At The Robert Pahlke Law Group, we believe that the success of our firm will only be as good as our legal team. Each one of our attorneys are passionate about what we do, and bringing justice to wrongdoers and helping injury victims rebuild their lives is what brings true joy to our practice.
Our hard work and dedication can be readily observed through our professional achievements and credentials, which we believe is an important indicator of an attorney’s competence. In a recent achievement, we are proud to announce thatAttorney Robert Hippe was recognized as a Distinguished Alum during homecoming ceremonies at the University of Nebraska at Kearney.
Born and raised in Nebraska, Attorney Hippe grew up on a ranch in the Nebraska Sandhills. He earned his bachelor’s degree from Kearney State College and his juris doctorate from the University of Nebraska College of Law in 1968.
After working at a general practice firm for several years, in 1975 he was elected the Scotts Bluff County Attorney. After serving as a prosecutor for two years, he was appointed district judge in the Nebraska 12th District. He served as a judge for 30 years until his retirement in 2007.
After a brief one and a half year retirement, in 2009 he joined The Pahlke Law Group as a staff litigator. He also has a separate mediation service outside of the firm.
Over the course of his prestigious legal career, Attorney Hippe has been a major contributor to the Nebraska Community on many levels. He was a founder of Nebraska Child Support Guidelines, Scottsbluff Senior Citizen’s Center, the Panhandle Legal Services Office, and radio station KCMI, not to mention his active membership in numerous community service organizations.
Attorney Hippe is the chair of the Supreme Court’s Committee on Practice and Procedure, and he is a member of the Nebraska State Bar Association, and the Supreme Court’s Advisory Committee. In his past positions, he served on the Nebraska Dispute Resolution Advisory Council, the advisory board for Nebraska Judicial College, and the Nebraska Supreme Court Advisory Committee.
His contributions to the education and legal sectors have earned him numerous prestigious awards over the years, including the first Distinguished Judge Award, and the Nebraska Child Support Enforcement Lifetime Service Award for his commitment to Nebraska’s children.
We want to congratulate Attorney Hippe for his recognition as a Distinguished Alum at UNK, and we are very proud to have such an outstanding attorney and human being as a part of our legal team!
