Summary


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.

Q. Can i enter a property that i am buying that currently has renters
A: You are not the landlord if you are in the process of buying, so no, you can't enter even if you give notice. You could have the actual landlord give notice and they can take you with them to see the property. You should probably be represented by an attorney in the purchase as well to protect yourself.
Q. Mom passed away, I would like to buy her home. sibling is the Estate PR will not sell me the house. What can I do
A: You need to contact the judge in the probate court, if the case is in probate court, preferably with a lawyer. If its not in probate court you need to get a lawyer and see it it could be brought to probate court. The factual and legal possibilities are too broad to be more specific in this setting, but you definitely need to find a lawyer in your county with all due haste and get moving before any court deadlines or other deadlines or issues permanently pass you by !!!
Q. Is this even legal? What options do we have available.
A: You have stated there are 76 condo units. I would not be able to give any opinions without doing a conflict of interest check first. Based on your family's ownership of multiple units, I suggest you make an actual office appointment with an attorney.
