For a suspect or an accused in Nebraska, some of the most important rights found in the Bill of Rights include the right against unreasonable searches and seizures, self-incrimination, cruel and unusual punishment and the right to an attorney.
When you’re accused of a crime, you still have rights. Unfortunately, many prosecutors will attempt to bypass these rights in order to get a conviction or a guilty plea. Do not let this happen to you. I’ve successfully defended countless Nebraska criminal cases - and I'm ready to go to work for you, too.

Tom is wonderful to work with. He is very professional and attentive to the needs of his clients. My husband needed a lawyer in a short time frame and Tom didn't hesitate taking the case. The case had a terrific outcome. All in all; Tom is a beast!!
I’ll start with saying 5 stars ⭐️!! Tom took very good care of us in a stressful time. He eased that stress and got us great results FAST! From the start of the case Tom gave us realistic expectations and in the end he was spot on! I recommend Tom with Peterson law to anyone needing legal services!!!!!
I give the highest level of recommendation for Mr. Petersen. He’s extremely professional, a great communicator, and sets realistic expectation for potential outcomes. He’s a great guiding hand in the situation you hoped to never find yourself in and will do everything he can to end in the best outcome.
