Litigation

Our litigation practice encompasses virtually every area of civil litigation. We regularly appear in Nebraska and Iowa state and federal courts at both the trial and appellate levels. We also represent clients in administrative proceedings before local, state, and federal governmental agencies. We strive to provide practical and results-oriented legal services.

Our lawyers have handled hundreds of trials, both jury and non-jury, in state and federal courts. However, we also recognize that in some cases a trial in a court of law may be the least favorable outcome for all parties involved. In those cases we work diligently to resolve matters in a fair and cost-effective manner and avoid the uncertainties and expense involved in a trial. We accomplish this through a combination of thorough case preparation, a realistic analysis of the law and the facts, and the use of various means of alternative dispute resolution.
