MISSION: IMPROVING THE WELL BEING OF NEEDLESSLY INJURED NEBRASKANS. FREE CONSULT.

My son, Sean and I practice together. He's 43 years old. I am considerably older. So if you are considering our firm, know that you get two lawyers in one for your money. You get the younger and smarter partner, Sean. He's become quit experienced at such a youthful age. Sean is experienced in varied legal situations: Complex work comp matters that necessitate 3rd party actions; and multifaceted medical and legal malpractice litigation - to name a few. You also get the old guy with the wisdom that come from decades of representing literally thousands of clients over the years. I can say thousands with confidence thinking back to just one case in which I represented 106 clients.

We at Rensch & Rensch work as a team laboring only for the benefit and well-being of our clients. We employ a talented staff of 4 paralegals to help make it all possible. Our paralegals, Nate, Lisa, Laci and Joyce enjoy a comfortable and easily accessible space with Sean and I, in the John D. Wear Building, located in the middle of Omaha at 7602 Pacific Street. We've been at this location for the last 10 years or so.  Because of Covid-19, we have the ability to and do work remotely - depending on the circumstances.

I am a lifelong resident of Omaha. I graduated from Prep high school and attended NU on an athletic scholarship. I graduated from UNL in 1974, and Creighton Law School in 1977. I am married to my high school sweetheart, Connie. We raised our five children here, living in the Elmwood Park, Loveland/Westside and Eagle Run neighborhoods. All our kids were educated in Omaha's Catholic and public schools through high school. All were encouraged to and did attend college and/or beyond and are now successful contributing members to their communities.

We at Rensch & Rensch look forward - each and every day, to helping our clients achieve the best possible outcomes. We strive for excellence in service to each of our clients. Just as a high tide raises all ships, it is our hope that by bringing the case we work on today to a successful conclusion, benefits will flow to those clients who follow. I've seen this process work over the years. We've built a foundation that will help serve our future clients.

Highly recommended
I hired Mr. Rensch because the reviews online were all positive, and I’m glad I did. I was in a car accident where I was hit from behind, and experienced pain and injury. Mr. Rensch and Laci, Mr Rensch’s paralegal, are excellent at what they do, and are highly recommend. Thank you Mr. Rensch and Laci!

Very satisfied
Falling warehouse product came down hard directly on my head knocking me out and injuring my spine. It was serious. My foot started dragging. I did not know what to do. I had a good job that paid me good money. Surgery helped. But nothing could be done to get me back to work. A fellow employee told me to call Richard Rensch. I thank my lucky stars I was referred to Rensch and Rensch Law. Richard and his paralegal Laci worked the case methodically. They knew each step to take. They told me what to expect - and it happened. They kept me advised on every turn. They won for me and my family everything I could hope for - and more. The Rensch firm treated me and mine like family and for that we will be forever grateful and think of them as family. Sadly, someday a good friend of mine or a family member will need help like I did. I will not hesitate to send them directly to Richard or his son, Sean. Thank you so much Laci and Richard Rensch for all you did for us.

Mr Rensch and his assistant Melanie were very very helpful on my case. Their response was very quick and every little singles things, they took care of it. I 've got very satisfying compensation and I don't think other lawyers would work this hard on this little case like mine. I really appreciate to both Rensch and Melanie!

DOG BITE
Rensch and Rensch Law was the best choice I could have made for my young daughter who was horribly mauled by a chained dog. Richard Rensch immediately filed suit on our behalf and soon wonderful things began to happen. Mr. Rensch could not take the facial dog bite scars away from my baby's face- but he quickly laid the groundwork to ensure the dog owner and his insurance company would be forced to account for the wrongs the dog owner committed against my beautiful daughter. Mr. Rensch settled the matter in such a way that will allow my daughter to recieve restitution for decades into the future. She will be able to attend college and begin her adult life with financial security. Thank you Mr. Rensch and Rensch and Rensch Law.

Great Lawyer
Dick was a great help in working through complications of a motorcycle accident. He always kept us informed on the case and had us stop by his office whenever we had questions. Very, very happy he handled our case. Was a comfort to have a guy that rode motorcycles handle our case. He understood a biker's point of view. Great Lawyer.

Helpful, Prompt, Smart
Our business recently relied on Rensch and Rensch Law to help navigate through some legal issues which were unexpected. Dick and Sean Rensch were extremely professional and give us timely advice and guidance. They responded promptly, educating us about our options along the way. They were very approachable, friendly and helpful. Because this was a situation we had never encountered, their experience helped lead us in the right direction with a very positive outcome.

I have personally benefited from Dick’s legal advice and counsel for over 40 years in many different situations. His understanding and application of the law has consistently demonstrated sound reasoning, and objectivity along with an acute sense of fairness. He is greatly respected among his peers, colleagues, and friends as a seasoned leader with the highest caliber of professional skills and legal instincts.

Motorcycle Accident
I was in a motorcycle accident in 2012. I was referred to Rensch & Rensch from a friend. I am so happy I did. The whole team took care of the details. They reduced my medical bills from 90k to 25k. The insurance company ended up paying the full coverage amount without having to go to court. I will use this firm again if needed. Thank you for everything!

Underinsured auto vs motorcycle
I was hit on my Harley by a car on my way to work. I was not at fault. The auto owner had the state minimums. I needed to use my own policy for the underinsured due to multiple extensive injuries. However my carrier did not want to do the right thing at first. After doing lots of research on local attorneys I chose the Rench's. I chose them because they were real with us, Dick rides a motorcycle so he can relate to a fellow rider and most importantly - he recommended I settle my bike on my own with the other carrier so that I can keep the funds for that myself. They could have very well have included that in the case and been paid for that as well. This recommendation got ME more $ and a new bike faster. The Rensch's went to work and always kept me in the loop of what was going on case wise. I am a hands on type of person and they had ZERO problems answering multiple emails in a days time answering questions regarding my case. If I left a message or email I always heard back that same day. ALWAYS! When the bills came they contacted the right people and kept them at bay until the case was done. I never heard from them again or received another medical bill. I referred the Rensch's to a friend who was hit on his cycle as well. They did great for him too. After the battle with the insurance company Dick and Sean were ready to go to trial on my case but the carrier ended up offering a much better settlement than their first offer, to the tune 3x more or so. I would hire these guys in a second no questions asked. These are down to earth great people. Not your typical attorneys. They do what's best for you, not their paycheck. I can not thank Sean and Dick enough. They forever changed our lives. Rench's if you read this - again, thank you for all you did for us. You are the best. Aaron T.

Dick Rensch, Attorney.
Mr Rensch did an outstanding job for my family as an attorney for two auto accidents that involved personal injury and property. All my damages were covered thanks to Mr Rensch. I could not be happier with Mr Rensch. Mr Rensch dealt with insurance companies, attorneys and clearly was the ultimate expert in handling all aspects of resolving both of these car wrecks. One of the auto accident was particularly stressful to me involving my wife and son until Mr Rensch was our advocate. Without reservation I recommend Mr Rensch for anyone searching or in need of a aggressive and competent Attorney. Since that time, I sent a niece for his help after she was broadsided by someone running a red light suffering a head injury. Mr Rensch fought for her to receive the correct medical care, car replacement and personal damages. She is now a healthy young mother thanks in large part to Mr Rensch.

Auto accident
Mr. Rensch went to extra measures to make sure I was always up to date with latest info. regarding payments and conditions from the insurance company. Emails were sent and I was kept quite in the loop as well, he also made sure I was understanding the process and how the timing of each answer would effect or not effect the outcome. He is highly recommended by myself.
