Michelle Miller-McCoy

I have been practicing law in the areas of estate planning and business law for over twenty years.  The part of my practice that I enjoy most is working with clients to find practical solutions.  Ideally, this is done by planning ahead.  A lot of problems can be avoided through the use of simple tools such as trusts, powers of attorney, prenuptial agreements, limited liability companies and buy/sell agreements.

Often, though, I meet clients after the worst has happened and the time for pre-planning has passed.  In these cases, the goal is to help them through as professionally and kindly as possible.  This might mean establishing a guardianship/conservatorship for a disabled family member, helping a client though a challenging probate or trust administration, or helping transition a business.

Niel and I have similar practices and appreciate the chance to work together as partners and sounding boards.  However, we have learned from long experience that we are experts in our areas but cannot be experts in all things.  If your legal needs are outside of our scope, we will make a referral to an experienced attorney who will be a better fit for your legal issue.


By way of background, I graduated from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln with a B.A. in 1994, and received my law degree from Creighton Law school in 1997.  Before forming this firm with Niel, I was a partner at Erickson & Sederstrom, and then at Carlson & Burnett.  I am honored to have served on the Douglas County Board of Mental Health since 2015.  I have been named as a Fellow of the Nebraska Bar Foundation and have taught Business Law at the University of Nebraska at Omaha.  When not working, I enjoy spending time with my husband and two children.
