J. Nikki Oates
Jessica “Nikki” Oates began her legal career as a personal injury paralegal at a law firm in Atlanta, Georgia. After several years assisting attorneys in advocating for their clients, she decided she wanted to do more, so she returned to school to obtain her law degree.
Nikki found that she has a passion for the field of personal injury and loves helping those who have been injured as a result of the negligence of someone else. After completing law school and graduating with a Cum Laude distinction, she returned to Atlanta where she began her career with Gary Martin Hays and Associates.
When Nikki is not working for her clients, she volunteers in various organizations throughout the community. She and her husband have three beautiful children. Nikki and her family enjoy spending time outdoors hiking and kayaking as well as being involved in their local church. They are also avid Braves and Falcons fans, but it’s a house divided when it comes to college football.
