Attorney Hugh I. Abrahamson is the lawyer you want on your side to protect you and your children as you move through life's important transitions. Whether you need his services for family law matters, criminal defense, or personal injury representation, he has the passion, confidence, and expertise you need to position your case for success.

Guided by Upstanding Principles to Serve the Community

After high school, Hugh went on to the University of Nebraska-Lincoln where he received his Bachelor of Science and graduated in 1969. Later, he went on to earn his Juris Doctor from Creighton University School of Law in 1983. While High was a student, he became a member of two fraternities: Sigma Alpha Mu and Phi Alpha Delta. Sigma Alpha Mu's heavy emphasis on social service and leadership played a key role in the values that influence how he practices law today. Likewise, Phi Alpha Delta — a law fraternity —- inspired Hugh to practice law with a dedication to integrity, compassion, and courage at the core.

My goal is to restore the peace of mind my clients lost during this difficult season of their lives. Successful results today mean a happy life tomorrow and the days to follow.


Two years after graduating from law school, he was admitted to the State of Nebraska Bar Association and was also admitted to the United States Court District of Nebraska Bar Association and the United States Federal Court Bar Association.

Committed to Your Well-Being and Peace of Mind

One of Hugh's goal as an attorney is to alleviate the stress and dissipate the fear that comes with the types of situations his clients have to face. He understands that legal matters can sometimes be complex, confusing, and complicated — which only adds on to the emotional and mental strain. That's why he makes a point of being available, listening to his client's needs, and offering sound advice that will guide them to the light at the end of the tunnel.

Some of the types of cases Hugh can assist with are:

  • Family Law - Are you going through a separation or divorce? Is child custody, visitation, or support a concern? Hugh's expertise can help you navigate your options.
  • Criminal Defense - Whether you're facing a DUI/DWI, order of protection, homicide, or fraud, Hugh knows how to defend your name, honor, and freedom.
  • Personal Injury - Were you hurt due to the negligence of someone else? Be it a slip and fall, car accident, or wrongful death, Hugh can utilize his insight to work towards a full and fair compensation.
