The staff at Higgins Law provided wonderful, honest service. Matt was even helpful in bringing forth communications between the other party and myself. They will communicate with you when it is necessary, and were very timely in all my required actions by the court. Matt even took time to further me as an individual in the process of case preparation. I am very satisfied with the results that this law firm produced.

I highly urge you to seek another law office. Higgins Law is very unprofessional and will say anything to get you to sign with them. They will not and do not communicate with you. They will continually ask for more and more money. I have heard the same story from others after the fact of me giving them my money (this is my fault and just hope others do not make the same mistake). The highlight is Matt sends me a letter stating he will no longer represent me after I told him my concerns. I called

If everyone else tells you because your a man, no matter how much better fitted you are as a parent you will lose against a women in the state of Nebraska. This is what I was told and after 3 attorney's and $15,000 later I believed it. Then I found Matt Higgins and for a third of what I had already spent, it took 1 court appearances to turn that around by getting me exactly what I asked for.

Scam Artist Law Firm, paid $1000 dollars to have a motion filed by a certain date, motion never was filed attorney never calls back, and when questioned about the poor service, the firm terminated my contract meaning they fired me but i hired them!

Missed a filing deadline which cost me my case, misappropriated trust funds deposited with him for services he never provided. Took 6 years to get the money back. Horrible attorney.

Have had many "bad" attorneys in the past 5 years. Matt Higgins was fabulous. His firm is very professional. I was very happy with their service.
