Omaha attorney Brad Marsicek came to Goosmann Law Firm with a distinguished and diverse background of transactional and litigation legal experience that allows him to be one of the go-to Nebraska and Iowa divorce, child custody, and litigation attorneys in the Omaha area.

Brad’s legal experience spans beyond divorce/custody litigation into general civil litigation, real estate, insurance law, and alternative-dispute resolution/mediation.

Brad brings honest advice and a straightforward approach to each case. He ensures that each client’s case starts with an in-depth discussion of the client’s goals and needs, which allows him to develop the best legal plan and strategy to meet the case objectives. Throughout the progression of each case, Brad consistently keeps his clients updated with the case status and he is always evaluating the case strategy as developments occur during the litigation process. Brad firmly believes that his clients should always have direct access to their attorney and up-to-date information on their case. Brad prides himself on maintaining this practice model.

Over the past 15 years Brad has helped business owners and professionals in legal matters, with a special focus on representing those clients seeking to preserve their parental rights or assets in divorce. He understands that his clients have worked hard to build their family, career, and/or businesses and he works diligently to protect what his clients have built so that their outcome is equitable and fair once their case is final.

Brad has an intricate understanding of the litigation process and knowledge of the local judges. He brings a business acumen and a better understanding of financial affairs of higher income clients that benefits all his clients going through the divorce process.
Brad’s mediation practice utilizes his straight-forward approach and his experience as a family law litigator to provide a neutral, unbiased, and comprehensive approach to mediation. Brad’s goal in mediation is always to help people reach a less expensive and mutually beneficial agreement outside of court. By reaching agreements outside of court, Brad can help mediation clients craft an agreement that meets both party’s needs, as opposed to having a Court order imposed on them that often meets no one’s needs. The resulting mediated agreements tend to be more durable, lead to less animosity between ex-spouses, and in turn, lead to less future litigation than the alternative Court-drafted parenting plans and agreements.

Brad’s mediation services include parenting plans in divorce and child custody cases and financial mediations for the more complex cases. He also provides collaborative divorce services by facilitating divorce agreements and drafting of necessary paperwork that reflects a jointly negotiated agreement between spouses outside of the courtroom.

Prior to joining Goosmann Law Firm, Brad was the lead litigator for a national-based law firm, and he has handled hundreds of contested divorce and custody cases across Nebraska and Iowa. Brad has extensive trial experience, having litigated 40+ domestic bench trials and has defended and advocated for clients through hundreds of contested hearings. He was elected by his peers as a Super Lawyers Rising Star in 2017 and 2020. He is a graduate of the prestigious ABA/NITA (National Institute for Trial Advocacy) Family Law Advocacy Course in Boulder, Colorado and the Nebraska Mediation Association Basic and Family Law Mediation Courses.

Whether you are looking to have to an amicable resolution in a divorce mediation or seeking justice in your civil litigation matter, Brad Marsicek is ready to be the vigilant ally at your side.

Excellent Divorce Attorney for Men
Brad is very responsive to my needs, he deliveries high quality work, and he is very detailed-oriented. The man knows divorce law, and he always knew what to do next, though the case had several complications The other attorney was very aggressive and adversarial, however, after a “two-day trial”, we received a favorable ruling from the judge.

Straight Forward and Responsive
I would recommend Mr. Marsicek to anyone. He is very thorough and responsive. He answered my emails and calls in a very reasonably short period. He is very direct and honest with you. During this difficult time, I needed the honest truths and facts. I did not need things sugar coated. I am sure every cause has it nuisances, I believe he navigated my case well and I received a good outcome with my kids and everything else.

Great Attorney! Straight forward, honest!
Over the 16mo course of my custody case (two of which were with another attorney before Mr Marsicek) there were many human errors made by myself. I’ll admit that I wasn’t the “model client”. We also can not control the opposing party and what her/attorney do. Luckily I had Bradley Marsicek as my attorney who kept it honest and upfront. I don’t like things sugar coated, but blunt and straight forward. I’ve read a lot of comments about how expensive Cordell and Cordell are, well I can honestly say, attorneys in Hawaii charge in upwards of $800/hr. Anyone who’s anyone doesn’t like paying for services; your car for example, you need it fixed, but complain about the cost. If I just listened to my attorney, things may have been cheaper! Mr Marsicek gave me some of the most important advice that any divorced/father needs to hear! I must say that Cordell & Cordell are extremely lucky to have snagged Bradley Marsicek. I’d highly recommend! YOU THE MAN BRAD!

