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.
Chris Pomerleau is a dedicated attorney who works diligently to meet his client’s objectives. As a fellow attorney, I truly value his efforts and the contributions he makes to his firm, the community, and his clients.

You could not ask for a better family law attorney than Chris Pomerleau. He is attentive and always on top of the facts in his cases. It’s a breath of fresh air to know that an attorney is really working for what the client wants and not just in it to make money!
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.
Christopher Pomerleau and the entire staff were amazing to work with.
Chris’s work is absolutely outstanding. He is a smart, compassionate, hardworking attorney and I highly recommend him to anyone needing representation in a divorce case.
I am writing to recommend Chris Pomerleau as an incredible divorce lawyer. There is no question he goes the extra mile for his clients.
