Biography


I practice primarily in the areas of real estate law, probate, estate planning , guardianship, conservatorship and debt collection. I am conveniently located in mid-town near the court houses in Omaha.

I am a 1995 graduate of Creighton Law School, Cum Laude, and have been in solo practice most of the time since, working primarily in the state courts in Omaha and Sarpy County, and doing appellate work at the Nebraska Supreme Court and Court of Appeals.

I previously served in the United States Marine Corps and managed computer facilities for McDonnell Douglas, prior to my legal career.

I am always looking forward to meeting new clients and finding new challenges in the legal profession.

Legal Answers
8 Questions Answered
Q. If the executor of the will refuses to provide it and keeps all the estate proceeds, what can be done legally?
A: There's not enough information here to provide an exact answer. What can be done depends on what assets would pass under the grandparent's Wills, how long ago they died, the values of the real estate and the personal property, and other factors as well. The first thing your mother needs to do is actually meet in person with an attorney for a formal interview about the facts regarding the grandparents' estates to determine what, if anything, can be done now.f Any other response in an online forum like this would probably just be speculation.
Q. My mom is deceased I am executer of her will how do I file the will with the state of nebraska so I can sell her house
A: In some cases, a probate case has to be filed in court but not in all cases. You should consult an attorney in person, who works in probate, or in real estate, or both, for guidance. The attorney should review the Will, the relevant real estate records, and any other relevant info before opining on exactly what will be needed.
Q. My elderly mom wants to transfer her paid in full home in NE to me, what is needed?
A: Your mother should consult an elder planning attorney first. Transferring her home may result in disqualification for Medicaid or have other unforeseen results.
