experience
I can't remember at any time writing a review for anything or anyone but felt the need to do one in this case. Divorce is hard and in some cases like mine can be very complicated. I could not have chosen a better attorney than Nathan. From the first meeting through the whole process he always kept in mind what was most important to me for my outcome. He took care of all aspects of a divorce so that myself and son were protected and taken care of He always kept me informed and made sure I understood everything through several ups and downs through this process. He always knew how to handle all situations that came our way and never wavered from what was important and did so without grandstanding or that in your face attitude with opposing side which he could have easily done which is what made him so effective and in the end my results could not have been better. Anyone going through what life throws us and are in need of an attorney you absolutely cannot and will not go wrong or be disappointed with Nathan. He is smart, knowledgeable and he knows when to be tough and when to hold back in order to get it done and it was amazing to listen and watch how his mind worked and how he thought through everything at all times. I will always and forever be grateful to Nathan and what he did for myself and my son.

Nathan E. Jackson Did a Great Job for Us. 100% Satisfied, Very Impressed.
We used Nathan for a temporary protective order recently. He was exceptional in every way. He was very responsive and kept us informed every step of the way. He also worked around our work schedules, he's not just a 9-5 guy. We would use his services again although, of course, we hope we don't have to. Thank you Nathan for helping us when we were in need.

Great lawyer in a very difficult situation
Nathan helped me when I was lost and didn't know which way to turn. He was very helpful and laid out all my options for me . He was great and I would recommend him to anyone.
Posted by Michelle | May 2, 2014
Very Pleased!
We obtained Nathan's services for a couple different incidents. 1 was years ago....the case was difficult but Nathan made it seem like a walk in the park because of his knowledge and his professionalism. He is very knowledgable on every level. He also helped us out with an issue with my daughter and some boys at her school. The way he spoke to my daughter was very impressive. I can not express enough that Nathan is a brilliant attorney and ALWAYS makes you feel like part of his family. He goes the extra mile to take care of his clients! I would most definitely retain him again if needed. He made my very bad situations easier to cope with and he cared about every issue that I brought to him.

the only lawyer I've needed.
My experiences with Nathan Jackson have been excellent. A man who believes in my rights as a father, and helped me secure those rights. Recently, I hired him to protect my possessions. He is very intelligent, and will always be my first contact for legal assistance. Explained my rights and helped me exercise them to keep my stuff.

Excellent professional legal representation!

Best Juvenile Lawyer in Douglasville
I had an interesting legal case involving our teenage son. While the circumstances were rare, Nathan handled it like a pro. He knew exactly what to do and helped our family navigate the system. We got the best outcome for all involved. We couldn't have been happier with the results. The nature of our case dragged out over 12 months. Nathan was always attentive and kept us informed of each step and what to expect.
