Nicholas Cantrell's legal career is about helping ordinary people navigate extraordinary circumstances. As the legal system can be overly complex and intimidating, Mr. Cantrell works to put his clients at ease about whatever legal situation they are facing.
Mr. Cantrell has focused his practice on criminal litigation, primarily indigent defense. Most recently, he was employed by Georgia Public Defender Council as an Assistant Public Defender. He represented indigent individuals at all phases or the judicial process, giving him experience in the courtroom by arguing motions, attending hearings and trying cases in front of a jury to verdict.
Mr. Cantrell graduated from Assumption College in Worcester, Massachusetts in 2010. At Assumption, he played four years of Division II Football. He worked and volunteered coaching youth sports on summer breaks. In 2014, Mr. Cantrell graduated from Emory University School of Law where he was selected to be a member of the Mock Trial Society and competed in national trial competitions throughout the U.S. (New York, California, Texas and North Carolina). He also served two years as the National Director of the Mental Health Initiative for the American Bar Association’s Law Student Division. In that role, he actively combated the stigma associated with mental illness and substance abuse issues in law schools through advocacy and collaboration with other groups. Upon graduation he was selected into the Emory University Order of the Advocates for his performance in national trial competitions and awarded the Burt and Betty Schear Book Prize, which is given on a university wide basis to a student most likely to make a uniquely positive mark on his or her universe.
