Summary

Kathleen Pallesen is passionate attorney who finds fulfillment by helping people in times of legal crisis. With an extensive legal background in juvenile and guardianship issues, Kathleen has found that her greatest strength revolves around her ability to help those in need. She knows, instinctively, how to make connections with people and how to help them formulate a solution to their problems. Kathleen has the ability to think outside the box, and craft solutions tailored for her individual clients.

Kathleen started her legal career in Washington D.C. as a legislative aide to Congressman Peter Hoagland. After moving back to Omaha in 1995, Kathleen became a prosecutor for the Douglas County Attorney's Office. As an attorney in the juvenile division of the county attorney's office, Kathleen created the "Termination Unit," where she exclusively filed and adjudicated all the termination of parental rights cases due to the backlog of children languishing in the Omaha foster care. She also spent time prosecuting adult drug felony cases in the Douglas County Attorney's Office. Kathleen now brings her wide array of experience to help clients with many civil problems, including probate, guardianship, civil litigation, and elder law.
