Olivia Smith (Estate Planning and Elder Law)
I am a Georgia girl and a Spelmanite. I received my law degree from Loyola New Orleans College of Law and have been practicing law for thirteen years. I am very active in my community as a member of the Junior League of Douglas County as well as mentoring young women from elementary school to college graduates. I am also very active in my church.
I love, sports, politics, and to laugh out loud. I am also very close to my family. My relationship with my grandparents and experience with their lack of planning is what brought me to the world of estate planning and probate.
I am passionate about educating and empowering families to make different decisions that can literally change the trajectory of their family through estate planning. I believe my work is not just a career but also a calling. I want to help as many people protect their legacy and build generational wealth through their planning.
This work is a labor of love for me and I hope each client feels that in every interaction they have with me from the initial consultation to the closure of their case.
Nicola Robinson (Estate Planning and Elder Law)
I am a planner. It’s in my blood. Ever since I can remember, I’ve been a person to make checklist, outlines and detailed plans. (You should have seen the spreadsheets for planning my wedding. They were epic). Now every day, I get to help families create estate and long-term care plans to protect those that they love the most. It’s really my dream job.
I consider myself an Atlanta girl. We moved here when I was four. I attended Douglass High (Go Astros!), Emory University and Penn State for law school. I found Pennsylvania to be way too cold, so I came right back to Atlanta.
I transitioned to estate planning, after the person I loved the most, my grandmother, died suddenly, leaving my father in a long and bitter conflict with his siblings over land that had been in the family for several generations. It’s my mission to help other families avoid the heartache we had to endure.

We become partners devoted to your financial endeavors so we can balance the steps necessary to help you reach your long-term goals.
I came to Edward Jones in 2018 because I want to help investors work toward achieving what is important to them.

I am also a proud member of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity Inc. My passions are education, wealth strategies, mentoring and financial literacy.
Patience and deep dedication to assisting my clients reach their goals are personal strengths. My inspiration and motivation are my extended but large family. I am still humbled and honored to assist others with their personal and financial matters.
