Family Criminal Case, Review of State Legal Documents and Consultation
Justin is a very well rounded lawyer. Professionalism with a personal touch added to what he does. I have used Mr. Cook's services on more than one legal issue. Ranging from a criminal case, legal documentation review and even just consultation for my own understanding of legal documents that I was involved in.

The best in Nebraska
Justin Cook-Lincoln Law LLC is by far the best attorney in Nebraska and I would hire him over any top attorney in any major city in this country. The entire firm is friendly, kind, helpful. Justin is an exceptional attorney, with not only amazing litigation skills, be he is funny and kind and cares about his clients in a very real and personal way. We have used Justin for criminal defense, custody, and civil matters and we have been very happy with the outcome. We have used other law firms in Nebraska and have felt like a number and that the follow up and communication was non-existent. We have never felt like that with Lincoln Law, not once. We have and continue to recommend Justin without hesitation to our friends and family because we know without a doubt that he will make a positive difference for them. We know that he will work tirelessly on their behalf. We feel very lucky to have found Justin and Lincoln Law LLC.
