Organized in October of 1997, the firm formed as a result of the merger of two established law firms in Southeast Nebraska; the Fankhauser & Werts Law Office of Humboldt, NE and the Nelsen Law Office of Nebraska City, NE. After the merger, Fankhauser Nelsen Law Firm added a third office in Auburn, NE.

Our aim is to provide the same level of expertise and specialization of larger urban firms while preserving local convenience and rural/small town values and relationships. Fankhauser Nelsen Law Firm accomplishes this goal by having each attorney devote a substantial amount of time to certain primary areas of practice.

While each attorney concentrates his or her practice in designated areas, the firm as a whole is best described as general practice law firm that is able to handle most legal matters.
