About me

With offices in Omaha & Lincoln, we've helped thousands of Nebraskans who were injured in car crashes, at work, and in many other ways, even the playing field against insurance companies and their lawyers.  In 2010 we collected one of the largest injury settlements in Nebraska history for a worker involved in an industrial injury.  We've helped a number of families with the tragedy of wrongful death, and helped many others injured by drunk drivers and other life altering results from car crashes.  Our clients include injured Law Enforcement Officers from 20 different departments throughout Nebraska, including State Patrol, Police & Sheriff's Offices along with ATF & TSA.  My tie to Law Enforcement is that I was a Police Office in New York City.


 


My Police Career with NYPD lasted 3 years 11 months and six days before I was retired on a disability pension due to line of duty injuries from a riot in Central Park in the summer of 1983.  I was recognized by NYPD on 7 occasions for my actions as a Police Officer and also awarded a Citation by the City Council.  After the Police Academy, I was assigned to Neighborhood Stabilization Unit 18 in Queens, the 107th Precinct, Tactical Patrol Unit, Brooklyn North Task Force and Patrol Borough Brooklyn North.   I'm a member of the Fraternal Order of Police and have been invited to speak at the Nebraska Conference about work and traffic injuries to Police.   I'm still active in some NYPD activities including the Retirees Mobilization Program. (In case NYC is attacked again, I can step in and help) Police Officers Providing Peer Assistance (I'm trained to help retirees on the hotline assess and get help with problems from, drinking, marital or suicide)  In addition to those service groups, I’ve been actively participating in MADD Nebraska functions and events since 2005.  I’ve been invited to and spoken  at state and regional Fraternal Order of Police conferences throughout Nebraska.
