About Keersten

Learn Keersten’s areas of practice.

As the child of divorced parents myself I know firsthand how children experience the divorce of their parents.  Luckily my parents put us first and the adverse effects were minimized.  My goal is to make the process as amicable as possible so as to protect not only your family's resources but your children.  When that is not possible however, my team is prepared to advocate on your behalf and take your case to trial if necessary.  Each case is unique and we aim to try and meet the unique needs of your case.

I highly recommend Keersten to be your choice .
Keersten was on top of my case and my lawyer in my divorce and custody case for well over 3 years. My case was complicated after relocations of both my ex and myself . Keersten performs her best in negotiating and working hard to resolve issues. She is at her best during mediations. She knows the law and is able to uses her knowledge to never leave a stone unturned.

Excellent in helping me through a difficult time with a formidable wife. Such a complicated case with many properties, kids and complications. She knows the law like no other and easily cuts through it. I recommend Keersten to those having a tough time. The best I've seen.

Outstanding lawyer and caring person
I cannot recommend Keersten highly enough. She is extremely experienced and knowledgeable. I am an attorney. It is difficult being a client and I have a broader perspective since I can evaluate a lawyer from both being a lawyer and a client. Keersten sets the bar really high for all of us and she will do a great job for you.

Fair, Competent and a Realist - I Recommend Keersten Martinez
I’ve hired Keersten for almost a year now to handle my divorce. She is very proficient, efficient, exacting and prompt. I’ve never had any trouble getting a hold of her or getting an update on my case. I am impressed with her quick wit and knowledge of the law. Keersten is a realist and gives me an accurate picture of what is happening in my divorce and what I can expect at the various stages. While she does everything to keep a case from needing to go to trial court, she also does everything to make sure her client isn’t being wronged or taken advantage of, by the opposing party. I believe she always has my best interests in mind. For example, in my case, she made sure to seek an imputation my former spouse’s income, when it became apparent she wasn’t going to work, in a possible attempt for more alimony or child support. Keersten is a strong believer of fairness and Fathers rights as well. She secured a 50/50 timesharing and parenting arrangement in my divorce, thus preserving my rights as a father and giving me the opportunity to be the best dad I can. Keersten is very professional and has excellent working relationships with the other family law attorneys in Central Florida. She came highly recommended by a colleague at work. I understand she is board certified in Family Law, which is a credential that less than 5% of family law attorneys have. You won’t see a billboard or advertisement for Keersten. She doesn’t need that. She is a very sought-after lawyer, based on her reputation and the excellent work she’s done for 20 years. Sincerely, Ed. Orlando, Florida.

Keersten Heskin Martinez is a SUPERB Family Law attorney. She knows the law and sets realistic expectations.
Keersten Heskin Martinez is the best Family Law attorney and I highly recommend her services. Over the years, I have had experience with numerous attorneys. Keersten is outstanding because she is very knowledgeable, an excellent communicator, very responsive, and she sets clear expectations. Keersten negotiated an important part of our settlement over the phone, with the opposing counsel, and accomplished more in a few days than another attorney accomplished in over a year. If you have Family Law questions, you owe it to yourself to consult with Keersten. She genuinely cares and she is extremely professional. I can't say enough positive comments about her. She is truly special. Keersten is a great advocate.
