Atlanta Divorce Lawyer Near Me Nancy Ghertner

Hello, my name is Nancy Ghertner and I have been an Atlanta divorce lawyer for almost 30 years.

I graduated from Georgia State University College of Law in 1988 and founded Nancy N. Ghertner, PC, a family law and business law firm in Sandy Springs GA.

Since 1988, my professional focus has been on representing men and women who needed a strong divorce attorney during a very difficult time in their lives. Divorces are not easy even if you are the one who filed. If you have young children or own a family business, dividing assets fairly and securing a good home for the kids require tough negotiation with opposing counsel. Nancy Ghertner’s job is to keep the emotions out of it and treat the breakup like a business transaction. But Nancy also has compassion for her clients and for her client’s children, and she will fight for the rights of her clients until the divorce decree is finalized by a Superior Court judge.

Rarely do divorce proceedings end up in court in front of a Georgia family judge, but if necessary Nancy will be fully prepared to present your side in court. Most divorces are hammered out between Nancy and opposing counsel, and contact between the opposing parties is minimal. This is because most divorces are highly charged with emotions. Divorce attorney in Atlanta Nancy Ghertner will prepare and then negotiate the following key points:

How I Made the Decision to Become an Atlanta Divorce Lawyer

I had been looking for awhile, trying to find a way to give back to my community, and I determined that being a divorce lawyer in Atlanta was the way to realize that goal.  I went back to law school with a husband that traveled, two small children and three dogs – none of which were housebroken!

After graduating from law school and passing the State of Georgia Bar, I found myself a single parent, still with two precious young children, but only one dog (still not housebroken), so I decided to open my own general civil Atlanta law firm in Sandy Springs, GA.

Since that time, being a lawyer, (especially a sole practitioner) has surpassed my wildest dreams.  I am able to help my clients resolve their family law and business law issues, and become more involved in my community.

It is my privilege to offer my experience, dedication, and personal attention to all people that I serve as their Atlanta divorce lawyer.

Please call me at (770) 980-9096, or email I will meet with you in my Sandy Springs office located off Roswell Road just north of I-285. FREE 10 Minute Phone Consultation is available as well. I practice all safe distancing measures.
