“Your family lives in the 21st century, your lawyer should too.”

-Attorney Laura Nieusma

I have practiced exclusively family law for my entire career. I believe in keeping my clients fully informed of what is happening in their case, whether by phone call, email, or even text message. While I always try to settle my cases, I am most comfortable inside the courtroom, advocating for my client.

Whether you are going through a divorce or fighting over custody of a child, the courtroom can be a terrifying place. My job is to stand next to you at every moment, guiding you through the process and guiding the court to the correct decision.

Despite my best efforts, my ex would not agree to any reasonable settlement offers. While we were preparing for trial Laura was always willing to meet with me at times that worked for my schedule. Her flexibility and compassion made the process much less stressful.


During my divorce, Laura knew my life better than I did. She remembered every detail and used it successfully in preparing for trial.

My experience as a client of Laura Nieusma and Hertz Schram was extremely positive. Laura provided consistent and concise communication and demonstrated exceptional knowledge of family law.


Laura is an excellent and effective communicator, professional, quick to respond, easy to work with, and very personable. Her knowledge and confidence about the law reassured me that my case was in the very best hands.
