Founded in Omaha, Nebraska in 1975, McGill, Gotsdiner, Workman & Lepp, P.C., L.L.O. is a law firm committed to providing high-quality legal services.

In one of the firm’s early cases, we represented the Nebraska Press Association. The firm argued the case all the way to the United States Supreme Court and, in a landmark ruling on June 30, 1976, the Supreme Court held prior restraints on media coverage during criminal trials are unconstitutional. Nebraska Press Association v. Stuart, 427 U.S. 539 (1976). The Nebraska Press Association case was a defining moment for the firm and propelled it forward.

Unfortunately, one of the firm’s founding partners, Steve McGill, died unexpectedly in 1997. Steve’s influence on the firm is indisputable and still pervasive throughout the culture. Steve didn’t just want to win but wanted his clients to feel good about the results. Steve excelled at identifying what was most important to each party in a dispute and obtaining an outcome that satisfied everyone’s objectives.

The lawyers in the firm today remain committed to simply doing the right thing. They demonstrate the highest level of integrity and ethics. They treat everyone respectfully and give generously to the community. Our lawyers pride themselves on being thoughtfully engaged in our clients’ legal matters. In keeping with Steve’s values, the firm’s current attorneys are client-first focused and ensure that everyone is comfortable with the approach to solving a problem and the outcome. The firm is dedicated to providing legal services and client experiences that are second to none. Our lawyers combine that tradition with modern technology to provide clients with prompt, cost-effective and quality representation.  We represent local, regional and national clients in a broad practice emphasizing commercial and business law.
