I would highly recommend Chris Pomerleau for a family lawyer. He was very detailed on explaining every step of the way. He always kept me informed. There are no words that can describe what it was like to find a lawyer that took my best interest in all he did. Chris is not my first lawyer and I would use him again if needed. The best family lawyer out there.

I embarked on this divorce with a totally different law firm that was large and respected and although they did a great job for me, it was all due in part to my lawyer. He has since joined Nebraska Legal Group. Chris Pomerleau has been with me for every motion, hearing, rant, explosion, and frustrating/joyous situation and believe me there have been many. He has always been the voice of reason and provided sound counsel. The best thing about Chris is he gets it. He knows that it is more than just a case but a relationship where there will be disagreements and compromises. Chris does a great job of differentiating them and getting through it to the end with your family and yourself as the primary focus. I wouldn’t trust my case to anyone else, THAT is why NLG has gained a valuable asset that I hope many will come to appreciate as I have.

Chris Pomerleau was my attorney, and I have nothing but the best to say about his professionalism, knowledge, and courtesy. Chris recognizes that these types of legal proceedings are about people. He was very rational and assisted me through many decisions and issues, yet aggressive when it was required to be. He was always available for discussion and over time became a good friend not just my attorney. I would recommend Chris and his abilities to anyone.

The first time I met Chris, I was extremely impressed by his comprehensive knowledge, his ability to grasp disparate pieces of information and place them into context and the fact that he actually listened to me. Now, I understand why people are saying that this is the “go to” guy in Omaha for Family Law – and I agree.

Todd is an incredible attorney. I’m not sure I will ever be able to thank him enough for what he has done for my daughter and I through and even after my divorce. He explains everything throughout the process and is a truly genuine person. I have already recommend him to friends and family and continue to recommend him to anyone that needs a great family attorney.

I have known of Dave and his success in family law for many years. No doubt that he has assembled the best team to bring top notch legal help to the metro. Decades of successful experience is what you need when trying to navigate such a tumultuous time in life. Nobody wants to go through a divorce, but it pays to have someone you can trust looking out for you and your interests.

Greg Lake is an attorney I would recommend without hesitation to anyone facing a divorce case. He really listens to his clients, which I think is one of the most important things in a lawyer, and he stays focused on what is really important in your case. Highly recommended!

I was fortunate enough to have Megan Spomer take my case in the pursuit of the custody of my daughter. I was lost, confused, and didn’t know where to start. I thought all was lost… till I meet with Megan. She picked me up, gave me support, and confidence. Within months I had full custody of my daughter and without Megan it would have never been possible I thank you I praise you Megan Spomer. If your a man who does right by his children Megan is the attorney for you!!!
