About me

At Pasley & Nuce, LLC, I practice primarily in family law and criminal defense, ranging from divorce, legitimation, adoption, deprivation, and custody cases to DUIs, misdemeanors, traffic citations, and major felonies.  Additionally, I have expanded my practice into the area of unemployment benefits law. 

Our firm is located in Griffin, Thomaston, and Barnesville, Georgia, but we travel across the state to represent our clients. 

The experienced attorneys in our firm also practice in the areas of personal injury, workers compensation, medical malpractice, products liability, and wills/probate. 

I have had the fortunate opportunity to work with Pasley & Nuce, LLC, and excel in the court room for our clients. If you are in need of an attorney now or you just want to ask a few questions, give me a call. I look forward to hearing from you.

  • Lance Newton Owen

    I have handled numerous cases with Jody over the past few years. He tenaciously represents his clients and he genuinely cares about them. He understands the law and, in my opinion, he gives sound legal advice. He is well liked by the judges as well as other lawyers. I think prospective clients might perceive Jody as very affable when they initially meet him, but they can expect dogged representation from him in their court proceedings.

  • Nathaniel Michael Smith

    I highly recommend Jody Sellers. He fights strongly for his client both in and out of the courtroom.
