Read What Our Clients Have To Say
I cannot thank you enough for the peace of mind you have brought to my family! Both of my parents are extremely grateful for your work. I knew we were in good hands from the first meeting and you have exceeded all my expectations! It may feel straightforward to you, but to us, you have moved mountains. This settlement will allow my parents, particularly my Dad, to enjoy the rest of their lives to the fullest of their abilities. We all agree that we would give every cent back and more for my Dad to walk again, but that is not going to happen. This will allow them to have financial security and most importantly, allow him to buy a tracked wheelchair so he can get back into the wilds of Central Nebraska and hopefully shoot and fish again! You and your practice have been so wonderful through this most difficult time. I wish I was there in person to thank you. From the bottom of my heart, thank you again.
“…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, email, cellphone 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…”
The lawyers and support staff at Atwood, Holsten, Brown, Deaver, Spier & Israel showed me sincere interest and caring on a very personal level, and I knew at all times my interests were front and center in all aspects of my workers’ compensation case. 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 Atwood, Holsten, Brown, Deaver, Spier & Israel to anyone needing legal assistance.
“…My husband and I felt his kindness immediately and were both very impressed with his knowledge of what to expect in a wrongful death case. He pursued our claim in an aggressive manner while at the same time being very protective of our rights and privacy and sheltered us from any unnecessary contact with insurance agents, or any other adverse parties. My husband and I cannot say enough about the kindness, professionalism and legal ability demonstrated by Atwood, Holsten, Brown, Deaver, Spier & Israel Law Firm, P.C., L.L.O.”
“…If it were not for this law firm all I would have received from this injury would have been a loss of income check and a pat on the back, goodbye. Which only would have been a fraction of what I actually received. He was always professional but more importantly he cared about me and my family as people not just a client. He went beyond his role as my lawyer. He even spoke with my bank and explained why I was behind on my car payment. And this saved me getting my car repossessed…”
Things I expect from a good lawyer: knowledge and seasoned experience, professionalism, integrity, strategic thinking, enthusiasm, and responsiveness. Ellen Deaver provides all of the above with a high level of personal attention and responsiveness her clients appreciate. She can foresee, understand and solve problems in an efficient and effective manner with the highest level of understanding of the law. Ms. Deaver believes in being there for her clients. She always returns phone calls and e-mails as quickly as possible – the same business day. She listens and understands requests and strives to produce positive outcomes.

The staff at Atwood Law is a pleasure to deal with and I would recommend the firm for your business needs, specifically Ms. Ellen Deaver who I have found to be a pleasure to work with. Ms. Deaver is easy to connect with and is knowledgeable about Nebraska law and it’s application. She endeavors to maintain a high degree of professionalism. It is my observation that Ms. Deaver is respected by opposing counsel and the Nebraska Judges. We have had good case outcomes with her pursuit of case resolution, including the timely file “wrap up” of paperwork and the billing to close a file.
Ellen was outstanding, helped explain what I didn’t understand, and returned phone calls promptly. She was willing to fight for what I deserved and was always pleasant. Everyone at the firm was always at my service.
