The majority of my civil litigation practice is representing injured people, but I represent clients on a variety of matters ranging from employment disputes to wrongful death. Like all attorneys at Rehm, Bennett, & Moore, I represent Plaintiffs and do not work for the insurance companies.

I am originally from Wisner, Nebraska where, like most rural Nebraska kids, I participated in nearly all the sports and activities the town had to offer.

After high school, I received my Bachelor of Arts degree, cum laude, in Communications from Concordia University Texas in 2003.

I eventually returned to Nebraska and received my Juris Doctorate, with distinction, from the University of Nebraska College of Law. There, I completed a Litigation Program of concentrated study. I also participated in various Moot Court competitions and trial advocacy specialization courses to prepare myself to become a Trial Lawyer.

While in law school, I was a member of the Robert Van Pelt Inn of Court and was awarded the Alan L. Plessman Student Award. In addition, I worked as a senior certified prosecutor at the Lancaster County Attorney's Office. I also was a law clerk for Rehm, Bennett, & Moore, where I joined the firm as an associate upon graduation from law school.

I currently reside in Lincoln with my wife and four children.
