My practice is unique because I carefully select the cases I take and handle client contact myself. If you hire me, you will not be "staffed out" to a paralegal or secretary. I do my best to answer all calls and emails within 24 hours. I am always happy to consult on a case with a potential client, so please do not hesitate to call.

I worked at the Douglas County Public Defender's office for 2 years as a law clerk and after passing the Nebraska Bar opened my own firm in downtown Omaha right across from the Douglas County Courthouse.
If you file a lawsuit and lose the case, you can appeal the decision to the next highest court, which is called the appellate court. Appellate lawyers often specialize in arguing appeals; that is, they specialize in arguing why the decision of the lower court was wrong (or why it was right, for the party that won). Appellate attorneys specialize in appeals because they understand the specific and detailed rules that must be followed. It is possible to lose an appeal on technicalities, even when the law is on your side. If you want to appeal the outcome of the trial court, or if you need to argue against another person's appeal, you should work with an appellate attorney.
