Having studied business as an undergraduate, Mr. Bruno’s transition into business law was a natural progression. As he tells it:
I wanted to bring real-world experience and provide top-quality advice and advocacy to small businesses and individuals. Our firm brings a practical, common-sense, and goals-oriented approach that enables us to effectively relate and communicate with our clients in a way that they could understand and participate in.
Mr. Bruno attended Saint Leo College where he studied business administration with a concentration in accounting. He then attended Creighton University School of Law in Omaha where he graduated cum laude in 2004.
Licensed to practice in Arizona, Nebraska, Minnesota, Texas, and various federal courts, Mr. Bruno is committed to vigorous legal representation and has successfully fought for clients against the United States of America, the University of Nebraska Board of Regents, the Metropolitan Utilities District, the State of Nebraska, and many other prestigious agencies.
Today, Mr. Bruno represents a large roster of clients including landowners, small businesses, insureds, individuals, and condemnees in eminent domain actions. Whether he is fighting against insurance companies, banks, or the government, he is a determined advocate for his clients and an assertive litigator. With abundant experience in business litigation and eminent domain, Mr. Bruno has become a highly experienced and sought-after lawyer in the Omaha area with excellent reviews from his clients and his peers.
The experienced and diverse team at Sherrets Bruno & Vogt LLC pride themselves on small firm access that yields big firm results. The firm’s award-winning attorneys discuss cases and share ideas freely to ensure the most effective and strategic approach for each and every client. The firm functions with a trial mindset, persistently fighting to get their cases tried in court rather than relying on a settlement that may not be advantageous to the client. Mr. Bruno and his firm prioritize the needs of their clients and remain easily accessible to them throughout the course of their case.
To guarantee the most up to date and efficient legal services, Mr. Bruno keeps his eye on trends and developments in the industry. He comments on his firm's continued efforts to keep up with the quickly-evolving field of law:
The law is constantly changing. Even though we are a small firm, we implement the latest technology, have highly capable and experienced staff, and access to some of the best legal and other databases so we can stay ahead in today’s marketplace and capably assist and advise our clients. We consistently strive toward top legal representation and customer service, two trends that will never become outdated.
Highly regarded by his peers, Mr. Bruno has been retained by other lawyers as an expert witness in litigation, has published articles in legal journals nationwide, and often speaks on the topics of legal malpractice, ethics, boundary disputes, valuation, business acquisitions, and construction law.
