Domestic relations cases, "family law cases," may only be resolved in four ways: trial of the matter, settlement, reconciliation or the death of a party. The first two of these are the domain of a divorce attorney. If the matter cannot be settled and an accord reached, we have the skills, experience and reputation to effectively meet and prevail over Nebraska's best legal talent. 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 the arenas in which such advocacy is tested: counseling, litigation or by appeal to the Nebraska Court of Appeals or Nebraska Supreme Court; or be it by the manner in which such advocacy is conducted: attention to detail and follow-up, written and spoken communication, straight 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 effect the necessary prosecution of our clients' interests.
In certain circumstances where the law of the state may not be fully developed or where it's proper application leads to an unfair result, our lawyers are prepared to present the matter(s) to Nebraska's appellate court and Supreme Court and argue for a new and more equitable interpretation of these laws.
In the past 20 years, Higgins Law has, through advocacy on its clients' behalf, had a direct hand in changing or 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.
With an AV Preeminent rating*, Higgins Law represents the highest level of practice and integrity in the State of Nebraska.
