Family Law litigation can involve great expense, the stress of conflict, the uncertainty of leaving decisions to a judge, and the loss of your privacy. Although it is not for everyone, through mediation or collaborative law, you can reach agreement peacefully while meeting your needs and goals at a fraction of the cost. Through our expert mediation services and support you can solve your differences respectfully, privately, and directly, without the hostility and adversity of a long court battle. Our collaborative law services will enable you to work with the support of a team of professionals to settle your issues comprehensively and confidentially without the threat of litigation, create an ongoing working relationship with your spouse and avoid the destruction of your family. When litigation is unavoidable we offer zealous representation to achieve your goals and your children's best interests.

With over twenty-five years of experience practicing family law in Massachusetts, I have been counsel in notable trial court decisions such as a Norfolk Probate Court order granting mistrial of a divorce trial. I have appeared before the Supreme Judicial Court and presented numerous appeals before the Massachusetts Appeals Court, and have been counsel of record in several published and unpublished decisions dealing with child custody issues. In addition to my private practice, I am a mentor member of the Committee for Public Counsel Services Children and Family Law Appeals Panel, handling child welfare appeals.

Highly recommend
I retained Beth as my divorce lawyer about a year or so ago. She was down to earth, highly knowledgeable, was available after hours, could explain things in layman's terms and well, handled it all(children, stock grants, a good salary, a business, retirement monies, etc...) I am really happy with the outcome of my divorce. I would highly recommend her to anyone going through a divorce.

Outstanding
I was suddenly looking at divorce after a marriage of 10 years (My ex partner and I were gay, both female). I never knew when I got married in Massachusetts that I would be facing divorce but no one expects that I guess. Anyway, I knew nothing about divorce, I was a mess, the divorce unfolded during the Christmas holidays and winter, and my ex partner was much more experienced in those matters of divorce than I was. My ex partner and I (now amicable) were fighting non stop, and it was a very precarious time for me. Beth guided me through my options and through her information, I feel like I made the best decisions possible for my situation. Thanks to her I did not need to leave my home and i can get back on my feet. I highly recommend her.

BETH NUSSBAUM IS AWESOME!!!
Beth Nussbaum reviewed my divorce paperwork and financials to give me peace of mind and security. She found ways to integrate provisions that would be to my benefit that I didn't see myself. Hiring Beth because a friend referred me to her helped me feel confident in her hard work! A female divorce attorney is the way to go!!

Did a great job resolving my issue!
Beth represented me in my contempt and modification proceedings when my former spouse failed to pay child support and college tuition obligations, putting myself and our children under terrible financial strain. Beth zealously advocated for our interests, and after intense courthouse negotiations my former spouse finally agreed to do the right thing. B.N.

Great Attorney!
Beth represented me throughout my divorce case. She is a fantastic divorce attorney. She was knowledgeable, efficient, compassionate and confident. Everything and nothing about my case was simple, she took care of everything without ever thinking twice. She was prompt to all the appearances, phone calls she answered all emails, texts and all questions that I had. She was and is worth every penny I couldn't have asked for a better attorney. I lived my life in this box for so long because of an unhappy person and a tough situation, I am now free to live my life the way I want and have my daughter thanks to Beth's hard work and dedication. I highly recommend choosing attorney Nussbaum.

Make Beth Nussbaum your Lawyer
I am truly grateful for the legal support I received from Beth Nussbaum. She came highly recommended from a friend of mine. Going through a divorce is emotionally draining and can be very complicated with all of the paperwork, deadlines etc. Beth really took me under her wing and awoke my confidence that had been asleep during this ordeal. She has tenacity and fire. She worked tirelessly and fought to ensure that I would be treated fairly through this process. I am ex-Military and she treated me with the utmost respect. Beth Nussbaum is one of the best decisions I have made. She always made time for me when I had any questions or just needed an opinion. Let’s face it, divorce is awful but if there is a person that can make the process easier on you it’s Beth. Thank you again Beth.

Lucky to have found her
Divorce is a very emotional and complicated process....I called and have met with many attorneys who seemed to care about money only. Beth offered a free consultation and I knew I have found my attorney. She is super detail oriented, knowledgeable, patient and compassionate. She has made the process transparent and advised me on every aspect of it. I had the best outcome possible and could't have done it without her. Highly recommend!!!

Very professional and supportive
I hired Beth for my divorce. She was always very professional and supportive and I always felt as though she had my best interest in mind. She took the time to explain things very clearly and answered all my questions. She was there for me whenever I needed her. She was always very well prepared for our meetings as well as in the court room. She did not try to drag the process out and was very diligent in responding to opposing counsel promptly and professionally. Beth helped me through a very difficult time and I always felt she had my back. Thank you Beth for all your efforts and support.

Wonderful experience with a difficult issue
Beth was wonderful. I had a difficult issue come up with my ex that concerned our daughter. Beth listened to my concerns and understood I was trying to get through this as amicably as possible and provided sound advice based on that. She helped me plan for/understand if it did not happen that way as well. She was quick to respond and kind. I would recommend her to anyone.

Excellent choice
I have only the best things to say about Attorney Nussbaum. I retained Beth after having had disappointing experiences with 3 other attorneys in regards to divorce issues and feel fortunate to have eventually found someone who is great. Not only does she have a great grasp of the law, she is very personable and she is sincere. I have truly felt that she will fight for me tooth and nail but will also tell me what is realistic and what is not, and what to expect in a certain situation. She is reasonably priced and has always made herself available to me by phone or email so I have been able to reach her in an emergency situation. She helped me resolve a very difficult situation with my ex that 2 other lawyers had failed to do before and I am very thrilled that I found her. Overall I couldn't be more satisfied.
