About April

Learn April’s areas of practice.

I graduated from New England School of Law in 2009, and since then have practiced family law exclusively. 

I provide a customized, smart, practical and effective plan of representation to each of my clients. 

I represent clients in all aspects of divorce and separation, including support, property division, and custody and child support. I also advise clients on marriage contracts and cohabitation agreements, which range from straightforward to sophisticated contracts.

My committment to families extends past my work as a divorce attorney.  I serve as a Board Member for Nashville's GJCC, which provides valuable resources to Nashville families and children.  

As a family law attorney, I have the honor of serving those in need by being their voice, their advocate and helping guide their families forward.

Wise choice, thank you April
April is an excellent attorney, knowledgeable, personal, well spoken, and trustworthy. She is well versed in her field. She kept me in the loop and walked me through the entire process. Her clam and professional demeanor helped dissolve very tense situations, however, tough and aggressive with the offense when necessary. She was upfront about the risks and costs of each strategy. You won't find a more capable, ethical, and hard-working lawyer. I highly recommend April Nemer.

Unbelievable experience!
I hired April to represent me in what ended up being a long, contentious divorce. She was absolutely amazing. I couldn't have asked for more. I highly recommend April to anyone in need of an excellent divorce lawyer.

Child Custody Case
I could not have asked for a better attorney than April. She made my custody case for my daughter seem effortless. She was strong in the courtroom and made me feel 100% confident that I would win my case. Even when an appeal was filed after I won, she didn't back down and shut down any chance of another hearing. I've worked with several lawyers over the years and she is by far the most knowledgeable, the fiercest, and the nicest one I have ever had. She was always quick responding to my questions and explained everything that was happening step by step throughtout the process. She is wonderful and me and my family owe her our eternal gratitude for all of her hard work and devotion.
