Thank you for taking the time to read the first edition of our newsletter! My team and I are excited to connect with you on a more personal level and share some of our expertise, from the ins and outs of the legal world to some great seasonal recipes. I’m a big believer that people should really get to know their legal representatives, so I’d like to begin by sharing a bit about me and where I come from. the loss of a loved one. I was a senior in high school when my grandfather passed away — old enough to grasp the pain and confusion the ensuing legal process caused. I remember being taken to many meetings to sort out his will and was aware of the toll it took on my already mourning family. Like many people, my first encounter with probate didn’t come in a law class but with

my own family faced. I did not, however, follow a straight path from high school to becoming an attorney. In fact, it wasn’t the law but golf that brought me to our fair state of Nebraska. While I had lawyers in the family, including my father, I was taken with golf as a young man. It helped that I was good at the sport. After playing throughout high school and college, I toured as a coaching professional. I saw a lot of this great country, and during the Nike Tour, Jim Hackenberg, inventor of the Orange Whip, advised me to stop in Omaha. I took a coaching job at a country club and have been here ever since. I eventually followed my father’s footsteps to becoming an attorney. Yet I like to think those years spent coaching helped prepare

me for representing folks in a way law school couldn’t. Much like golf, issues of estate planning and elder law take patience and a steady hand. There are plenty of pitfalls, and it’s easy to go astray if you aren’t careful. These days, I don’t find much time to actually get out and golf. Between helping our clients and being a new father, I’m quite the busy man in and out of the office. I may not be teeing off as often anymore, but I get to raise a family while doing work I’m passionate about in a great town. That’s plenty to be grateful for. That being said, let me know if you’re looking to improve your swing this spring.

Eventually, that experience factored in to my founding of Boyum Law Firm. To this day, my favorite part about this job is that I get to help families comprehend and navigate what is a highly complex and emotionally charged area of the law. Best of all, I get to help them avoid situations like the one
