Maggie M. Nestheide


From the very beginning of my career, I have chosen to exclusively practice in the area of family law. I am passionate about guiding people through this complex process and assisting them through my knowledge and expertise in making difficult decisions. I represent clients in all aspects of family law, including dissolutions, divorce, child custody, grandparents’ rights, prenuptial agreements and support. I am licensed in Ohio and Kentucky. My Ohio practice is limited to Hamilton, Clermont, Warren and Butler counties. In Kentucky, I practice in Campbell, Boone and Kenton counties.


I strive to be a calm and knowledgeable advisor to my clients. Family law matters can often be an extremely emotional and draining process. It is essential for clients to have an informed advisor who can help them evaluate information when their emotions have taken over. My goal is to ensure that my clients are fully informed regarding each and every option available to them, including the potential benefits and detriments of their choice. At the end of the day, the decisions are always up to the client. However, it is my duty to ensure they have all the information necessary to make the choice that is right for them and their family.


I strongly believe that in most cases, the best results are reached through out of court resolution. Clients and their families are generally much better served by agreements they draft themselves, through the assistance of their attorneys. Negotiated settlements can be much more creative, and tailor fit to the specific needs of the parties. However, I recognize that out of court settlement is not always possible, for one reason or another. In such cases, I utilize my advocacy and litigation skills to strive for the best possible outcome.


My proudest achievement in each case is guiding clients through an extremely difficult time by providing legal counsel and support and the reward is seeing a client at the end of that process, feeling stronger and more secure in their future.
