Come Meet Us
If you would like to discuss your case with us, we would appreciate the
opportunity to meet you. We prefer meeting you in person because it makes
for a better introduction and gives you the chance to get to know us as
we get to know you. Our
goal in the initial consultation is to let you
tell us your story. We will then tell you about the services that we can offer in dealing
with your injury and making yourself whole again.
All of the advice that we offer to you in that initial meeting - whether
you hire us or not - is free.
If you choose The Robert Pahlke Law Group, we typically use a
contingency-fee arrangement. That means that you
do not pay us anything unless you win your lawsuit either through a jury verdict in the courtroom or an insurance settlement
without a trial. Even then, the payment is only a portion of the verdict
or settlement. That way, our earnings are based on our success:
If we do not succeed, then we do not get paid.
The Robert Pahlke Law Group's beginnings can be traced back to R.M.
Van Steenberg (1917 - 1997), or "Van" to his friends and associates.
More than 40 years ago, until February of 1965, Van served as a district
judge. Then, on February 1, Van teamed up with Frank Winner and Don Wood
to start a law firm named Van Steenberg, Winner, and Wood.
In those days, the trio had a partnership for their law firm before they
had a permanent roof for it. Worried more about practicing law than keeping
rain out, they temporarily worked out of the trunk of a car and out of
a local bank before taking up permanent residence at 1904 1st Avenue in
Although Winner and Wood departed, Van's pioneering, charismatic leadership
led to the formation of The Van Steenberg Firm. In addition to leading
the law firm, Van was also president of the
Nebraska State Bar and the
Nebraska Association of Trial Attorneys. After Van passed away in 1997 and the firm got above critical mass with
a double-digit number of attorneys, it separated into two parts, one of
which became Pahlke, Smith, Snyder, Petitt, and Eubanks.
