I am a graduate of the University of Nebraska, holding a B.A. in Political Science and a J.D. from the Law College. I have been practicing law in Lincoln, Nebraska continuously since 1974. I have extensive experience in advising families and business in the areas of wills and trusts, real estate, corporations, limited liability companies and small businesses. I also have extensive experience negotiating and drafting software license agreements, beginning in 1981 for a local software company. My information technology experience is broad-ranging. During my career, I have represented small companies ranging from one person owners to public companies with many owners. My experience includes real estate sales transactions, both residential and commercial, purchase and sale of business, large and small and estates and probate.
My family includes my wife of almost 48 years, two sons and their wives, three grandchildren and two dogs. I have been active in the Lincoln Community and have served on the Board of Directors of the Lincoln Community Foundation and Lincoln Lancaster Child Guidance Center. I am currently a member of the Finance Committee of the University of Nebraska Foundation. I serve on two section executive committees of the Nebraska Bar Association, and am a contributor to its publication, The Nebraska Lawyer. I am a Fellow in the American College of Trust & Estates Counsel, a member of the Lincoln Estate Planning Counsel and a founding member of the Lincoln Probate Discussion Group. I teach a course in law office management as an adjunct professor at the University of Nebraska Law College, and have mentored young lawyers just starting in the practice of law. I enjoy my family time, occasional golf, travel, puttering around the house and reading. Since I installed a Roku devise on our home television, I, together with my wife, have added viewing (and, binge watching) British mystery television series to our leisure time activities.
