Travis Allan Spier is a partner with Atwood, Holsten, Brown, Deaver & Spier Law Firm, P.C., L.L.O. He graduated from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln with High Distinction in 2004 and thereafter earned his law degree at the University of Nebraska College of Law. A member of the firm since 2005, Travis' law practice is exclusively limited to litigation and trial work, representing injured individuals, employers and insurance carriers in the areas of workers' compensation, personal injury and wrongful death. Travis is a member of the Nebraska State Bar Association and the Nebraska Association of Trial Attorneys. He is licensed in all Nebraska state and federal courts and has successfully argued cases to the Nebraska Court of Appeals and Nebraska Supreme Court.

On a personal note, Travis was born and raised in Pawnee City, Nebraska, where he experienced firsthand the advantages which accompany a rural Nebraska upbringing and education, including the opportunity to participate in a number of different extracurricular activities such as athletics, musical arts, speech and drama. In 1999, he moved to Lincoln to obtain his undergraduate and law degrees and now makes his home in another great rural community, Waverly, Nebraska. When he has free time, you will find Travis outdoors--most often playing football, softball or golf, or hunting, fishing, camping and grilling with his family and friends.

  • It can be very difficult to manage the workers' compensation process on your own. The process can become complicated. When it does, you need to get an attorney and not just any attorney, you need Travis Spier of Atwood, Holsten, Brown & Deaver Law Firm, P.C., L.L.O. I wouldn't have made it through my case without him. He didn't treat me like I was one of 100 clients. He treated me like I was his only client. He acted professionally but with empathy, dignity and friendliness. It didn't matter if it was something small or large, he was always there for me, be it by phone, fax, e-mail, cell phone or meeting me personally at his office or elsewhere. He never rushed me when I didn't understand something, he'd take as much time as needed to explain things to me, especially when it came time for my deposition and in preparation for trial. He was there for me when I truly needed his help. I will refer my family and friends to him. - Cheryl G.

  • Travis represented me in my injury case. Having interacted with him for a long time now, I have had countless opportunities to appreciate his professionalism and his dedication to advancing his client's interests. He always managed to make himself promptly available to meet me, if necessary, or to have a personal phone discussion with me whenever I needed it. Whenever I left a message for his secretary or on his voice mail, I always got his personal return call on the same day and never later than the next day. He took the time to listen patiently to my concerns and questions and provided me with thoughtful answers which helped me understand and put me at ease. When facing alternative courses of action, Travis explained carefully the alternatives and pointed out the most beneficial ones, clearly showing that he never lost sight of his client's best interests. When my work comp adjuster failed to timely authorize the refill of my pain medication, or when some doctors' offices were wrongly directing bills to me, Travis took immediate action to put an end to it. I am certainly happy to have had Travis Allan Spier as my lawyer for my injury case. In addition to being an excellent lawyer, Travis is a friendly, honest and patient person, easy to talk to and rely upon. I would strongly and without reservation recommend him to a family member or to a friend.

This office is staffed by a great group of people. You can relax and be assured that your welfare comes first and foremost in their decisions and actions with respect to your legal case. You are kept aware of the process and progress in your case at all times, and your input is welcomed. I highly recommend Travis and the Atwood Law Firm to anyone needing legal assistance.

  • Travis represented my son for injuries he sustained in a motor vehicle accident. Travis was great to work with from beginning to end of my son's case. Travis explained procedures and gave his advice concisely and clearly so all decisions could be made in the best interests of my son. Communication between us was excellent and it was always clear what the next step would be and why. Travis was open to receiving my input and took any suggestions I had and used them in the most positive way for my son's case. His hard work, legal strategies and communications with the insurance companies involved were always with my son's best interests in mind. I would not hesitate to recommend Travis to anyone should they find themselves in a similar situation. We have nothing but gratitude and respect for Travis. Travis fought for what my son deserved and he got it.

Travis was available most of the time and scheduling a meeting with him was easy. Travis was very professional when answering my questions and updating me on the progress of my claim. I felt at ease around Travis and it was clear that he cared about me and his main focus was not monetary. Travis was able to get me the best results concerning my claim and was very patient throughout the claim process. Overall, I had a great experience working with Travis and he made me feel important. I would recommend him to others as well.
