Many of the NMSB attorneys are trained and experienced family law mediators.  Keith MaplesAndi St. Leger, Lea NoelkeSam Colletti and Nikki Hudman are available to serve as informed, effective mediators for family law matters. We stay abreast of trends and changes in the law as well as how judges are ruling on family law matters.

We mediate both litigated and collaborative law cases. We also serve as arbitrators, on both full and limited issues, often for clients who prefer to avoid the publicity of the courthouse.

To each mediation, we bring experience as both litigators and collaborative law practitioners. This perspective helps in shaping and negotiating sensitive, wise solutions acceptable to both parties.

Each mediator has their own fee schedule.  For more information please call or email our Mediation Coordinator about the attorney you are interested in engaging.

What our clients say...
""...of all the lawyers and arbitrators I worked with, [Keith Maples was] by far my favorite, for several reasons. 1) You had great bedside manner and handled difficult clients well and with sincere earnest, and 2) you really cared, you really tried, and it was obvious. This, above all else, impressed me. I remember, when even my lawyers had thrown in the towel, you kept trying to make it work. It was the end of a long and painful day, you came in and said 'Wait, I think I have a solution. I have a decree I recently did that addressed a similar problem, let me see if I can...' You make a difference in peoples' lives when they need it most, and you bring back respect to your profession that many seem to have worked hard to lose."
