Mary Kay Hansen Law & Mediation PC LLO
I was recently diagnosed with ALS. No medical treatment is available so the only first step was filing with Social Security to get disability income started asap. Being a lawyer once, I prepared the application myself. To my shock my claim was denied. The impact of this was far greater than my dying. Then I found Mary Kay Hansen. Her specialty is Social Security and her knowledge and expertise is unparalleled in Nebraska. While very professional she still brings true empathy to her cases. She really knew how devastated facing this life destroying disease and the denial of disability was to my wife and me. She helped us in finding hope. She took the case it was only weeks before I was receiving disability.Before she got involved we were only thinking how we could we ever get through this. Mary Kay Hansen has now enabled us to focus on how we can maximize our limited time together. She didn’t give us more years, but she gave us a chance of happiness in these years.

Amazing, honest, very punctual and accurate advice. Terry is an upstanding, honest, and to the point attorney. There is noone better in heart, legal, or otherwise to represent one of need. I have found him to be incredibly honest and driven. When he finds something to be in question or inaccurate, he will fire you. For him, money is not the issue. Attorneys get a bad name because of lies and integrity being in question. Terry is, and always has been, very up front and in my face about his standards of practice, which most certainly carry on through his life. I would trust none other. I put my whole heart into his hands, being the lives of my 4 children, knowing he has our best interests at heart. He is an amazing attorney, and above that, an amazing man. I'm very very proud to have such a man in my corner.

Brent worked on my case to assist me in obtaining my resident card. He was very diligent and worked hard for me and did not forget me when I was stuck in mexico for 16 months. He went well out of his way to help my family.He billed me very fairly and was able to wait for some of the money. I have chosen him to assist me in my final step in obtaining citizenship.I have highly recommended him and I would highly recommend is agency. He is a very upstanding and good lawyer.

Tips & Advices
When it comes time to choose a lawyer, you should start by searching close to home. If you do have attorneys you are familiar with, ask who they believe would be best for you. After going through personal references - especially from individuals who had similar needs - you should broaden your search through public information resources. You can call your area's attorney referral service or check legal organizations like Martindale-Hubbell. There are other resources available online, such as yellowpages.com. You can check websites for client reviews and other third-party forms of approval.
If you sign documents and you come across a word you don't recognize, or you need help to navigate important employment or real estate paperwork. Also, during times when personal matters intersect with legal proceedings, you might need to have an advocate to prevent your emotions from getting in the way. If you've been accused of a crime or are in a terrible financial situation, you can find an attorney who will work with what you have available.
When you hire a lawyer, you're agreeing to work with someone over a certain period of time. The more forthcoming the lawyer appears to be with individual needs, the better.
  • You need to ask questions about how the attorney will communicate with you and what responsibilities you hold in the relationship.
  • The attorney should let you know the best channel for quick communication and you need to inform him or her when you want updates.
  • You should also ask questions to get to know the attorney as an individual in order to ensure this is a person you can trust. Ask about their legal philosophy and how he or she views the lawyer/client relationship. Ask as how to keep fees down or what daily disruptions you should expect from a long legal battle.
You need to ask about every possible fee that will come up when working with an attorney. You should request a list of all costs in advance so you won't be surprised by additional expenses like overhead. Also determine exactly when you will start being billed. You want to inspect paperwork carefully. If the attorney charges you for his or her experience, you need to make sure he or she will perform tasks personally and not hand it off to an assistant. Find out if the attorney has a flat fee or charges by the hour. Many civil lawyers work on contingency. Make inquiries about how the lawyer plans to provide service for your money and what you can do if you start to feel unsatisfied with his or her performance.
You can ask how many similar cases they have handled and if they have special skills or training that applies specifically to your needs. Lawyers can't mention clients by name, but you should ask for basic details about identical past cases. You should check their office for the appropriate certifications and diplomas. You can also ask how long he or she has practiced law and request information that demonstrates the practice's success. Look for precise details such as percentage of cases settled out of court.
