“My first experience in working with Nancy was when she worked with me during my divorce. She took a very pragmatic approach to managing what is a very emotionally charged situation. I knew that together we would get through that difficult time. Because of that experience, I have continued to work with Nancy on all of my personal legal matters since. I have also, and will continue to recommend her to anyone looking for a great attorney.”

W.H. Newnan, GA

Nancy Ghertner has been my attorney for many (many) years.  It started with handling a divorce in a very articulate and professional manner.  She was able to explain everything and guide me to make the best legal decisions. She is knowledgeable but more importantly I trust her 100%.

I have recommended her to others when they needed legal guidance for family situations.  She is always my “go to” person.  I’m very comfortable in knowing that she will provide the same level of excellent legal service that I have always received.
