Kristin Contryman, founder and owner of Contryman Law and Mediation, LLC


Born and raised in Omaha, NE, Kristin has a special appreciation and love for this city and the people in it. Kristin attended Creighton University for her undergraduate studies and earned her Bachelor of Science in Social Work in 2005. Following her undergraduate studies, she wanted to be able to provide more assistance to the individuals she worked with as a social worker and decided a career in law was the way to do this.  Kristin continued her education at Creighton University School of Law where she earned her law degree in 2009. While in law school, Kristin never lost her passion for social work and helping others.  She decided to go one step further and completed her graduate degree at Creighton University, earning a Master of Science in Negotiation and Dispute Resolution in 2011. 

Kristin started her legal career as an Associate Attorney for another family law firm in Omaha. Through her work, she learned many invaluable skills and developed the confidence to go out on her own. With that, Contryman Law and Mediation, LLC opened its doors in October 2013. Kristin is an experienced attorney in the areas of juvenile law, family law, collaborative divorce and mediation. She is a certified mediator through Nebraska’s Office of Dispute Resolution and is a collaboratively trained attorney. Her education and experience have provided her with the skills needed to assist clients in working towards resolution without the sometimes scary and unpredictable nature of the courtroom. What sets Kristin apart from other family law attorneys, is that she really listens to her clients and assists them in pinpointing their needs and interests while giving them valuable advice on how the law and legal system will impact their situation. Her experience has allowed her to effectively represent her clients and assist them through the legal process toward a successful resolution.
