Wakisha E. Hazzard was born and raised in Savannah, Georgia. She graduated from Georgia Southern University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Political Science and a double minor in English and Fashion Merchandising. Soon after graduating, Wakisha decided to pursue her legal career. She graduated from Miles Law School in 2009, magna cum laude, and then became certified as an attorney in 2011. Soon after certification, she went on to lay the foundation for her own law firm, The Hazzard Law Firm, LLC, specializing in matters related to personal injury cases, family law and divorce matters, and criminal litigation. Crediting her accomplishments to God and her strong family structure, Wakisha has not only established a legal legacy, but through her leadership, her humanitarianism and her philanthropy is navigating a vessel designed to assist and serve others. She is extremely active in the community and is passionate about giving back to that community through acts of service. Wakisha is a dedicated, faithful, and active member at New Hope Baptist Church, where the Pastor Gregory L. Clarke is officiating.
