About me

Attorney-Owner of Lapin Law Offices. I represent injured, abused and disabled clients with caring, passion and dedication throughout Nebraska. I have spent my entire legal career representing injured people, not insurance companies or at-fault individuals or companies. I am very active in many legal and non-legal organizations and causes.

Represent clients involved: motor vehicle accidents; workers’ compensation; wrongful death; dog bites; traumatic brain and spinal cord injuries; uninsured and underinsured claims; falls on property; medical malpractice; other personal injury cases; Social Security Disability (SSDI and SSI) claims; and claims involving the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA), Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) and Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA).
