Who is Attorney Toney?
I believe you must bring your whole self to the table if you want to thrive in today’s crazy world; your personality, your sense of humor, and most importantly, your heart. All of these elements gave me the idea to launch this website.
My name is Nesharianna Toney. Most people call me Nesha. I grew up in the small town of Tylertown, Mississippi to a determined single mother. I knew I wanted to be an attorney from the time the fictional Claire Huxtable appeared on my tv screen on the Cosby Show. I attended the University of Mississippi and my freshman year my mother died suddenly. I persevered and went on to graduate cum laude in only three years. I then attended law school at the University of Mississippi School of Law and earned my J.D. degree there. Shortly after, I moved to Atlanta, Georgia, and have been practicing law ever since. As a young lawyer, lady lawyer, and African American lawyer, I found myself dealing with imposter syndrome and had to find a sense of belonging within the profession. It is my goal to help others within the profession, as well as, people who may want to join the legal profession find their way. Please browse the website and check out our services.
