Highly Recommended
I use Nancy's services for real estate closings. She and her entire staff have always given me and my clients nothing but excellent service. I have had quite a few difficult closings this year and her office have worked diligently to make things happen so we could make it to the closing table with clear titles.

Real Estate, Wills, Trust, Family Matters
My husband and I have used Nancy Maddox for real estate assistance, wills, trust, family troubles and much more. Mrs. Maddox and her staff are very professional and accommodating on appointments and greeted us as if we were the most important client to walk in their door. She made us feel very comfortable discussing personal issues and understands the law very well. We highly recommend her to all our family and friends.

Outstanding Service that went Above and Beyond
My dad and I used Nancy Cochran Maddox when my mom was diagnosed with a rapid onset of dementia related to emergency guardianship. Because of the urgency of the matter, Mrs. Maddox met with us during her lunch hour to draft out a petition. We received expert advice, and she was very caring and put us at ease during a difficult time. After my mom passed away, she handled the probate of my mom's estate. Her office also handled the closing for the sale of my house and the purchase of a new house for me and my dad. Her staff is also very knowledgeable and professional. I have been extremely pleased and would highly recommend their services to anyone in need of a great attorney!

Our Closing Attorney!
We never doubted who we would use as our closing attorney for the purchase of our new home. Nancy and her staff are professional, knowledgeable, and very easy to work with. We would definitely recommend them to our family, friends, or anyone looking to close on a home.

Outstanding for not only Real Estate, but Elderly law as well
I have used Nancy Maddox to close on four of my real estate transactions over the last three years and will use her every time I get the chance to! Nancy and her team were always on top of everything, very prompt, displayed the upmost professionalism, and they even have stayed late (after 5 PM) on Fridays so I could make the drive from Atlanta. I've also used Nancy to begin getting my mother's estate in order when the time comes. I cannot recommend Nancy enough and hope to use her many more times over the upcoming years!

I wish they could ALL be like Nancy!
Closing procedures are just a fact of life in the real estate world. Having said that, I have had the opportunity to work with many in Georgia and every time that I am at a closing table with other firms, I utter the phrase, "I wish they could all be like Nancy." From the minute they take on a case, to the processing and all of the way through the final signature at the closing table, Nancy Maddox and her office staff make you feel like you are top priority. Emails are returned immediately, answers are only a phone call away, there is organization, everyone's schedule is accommodated as much as possible and the transactions and legalities are explained so very clearly. Even when there are snags in the process, I can be guaranteed to have resolution in a very timely manner with Nancy and her staff. To go into a stressful closing and have EVERYONE walk out with a smile is a wonderful thing. I would highly recommend anyone needing personal attention with legal services to contact Nancy Cochran Maddox Law!

Difficult to reach and does not follow through
Nancy was hired to do a quiet claim deed on property purchased at a tax sale. She told me that she does this type work. She was hired and given a retainer in June 2016. By August 2016 nothing had been done and it took me calling the office repeatedly to get a response. She did complete a search for heirs to property in October 2019 and sent one letter, but only because I called several times to get her moving. She sent a letter to the heirs and never followed up. I guess she had my money and then did not have time to do the work. I have hired another attorney.

Don't do real estate closings with this office
We had an unbelievably horrible experience trying to close on a piece of property. Time after time, there was an excuse from the paralegal in Jasper about why she couldn't get the documents to the seller. Time after time, things got lost or misplaced. We probably called10 times trying to straighten things out. Each time we called, she said she was "about to call us." If we had not stayed on top of this transaction, we are convinced we would NEVER have closed. The seller had so little confidence in the attorney that he finally drove from South Florida to pick up the check because it had never been sent out to him, over a week after our signing closing documents and over two weeks after having transferred money to the attorney. Don't put yourself through this. Find another attorney.