Excellent Attorney
I wasted a lot of time and money on 2 very incapable attorneys prior to retaining Mr. Marsicek. The result was that i had agreed to a bad deal, based on bad advice. My case was ‘behind the 8 ball’ when i met Brad. He was honest in telling me there were some major hurdles to jump to fix what had been done. He gave me realistic expectations instead of promising things he couldn’t deliver, as some might. He was extremely easy to get a hold of. I would have a randome question on a Sat morning, expecting a response by the end of day Monday, and i had an answer within the hour. I REALLY APPRECIATED that. I hope that i never need his services again (nothing personal Brad) but rest assured I will absolutely hire him again if i need him. Thanks for your hard work and honesty Dan L

A straight shooter who goes the extra mile.
I am quite satisfied with my experience(s) with my lawyer, Bradley Marsicek. He is a straight shooter! He never sugar coated information, nor did he ever stroke my ego with best case scenarios. He prepared me for the worse, maintained a solid strategy, and adjusted on the fly quickly to stay ahead of any issues as they arose. His memory is impressive; he remembered key issues and details regarding my cases even though they were years apart. He even went the extra mile for me by meeting with me on a Sunday!!! Bradley payed attention to my communication preferences and thus our correspondences were prompt and concise. You get what you pay for, and I gotten the best. I am very satisfied with my experience.

Best attorney...hands down!!
Best attorney I could of asked for! I worked with Brad for over a year and a half and he could recall information from some of our first conversations. I feel Brad went above and beyond the normal attorney. He would take the time to listen and understand each situation I had and provide his input to not only guide me but teach me as we went through this process. This was a very difficult time in my life and there were several times I was unsure of things and not confident in what I was doing. Brad was always right there to reassure I was doing the right thing and instill the confidence back in me. Brad was very detail oriented, and knew when to be aggressive and when to let things play out. I had to involve family and friends and Brad took the time to explain everything and make them feel as comfortable as they could be. Towards the end of the case Brad worked extremely hard and didn't sleep until he got the results I deserved. I would highly recommend Brad to any person that is looking to get results!!

Someone to have in your corner.
Bradley was instrumental in defending me. He also was a wealth of knowledge and could respond to questions that I had in a very timely manner. Bradley was also quick to calm me down and help put things in perspective when I felt like the ship was sinking. I have reccomended Bradley and will continue to do so. Bradley understands the challenges that men are faced with in the current legal system and will challenge and defend against anything deemed unfair or rediculous

Regarding Bradley Marsicek:
Like a lot of people, I didn’t like lawyers very much. The attorneys in my prior experience all seemed to fit into the stereotypical mold---sleazy, self-worshipping opportunists who charged maximum fees for minimal effort and marginal results on the best of days. Mr. Bradley Marsicek has forever slain that stereotype in the mind of this very satisfied client. From the very first meeting with Mr. Marsicek, I knew that this was going to be a different kind of experience. I was a shaken wreck at that opening meeting, in an absolutely terrified panic that my six-year-old daughter and I were going to be torn apart. Bradley calmed me down and opened my eyes and mind with targeted, intelligent questions, reassurances made without implausible promises, effective listening and, in response to my description of the situation, a clear strategy that made sense and fit me personally. Throughout the months of preparation his advice and guidance not only made strategic sense but also felt “right” from an ethical standpoint. I did not have to compromise my personal sense of integrity. By leading our case down the high road, Bradley Marsicek won a victory far superior to what I had offered during mediation. In the process of achieving that victory he earned the respect of the judge, the opposing counsel and the witnesses from both sides. Mr. Bradley Marsicek has earned my deepest respect and gratitude. My daughter and I are together five days one week, two days the next week, alternating. I’ve purchased a home across the street from her elementary school, and on mornings that we’re together I walk over to the playground with her for fifteen minutes of sheer paternal joy. She goes into the school laughing and happy. Even though all of my legal fees are paid, I will forever be deeply indebted to Brad for his diligence, instinct and damn hard work on my behalf. Cordell and Cordell are very fortunate to have this brilliant attorney and fine human being on their team. James G. Peterson Oakland, Iowa

Inexperienced in defending father's rights
I selected C&C for my attorneys based on their ads. Big mistake. As a whole, they are inexperienced in handling anything but the simplest of cases. I initially spoke with a senior attorney and then they did the bait-and-switch with Brad Marsicek. Mr. Marsicek was ill prepared on court-day, allowed the other side to walk all over him, and he lost my custody rights. Instead of admitting his errors, he blamed the judge and later me. Stay away from Cordell & Cordell.

Response from Bradley Marsicek October 17, 2022
At the time the review was left, there had not been an adverse ruling from a Court (and there still has not been a ruling to this day) where I have ever represented a client and the client lost his "custody rights". It is unclear based on the review whether this is a client review. Nonetheless, each custody and divorce case is unique and poses their own challenges, both factual and financial. My track record, experience, and training in handling domestic matters speaks for itself.
