She also handles appeals for clients whose cases do not initially produce positive outcomes, or whose outcomes are challenged by the opposition post verdict.

Bankruptcy law

Kathryn represents debtors and creditors in consumer and business bankruptcies. She meets with individuals and families to determine whether bankruptcy is right for them given their current financial circumstances and what they anticipate the state of their finances will be in the coming years. If bankruptcy is right for them, she walks consumers through the process of filing Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy petitions. She acts as the debtor's point of contact with their creditors as well as the Nebraska bankruptcy courts.

In addition to her work with debtors, Kathryn routinely advocates for creditors' rights in bankruptcy proceedings. She attends 341 hearings and other bankruptcy court hearings on behalf of her clients. She works with secured debt creditors and helps them recover debts owed by the petitioner by:

  • Placing liens on the borrowers' properties
  • Obtaining prejudgment attachments
  • Obtaining writs of execution or garnishment
  • Taking security interests in the borrowers' properties

Business law

Business and corporate law make up a significant portion of Kathryn's practice. Kathryn provides comprehensive guidance to small and medium-sized companies during routine transactions and litigation proceedings. Her services span a wide range of transaction matters, including:

  • Business formations
  • Business entity selection
  • Contract drafting and negotiations
  • Business dissolutions
  • Mergers and acquisitions
  • Sales and purchases
  • Accounts receivable and collection assistance

She represents companies in various stages of business-related disputes.

Civil litigation

Kathryn also works with individuals and businesses facing civil law disputes involving contracts, real estate and select other areas of the law. She also handles personal injury claims for plaintiffs who have been injured due to someone else's negligence, carelessness or deliberately malicious actions.

Tax collection assistance

Trying economic times inevitably lead to difficulty paying taxes. Kathryn assists companies, individuals and families who owe money to the IRS or state taxing authorities but cannot make payment in full. She has helped countless clients successfully see their way through the difficult process of handling past-due taxes, creating offers in compromise or installment payment plans to satisfy applicable tax agencies.
