Inc. 5000

Q: What is Hilgers Graben?

A: We are a group of attorneys who were tired of the old, big law firm model that raised rates year-after-year and charged for inexperience.

Q: What kind of attorneys am I working with at Hilgers Graben?

A: The same attorneys you would find at big law firms across the country. Our litigation attorneys went to top law schools, clerked for federal appellate judges, and have worked at some of the biggest and best law firms in the country. 

Q: What kind of disputes can you help me with?

A: We can assist with a variety of different matters, but our bread-and-butter are complex litigation cases, patent litigation, commercial disputes, trade secret litigation, investigations, and the like. We try cases in courtrooms around the country and in arbitration, too.  Send us an email ( or give us a call (402-218-2106) and tell us about your dispute and we can discuss how we can help you.

Q: What does Hilgers Graben charge?

A: Our rates are far less than the average billable rate for comparable background and experience at a big firm—up to 50-70% less, in some cases.

Q: How can you charge so much less?

A: We can charge less because we have eliminated much of the non-legal overhead many firms have. When you work with us, you're only being charged for our expert legal services, and not the cost of a fancy, fortieth-story office space.    

Q: This sounds too good to be true. What's the catch?

A: No catch. Innovation and technology are disrupting all kinds of industries; it's just taken some time to reach the legal industry. Don't just believe us, believe our clients. We work for some of the biggest clients in the country, and we can put our skills to work for you.
