Your Ally in Uncomplicating the Divorce, Custody and Civil Litigation Process

Omaha Family Law Attorney, Mediator & Civil Litigator - Diligently representing clients in Nebraska and Iowa.

Omaha attorney Brad Marsicek came to Goosmann Law Firm with a distinguished and diverse background of transactional and litigation legal experience that allows him to be one of the go-to Nebraska and Iowa divorce and litigation attorneys. Brad’s legal experience spans beyond divorce/custody litigation into general civil litigation, real estate, insurance law, and alternative-dispute resolution/mediation.

Brad brings honest advice and a straightforward approach to each case. He ensures that each client’s case starts with an in-depth discussion of the client’s goals and needs, which allows him to develop the best legal plan and strategy to meet the case objectives. Throughout the progression of each case, Brad consistently keeps his clients updated with the case status and he is always evaluating the case strategy as developments occur during the litigation process. Brad firmly believes that his clients should always have direct access to their attorney and up-to-date information on their case. Brad prides himself on maintaining this practice model.

Over the past 15 years Brad has helped business owners and professionals in legal matters, with a special focus on representing those clients seeking to preserve their parental rights or assets in divorce. He understands that his clients have worked hard to build their family, career, and/or businesses and he works diligently to protect what his clients have built.

Brad has an intricate understanding of the litigation process and knowledge of the local judges. He brings a business acumen and a better understanding of financial affairs of higher income clients that benefits all his clients going through the divorce process.

Brad’s mediation practice utilizes his straight-forward approach and his experience as a family law litigator to provide a neutral, unbiased, and comprehensive approach to mediation. Brad’s goal in mediation is always to help people reach a less expensive and mutually beneficial agreement outside of court. By reaching agreements outside of court, Brad can help mediation clients craft an agreement that meets both party’s needs, as opposed to having a Court order imposed on them that often meets no one’s needs. The resulting mediated agreements tend to be more durable, lead to less animosity between ex-spouses, and in turn, lead to less future litigation than the alternative Court-drafted parenting plans and agreements.

Brad’s mediation services include parenting plans in divorce and child custody cases and financial mediations for the more complex cases. He also provides collaborative divorce services by facilitating divorce agreements and drafting of necessary paperwork that reflects a jointly negotiated agreement between spouses outside of the courtroom.

Prior to joining Goosmann Law Firm, Brad was the lead litigator for a national-based law firm, and he has handled hundreds of contested divorce and custody cases across Nebraska and Iowa. Brad has extensive trial experience, having litigated 40+ domestic bench trials and has defended and advocated for clients through hundreds of contested hearings. He was elected by his peers as a Super Lawyers Rising Star in 2017 and 2020. He is a graduate of the prestigious ABA/NITA (National Institute for Trial Advocacy) Family Law Advocacy Course in Boulder, Colorado and the Nebraska Mediation Association Basic and Family Law Mediation Courses.

Whether you are looking to have to an amicable resolution in a divorce mediation or seeking justice in your civil litigation matter, Brad Marsicek is ready to be the vigilant ally at your side.
