Recognized Family Law Services

Operating by the light of the principle that "one never negotiates effectively from a position of weakness," Higgins Law also understands that sometimes what is in your children's best interests (as well as your own) may only be had by the application of textured and thoughtful negotiation. Whether it be by the politics of negotiation or the razor of litigation, Higgins Law will pursue your family's best interests with integrity, acumen and vigor.

Higgins Law is a practice dedicated to providing the absolute highest level of legal advocacy in every aspect of domestic relations representation — be it by the mastering of our opponents in the arenas in which such advocacy is tested: counseling, family court litigation or by appeal to the Nebraska Court of Appeals or Nebraska Supreme Court; or by the manner in which such advocacy is conducted: with an attention to detail and follow-up, by peerless written and spoken communication, by strength in argument and integrity in the conduct of all matters; or be it by experience and reputation in negotiations.

Should the usual application of effort and the standard application of the law not provide a ready course, the attorneys at Higgins Law will propose creative solutions to protect our clients' interests.

In the past 20 years, the lawyers at Higgins Law have, through advocacy on their clients' behalf, had a direct hand in changing and developing the law as it pertains to the removal of children from the state, the rights due a citizen in contempt actions and protection orders, fathers' rights and the role of guardians ad litem — among others.

Located in Omaha, we handle cases in Douglas County, Sarpy County and surrounding areas.
