    When you or someone you care about is injured, it can feel like life is overwhelming. Constant doctor visits, and missing out on family events and work, disrupt your normal routine. All because someone caused you harm.

    While there is no way to get back the time, there is a way to maximize your financial recovery. Experience counts. The number one difference between the right result for you, and a feeling of regret, is the experience of someone who knows how to achieve every advantage possible.

    Protect yourself and those you love with a professional family who works for you. Anderson, Klein, Brewster & Brandt has a tradition of millions in settlements and verdicts collected for our clients.

    There are no fees unless we are successful for you or your loved one. We understand the difficulty of travel, and gladly offer free home and hospital consultations if you can’t make it to our offices.

    Contact us to schedule your free consultation with our family of professionals who have the experience you need to obtain the right result for you.

  • Criminal Defense

    Fighting for freedom happens every day. In courtrooms throughout Central and Greater Nebraska, are examples of bad things happening to good people. Our country is founded on the principle of individual liberty. No one, not a police officer, prosecutor, judge, or even the Governor is above the constitution and its protections.

    Anderson, Klein, Brewster & Brandt are on your side, and we use our experience to your advantage. All criminal matters are serious, and we fight for the rights of those charged with Felony (I-80 Drug Stops, Homicide, Sex offenses, Robbery), and Misdemeanor (DUI, Assaults, Traffic offenses) matters every day.

  • Family Law

    Divorce, custody, modification, child support, alimony, parenting plan. These are often foreign words to people who have never been exposed to the divorce process or family law.

The knowledge of what may be down the road will help you avoid the pitfalls and traps along the way.
