Atlanta Divorce Lawyer Nancy Ghertner

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

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

Since 1988, my professional focus has been on representing men and women who need a strong divorce attorney during a very difficult time in their lives. An Atlanta divorce is not easy even if you are the one who initiated it. If you have young children or own a family business, dividing assets fairly and securing a good home for the kids requires 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 negotiated between Nancy and your spouse’s attorney, and contact between the opposing parties is minimal. This is because most divorces are highly charged with emotions. 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 a while, 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 can help my clients resolve their family 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 [email protected]. 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.

Wanted to thank you for all your advice and instruction.  You were so kind and thoughtful.  I am so fortunate that we crossed paths.  My divorce was final 12-30 and now I can work on moving forward with a healthy future!  I am keeping you on file for friends and will be happy to refer you.

“ My first experience in working with Nancy was when she worked with me during my divorce. She took a very pragmatic approach to manage 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.”

“I have used Nancy Ghertner for our business legal issues for almost 15 years.  She has been great!  There have been a few legal HR issues over the years that needed legal guidance.  We have also needed support with contracts review, incorporation transfer work, and an occasional client ‘late notice’ document. She is always calm and professional even when I am overwhelmed with an issue.  I cannot imagine ever-changing business attorneys.”

During various life events, I had to seek the counsel of an attorney.  To this date, Nancy Ghertner is the most impressive attorney that I have ever hired.  Nancy is diligent at securing the best results for her clients, professionally personable, intelligent, ethical, and reasonably priced for her services. But, most of all, I felt that she very sincerely and personally cares about her clients. If I ever need to seek legal counsel again, I wouldn’t hesitate to pick up the phone and call Nancy as many of my friends and family members have done
