Choose An Experienced Ramsey County Divorce Law And Mediation Attorney
I am attorney Mike Black, and I have more than 30 years of experience helping individuals and families navigate the divorce process. I have been a divorce and family law mediator since 1996, wherein my role is to remain neutral while helping guide both parties to an amicable agreement. The issues we discuss include:
- Property division
- Spousal support and maintenance
- Child support
- Child custody
- Parenting time and visitation
No one knows your family as well as you. Judges do not have enough time to listen to every nuance and dimension regarding your marriage and your children. By choosing to mediate your divorce, you are in charge of making decisions, not a judge, and you will be able to agree on outcomes that no judge can provide. Mediation also costs less and often takes less time.
I have been selected for inclusion in the list of Minnesota Super Lawyers in family law and mediation from 2006 through 2009, and I have been AV Preeminent peer review-rated* through Martindale-Hubbell, its highest rating. I was also selected by my peers for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America 2012 in family law
I also provide arbitration services, in which I act as a kind of private judge to make binding decisions for people who cannot resolve matters on their own and want to avoid the court process.

My job is to help individuals exchange information, make decisions and find solutions. My approach to mediation is straightforward and results-based. I am mindful of how draining these discussions can be, so I work efficiently on each case. Each party is encouraged to retain his or her own, independent legal counsel, who can assist them in navigating through the process and in drafting the final legal documents.
