GEORGE S. “SAM” NICHOLSON
Sam began his legal career at the District Attorney’s Office and served as an Assistant District Attorney for two and a half years before joining Nicholson Revell. While serving as an Assistant District Attorney, Sam was responsible for handling the full prosecution of hundreds of felony cases in Richmond, Columbia, and Burke Counties.
