About James

Learn James’s areas of practice.

I am a 1995 graduate of Creghton Law School, with honors.  I have been in private practice for twenty years, with a concentration on real estate, probate, estate planning and debt collection matters.


mmediately prior to my legal career I spent nine years managing computer facilities for McDonnell Douglas in Long Beach, California and Huntington Beach, California, where I also completed my undergraduate work at the University of San Francisco.


Before working at MDC, I was a United States Marine, guarding embassies and consulates in Port Au Prince, Haiti, and Jerusalem, Israel as part of the elite Marine Security Guard Batallion.  In Israel, I was part of the security teams for Jimmy Carter and George Schultz.  


I frequently volunteer in the Omaha community.

Mr. Polack was hired to help with a tenant issue. Mr. Polack was quick and efficient with the entire case. He was thorough and most of all he was patient in getting the facts. I appreciated the personal way he dealt with me and in such a professional manor. I would not hesitate to seek his assistance again. Case closed.
