Omaha, NE – Smith Slusky Law has added Omaha Attorney Wayne Rasmussen and Jacob Acers to its ranks, building an even stronger presence in the real estate law arena. Rasmussen brings more than 35 years experience to the firm, with real estate and business law as two of his main areas of practice. Acers is building his practice in business and contract law.
“While Smith Slusky Law has expertise in a wide variety of practice areas, we’re really seeing growth in our business and real estate practices,” says Senior Partner Dan Smith, “so Wayne and Jacob will make a great additions to the team.”
Rasmussen also brings in-depth knowledge and legal experience in estate planning and probate in business, personal and agricultural, which are areas Smith Slusky Law can utilize in the general practice side of the firm.
"We are excited to welcome Jacob to the team," says Clay Rogers, "having new practice builders in the firm is exciting."
"While industry reports show the business end of operating a legal practice has increased in complexity often to the point where it’s possible to spend as much time running the business as servicing the client," Senior Partner Jerry Slusky says, "that is not the case at Smith Slusky Law. To keep things simple, each attorney manages their own book of business while sharing overhead and resources. Consequently, each seasoned, accomplished attorney has more time for substantive client contact and advocacy."
The significant advantage of this model versus many smaller firms and sole practitioners, according to Slusky, is that each individual attorney at Smith Slusky has the ability to collaborate with their peers, and marshal the resources of the entire firm on behalf of their client. “We feel very fortunate to have an opportunity to incorporate such best practices in serving our clients,” says Slusky, “and bringing both Jacob Acers and
Wayne Rasmussen —along with the addition of Real Estate Attorney Tom McLeay last year—is making Smith Slusky Law stronger than ever and will no doubt provide an even better future for the firm.”
