Krista Carlson is a native of Ord, Nebraska. She graduated summa cum laude from the University of Nebraska at Kearney with a Bachelor of Arts in History in 2005. Krista was active in Phi Alpha Theta, the national history honor society, while at UNK and also received the Outstanding Graduate of the Department of History award during her senior year.
Krista graduated with distinction from the University of Nebraska College of Law in 2008. She served as an Executive Editor for the Nebraska Law Review and was a member of the Delta Theta Phi law fraternity.
Krista joined the law firm of Wolfe, Snowden, Hurd, Luers & Ahl as an associate in 2008 and became a partner there on January 1, 2015. While at Wolfe Snowden, she practiced in a variety of areas including railroad defense, insurance defense, municipal law, OSHA defense, landlord/tenant cases, wage claims, family law, and both defending and pursuing personal injury claims (including wrongful death, car accidents and slip and fall cases).
Family law has always been her passion, and increasingly became the focus of her practice during the last few years of her career at Wolfe Snowden. On December 1, 2018, Krista left Wolfe Snowden to begin her own law firm and to concentrate on family law, including divorce, child custody, modification, and contempt cases. She understands the importance of involving the clients in their own case and making the process as transparent as possible. If you are looking for a comfortable atmosphere where you can find qualified and professional legal help, and where you will be invited to understand and contribute to every step of the process, then she is the right attorney for you. She also enjoys the collaborative divorce process where she assists couples who have decided to separate to prepare an amicable settlement of their property and debts, and a parenting plan for their children, without the necessity of litigation.
Krista lives in Ashland, Nebraska with her husband. They have two sons, one of whom is a mechanical engineer, and the other of whom is studying to be a computer and electrical engineer (and who is responsible for this website). Krista and her family love to travel together, garden, sample new restaurants, and spend time at home in Ashland watching scary movies when possible. Krista is a published author and has contributed to the supernatural fiction genre. She has aspirations for continuing her work as an author when time permits.
