At Amicus Law & Mediation we have a client centred approach – meaning that we offer the kind of services that we would want if we needed a lawyer. We get that a lot of people are nervous around lawyers so among other things, in order to put our clients at ease, we will:
- Be approachable in our mannerisms;
- Speak in plain language instead of attempting to impress with unnecessary legal jargon or unnecessary use of latin;
- Help clients get their story out by asking the relevant questions;
- Provide the legal advice in the manner that works best for our clients (i.e., in person or if the client prefers visual presentation, we can provide the advice in writing);
- Make our expectations of clients clear from the beginning of the file and make clear what clients can expect from us;
Our areas of practice can be found on our services page.
Kelly A. Driscoll, B.B.A., LL.B.
- Law Society of New Brunswick
- Canadian Bar Association
Born and raised in Miramichi, New Brunswick, Kelly initially made her way to the Fredericton/Oromocto area when she attended the University of New Brunswick for both her B.B.A. and LL.B. She was called to the bar in June 2009 and opened her own law practice in September 2009.
A proponent of access to justice, Kelly volunteers her time with the Fredericton Legal Advice Clinic as well as the Oromocto Legal Clinic.
Her unreasonably intense work ethic is balanced by her whimsical sense of humour and a very patient husband who reports that in the rare moments when she is not working, Kelly can usually be found doting on one of her cats or attempting to sneak back into her office (...usually with a cat).
Kelly's primary areas of practice include:
- Family Law;
- Real Estate;
- Wills & Estates; and
Kelly can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org .

Stacey Ackerson Baxter
Originally from Fredericton, Stacey Ackerson Baxter, grew up in PEI and Campbellton, NB before venturing off to explore various parts of Canada.
Stacey has lived in five different Provinces and has worked as a legal assistant in four of them. Had third graders been allowed to work as legal assistants in PEI at the time, Stacey may have been five for five.
Stacey has extensive previous experience in serving the military community as both a legal assistant and as a former Brookfield Advisor, thus making her the perfect fit for us.
Stacey came home to NB and joined our firm on September 1, 2017. She has discovered a love of real estate that can only be described as perverse. When not busying herself with real estate, she can be seen attempting to herd the office cats away from her desk.
