Shanti Nagrani has extensive experience in domestic and criminal litigation. Prior to joining Stearns-Montgomery & Proctor, he received guardian ad litem training from the Dekalb County Bar Association, juvenile court training from the Dekalb County Juvenile Court, argued countless domestic cases to the court, and tried more than thirty jury trials.
In 2005, Shanti earned his Bachelor of Arts, magna cum laude, in political science and history from Georgia State University. He completed his first year of law school at Loyola University College of Law in New Orleans. While there, Shanti received an academic scholarship and, following a school-wide appellate competition, was selected to serve on the Moot Court Board. Shanti transferred to Tulane, where he earned his Juris Doctor in 2010.
Born and raised in the Roswell, Georgia area, Shanti always felt his roots were in metro Atlanta. He strives to support the families in his community. “When you practice family law, it’s not only about the client, but about the community we live in,” Shanti likes to say. It is this work-ethic and practical consideration that Shanti brings to each and every case he handles.
Described by his clients as responsive, empathic, and hard-working, Shanti is excited to work in the team environment SM&P is known for in the legal community. “It’s refreshing to know you have the collective knowledge of so many great attorneys as you fight for the rights and well-being of your client,” he said.
When Shanti is not practicing law, the majority of his time is spent with his wife, two children, and their German Shepherd-chow mix.
