Nathan Powell graduated with honors degrees in Publication Management and English from the University of Georgia, and received his J.D. from Georgia State University.  He serves as general counsel for individuals and small businesses for a wide range of legal issues.  

Nathan was made a full partner in July, 2016.

Nathan focuses his efforts at the firm on civil litigation and estate planning.  The other partners have passed on to Nathan the tradition of tackling specialized lawsuits that require careful attention, what Tony Powell has called "custom litigation." The other partners' keen sense of right and wrong, fearlessness, and eagerness to help their clients are all integral to the firm culture, and Nathan has made it his goal to follow in their footsteps.  Nathan has served as primary counsel in personal injury cases, contractual and probate disputes, among many others.

In addition to his litigation efforts, Nathan also leads the wills, trusts and estates practice at Powell & Edwards, which includes the review and implementation of estate plans for a wide variety of clients.  The firm prides itself on its expertise and flexibility to help all comers, so Nathan's practice is fairly evenly divided between corporate succession and individual estate planning.   Nathan considers it a pleasure and a joy to help his clients meet their needs, protect their families, and safeguard their future by developing and implementing tailor-made estate plans.

Nathan graduated from Georgia State University School of Law, where he learned estate planning and business succession law from Professors Anne Emanuel and Mary Radford. While at Georgia State University, Nathan earned the distinction of completing the Capstone class, which is a program designed by Mary Radford to train students in tax- and business succession planning.

In the community, Nathan has been actively involved in the Gwinnett Bar Association, 12Stone Church, and the Advisory Council to the Gwinnett Chapter of the Salvation Army. Nathan has spoken about estate planning and probate matters to the local chapters of the AARP and the Rotary Club, as well as several other private groups.
