About Me

I was born and raised in Omaha, NE which gives me a special appreciation and love for the city. 


I attended Creighton University School of Law where she earned her law degree in 2009.  Having a passion for social work and helping others, I completed my graduate degree at Creighton University, earning my Master of Science in Negotiation and Dispute Resolution in 2011.  I believe this improved my skills to help clients works towards resolution without the sometimes scary and unpredictable nature of the court room. 


I joined Hightower Law in July 2011 and I have been an associate with Hightower Reff since January 2o12.  I am  a certified mediator through the Office of Dispute Resolution.  I have gained valuable experience in family law issues and mediation.  This experience has allowed me to effectively represent my clients and assist them through the legal process toward a successful resolution.


In my downtime, I enjoy reading, playing sand volleyball, snowmobiling, and other outdoor activities.

    What makes Kristin a great mediator is her excellent problem-solving and peace-making abilities. She is able to remain neutral throughout the mediation process and help the parties resolve their case. I would not hesitate to use her as a mediator in any type of case.
