Attorney with ethics and proven results
Attorney Hanyard represented me in my divorce case, she was professional, knowledgeable, and court savvy. I was nervous at first because I had never had to endure a trial, but when I saw her navigate through the courtroom I was confident I was in good hands. I would recommend Attorney Hanyard and her team for your legal matters. Pamela Jackson

Excellent Family Law Attorney
I retained the Hanyard Law firm for a family law matter. This was my first court case and I had no idea what to expect. Mrs. Hanyard was very direct and clear on what I should expect and the strategy we should take in order to win my case. Her advice was spot on. She was competent, professional and personable. I will always be thankful and highly recommend the Hanyard Law firm to anyone in need of a family law attorney,

Hanyard Law
The initial consultation put my mind and heart at ease. As I left the office I knew from that moment forward I had made the right decision to hire Hanyard Law Firm to represent me. It was very easy to communicate with Attorney Hanyard. She listened without interruption and provided an assessment that was beneficial in handling the case. I was kept abreast of any and all actions going forward I am so grateful that the end result were fruitful and satisfying. Thank you Attorney Hanyard for the excellent representation.

Hanyard Law Helped Me Through the Roughest Time in My Life
Divorce is hard. I am so glad that I was referred to Nicol Hanyard at Hanyard Law. Nicol was a sharp and zealous advocate for me, and at times when my emotions got in the way, for my daughter. I could count on Nicol to keep me grounded in reality about the things that I had done to make my case more difficult. She wasn’t afraid to tell me the truth about where I stood. Nicol never “over promised” results and made sure that I understood all of the factors involved with my case and the legal process. Her staff was always friendly and professional. I highly recommend Hanyard Law for your family law case. While I am glad that my divorce is complete, I will miss my interactions with the staff at Hanyard Law. I am fortunate to have had them by my side.

Trustworthy Service
Attorney Hanyard was the lawyer for a recent (2020) family law related matter. I heartily recommend Attorney Hanyard, as I was delighted to receive excellent customer service. She is timely (shows up to appointments/Court on time); displayed great knowledge/research skills for both GA and federal law; her communication is professional and consistent; she showed good judgment throughout the case; and I found her to be just plain helpful. Thank you, Attorney Hanyard, for doing a great job. It is greatly appreciated, especially during challenging or stressful life events.

Mr. A Holder
First of all let me thank you Ms Hanyard for the professional job you did in handling my case. You were very detailed in what you need to move forward in my case. You always handled the case in a very calm way but getting your point across. Most Attorney's would have given up but you were persistence in what we were asking for at the trial. You are a good example of what an Lawyer should stand for . I truly hope that all of your clients are satisfied with your work as I am truly Satisfied with the outcome. If anyone ask me for a good attorney you would be at the top of my list for recommendation. Again thaks Ms Hanyard for a job well done.
