    Best Criminal Defense Lawyer Available

    From the first moment I called Tom to help on my case he was very responsive, knowledgeable, confident, respectful, and communicated in a very effective manner. If I needed to get a hold of Tom, I didn't need to leave a message with his receptionist and hope and pray that I would receive a call back, he answered the phone directly. As a professional communicator, I realized and appreciated Tom's ability to communicate effectively. He kept me in the know on the maze of the legal process, his next steps and any potential hurdles that we may have come across. He was proactive in his communication instead of being reactive to my every request. I do ask many questions and Tom was responsive to my numerous emails almost on a daily basis. I learned after working with Tom for a couple of months that he will go above and beyond, if that is what your situation calls for. He will not fill your mind with hopeless promises, but he sticks to the facts as anyone who has been in a similar situation can attest that the facts and hard evidence are the only things that matters in criminal cases. If you are someone who has been shockingly thrown into this criminal system, then your future is dependent on having the best criminal defense lawyer available. I had a lawyer prior to my meeting Tom, but I quickly realized that having the best criminal defense lawyer on your side will make you sink or swim and I am not the type of person that sinks in any situation that I am thrown into. If you are concerned about your future, then the first step in the entire process is hiring Tom Petersen to defend you. There is no doubt about it, if I am ever accused of anything in the future, I will be sure to hire Tom as he was able to discuss the facts with the prosecutor before I ever had to step foot in a court room and get my entire situation dismissed. There is no doubt in my mind that I would not be where I am today if I had not had Tom in my corner. Do not for a second gamble with your future, hire Tom to help guide you through this trying time in your life.

    Great attorney

    Tom recently represented me in a case. He was very knowledgeable regarding state law, was responsive to my inquiries, had innovative solutions to the case, and ultimately was successful in obtaining a judgment that I was happy with. His professionalism, dedication, and tenacity are very well established and I would most certainly recommend his services to others dealing with a similar situation.

    Amazing Attorney

    After searching the internet, I called Tom Petersen from out of state when I found out my child was in a Nebraska jail. Needless to say I was a little unnerved. He reassured me that he would do all he could in my absence. I was amazed by his prompt and efficient course of action, including keeping me informed by phone, text, or email as matters progressed. I found Mr. Petersen to be exceptionally professional, yet kind and caring. Having worked at a general practice law firm for over 35 years I can truly say that Tom Petersen went above and beyond, is one of the best, and I feel blessed to have found him.

    Honest and down to earth lawyer

    I will start by saying Tom is a great lawyer inside and outside of the court room. After contacting many dui lawyers in the Omaha area Tom was the only one to get back with me and get the ball rolling without the hassle of me having to call over and over again. From start to finish of my case he was able to provide very successful results and always kept me informed. He is by far a very knowledgeable lawyer who cares about the best interests of his clients. I would recommend him to any of my friends or family needing an attorney. Thanks again Tom for all your hard work keep it up!

    Just what I needed

    Tom was able to help me get through the legal process in my first time dealing with it. He was very knowledgeable and most important to me he was personable. He took the time to explain everything to me and made me feel at ease about my entire case. I knew that after my first consultation with him that he was someone that would defend me without judging me and would do everything he could to have my case in a favorable outcome for me. I would absolutely recommend to anyone that needed any legal advice.

    Fantastic lawyer! Would recommend!

    Tom Petersen was great at educating me about my case and steering me through the process.

    Without him I shudder to think what might have happened.

    I will recommend Mr. Petersen to anyone that needs legal council.

    Excellent Work

    Tom did an amazing job of working with the prosecutor to get me an incredible turnout in my case. When all was said and done he'd represented me in such a way that the judge handed down a decision that was better than we'd anticipated and cheaper than the agreed upon amount worked out beforehand. Tom kept me informed and was a great comfort to my nerves in the courtroom. Highly recommended if you need representation. God willing I'll never again need representation but I wont hesitate to call on Tom should I find myself in a similar situation.

    Tom did a great job for me!

    Tom's ability to obtain favorable plea deals gives him 5 stars in my book. I was recently pulled over and ticketed for speeding and driving with no insurance. He was able to negotiate the points against my license and get the no insurance charges dropped. The County Prosecutor said I was subject to $1000 fine or up to 6 months in jail. I walked away with a minimal fine, no points against my license, and no jail time. In addition, he saved me thousands of dollars because my insurance premiums would have skyrocketed had points been counted against me!

    Exceptional DUI Lawyer.

    I contacted Petersen Law to handle a DUI case that I got while visiting Omaha. Mr. Petersen met with me the next day and I immediately got a sense that he was very confident and informative. He explained the Nebraska DUI penalties in detail as well as how the DMV case interacts with the court case. He spent a lot of time explaining unfamiliar laws to me and was very patient.

    Even though my test result was .16, he was able to negotiate the case down to a reckless driving and I paid a $500 fine. I never even had to return to Omaha to appear in Court.

    This lawyer is knowledgeable, efficient and got the job done exceeding my expectations. Highly recommended.
