James S. “Sandy” Owens, Jr. (1942 – 2013)

Sandy Owens was a driving force and steady hand for Nall & Miller from the time he joined the firm until his untimely death in 2013. Throughout his fine career, he counseled his clients with intellect, insight and grace. Hundreds of Georgia trial lawyers benefited from Sandy’s continued teaching at almost any trial academy given in the state. As one Chairman summed up his service, “I can say without reservation that Sandy is the best lawyer we have had at the Trial Academy.”

He became a trusted advisor and counselor to his many clients. Throughout his career, Bob mentored younger attorneys and in many ways was the social and ethical conscience of the firm.  He always exemplified professionalism and was respected by his colleagues and adversaries alike.
