Nicole Mailahn represents clients in several different areas of law, but works primarily in family law, custody, guardianships/conservatorships and workers’ compensation.

In her family law practice, Nicole works with clients who have simple uncontested divorces to cases involving custody litigation, including requests to relocate to another state. She also assists clients enmeshed in domestic violence situations. Nicole is well attuned to understand the underlying issues and motives involved in these types of cases. In addition to the standard issues with custody, she also addresses the division of the assets and debts, as well as property issues implicated in divorce cases (e.g., tracing of premarital and nonmarital assets and debts, Grace awards, application of Van Newkirk exceptions, valuation of business entities).

Nicole regularly assists clients dealing with relatives or close friends in need of assistance with their financial or medical needs by setting up a guardianship or conservatorship. In this role, she is skilled in performing all primary and supplementary work involved, such as reaching out to medical providers to confirm the necessity of an appointment, as well as assisting with annual reporting and accounting that is court ordered after an appointment. She regularly participates as an advisor in guardianship/conservatorship training classes to answer questions newly appointed guardians and conservators may have.

At Jacobsen Orr, Nicole also serves as the primary attorney for workers’ compensation cases. She has successfully defended several workers’ compensation trials in which her clients were awarded temporary total disability benefits, permanent disability benefits, payment of past and future medical expenses, attorney fees and vocational rehabilitation services. Nicole has appeared in front of the workers’ compensation review panel and has also argued workers’ compensation cases to the Nebraska Court of Appeals and Supreme Court.

In addition, Nicole regularly deals with workers’ compensation issues posed by corporate clients. Working on behalf of the employer, Nicole has drafted several stipulations and settlements resolving all claims on behalf of the employer and employee. She has also defended employers that did not have the proper insurance coverage under the Workers’ Compensation Act. She is adept in communicating with employees, employers and insurance companies to comply with the Workers’ Compensation Act, working to resolve disputes without initiating a lawsuit.
