She joined the Knudsen Law Firm in 1986 and her primary areas of practice are workers’ compensation, environmental law and general trial practice. She is a member of the Lincoln and Nebraska State Bar Associations, the NSBA Workers’ Compensation Section and Natural Resources and Environmental Law Section.


Shirley was born in Sargent, Nebraska, and graduated cum laude from Kearney State College in 1980 with a degree in journalism. She was a member of the Society of Collegiate Journalists and was voted “most promising reporter” on the student newspaper.


Shirley received her J.D. degree with distinction from the University of Nebraska College of Law in 1984.
