By the time she was 5-years-old, Nina Towle Herring had decided to become a lawyer. This prodigious desire to help people through the law began as young Nina watched re-runs of her favorite show, Matlock. This fictional portrayal of a lawyer made quite an impression on her, planting seeds of justice and service in her young mind.

As Nina grew, so did her interest in the history of law. She majored in history at the University of Georgia and studied historic legal victories of the civil rights era, focusing on justice-minded attorneys like Morris Dees and Thurgood Marshall. Then Nina's childhood dream became reality in 2014. After graduating cum laude from Cumberland School of Law and passing the bar, she began practicing law at Cory Watson.

During her first year of practice, she was a part of the first bellwether trial team for a massive water contamination case out of West Virginia and Ohio. The trial resulted in a $1.6 million dollar verdict for the plaintiff who had developed kidney cancer as a result of her exposure to the toxic water.

Nina and her husband enjoy tackling do-it-yourself projects over the weekend and reside in Vestavia Hills with their two active border collies, Wyatt and Fin. They welcomed their first child, a boy named Landrum Scott Herring, in 2018.
