Nancy L. Richardson: Attorney with Stewart, Melvin & Frost, LLP
Attorney Awards


In addition to leading the firm’s collaborative practice, Nancy Richardson provides counsel and research in the firm's litigation and corporate sections.

Ms. Richardson was the first attorney in the Gainesville area to be trained in the flexible model of collaborative practice — an alternative to divorce litigation — in association with local mental health and financial professionals. Affiliated with the Collaborative Law Center of Atlanta, Ms. Richardson represents individuals in divorces and related disputes affecting families through either litigation or the collaborative approach.

In addition to her growing collaborative practice, Ms. Richardson focuses on appellate issues. She previously worked as an appellate staff attorney with the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals and the Georgia Court of Appeals. This experience provides a strong advantage to clients whose civil disputes, whether business or domestic, require appellate litigation.

Ms. Richardson holds a bachelor's degree in English from St. Andrews Presbyterian College as well as a master's degree and Ph.D in English from the University of Delaware. She earned her law degree at the University of Georgia. She has taught both English and paralegal studies at the college level.
