Jeffrey Welch’s Professional Drive

Jeff considers his role as a person’s lawyer “to be a true honor and a privilege.”  He believes in working hard to assist those in need following a traumatic life-altering accident.  Jeff offers his clients access to competent legal advice and the personal attention they deserve.

Jeff’s biggest motivation comes from his clients and the circumstances they are in when they meet with him.  He currently represents injured victims of automobile crashes, defective products, poorly maintained premises, injured workers, and those injured and suffering from medical mistakes.  Understanding there is no replacement for a lost loved one, Jeff remains compassionate with his clients while seeking compensation for them for the wrongful death of their loved one.

Jeff Welch’s approach:

Jeff will make you feel calm and comfortable from the very start, at your initial consultation.  His calm, patient personality allows him to work through the most difficult, often stressful, situations.  It is his respectful approach to those situations and the people involved which provides the greatest opportunity for a positive outcome.  In working with so many victims of wrongful death, traumatic workplace accidents, medical malpractice incidents, and other significant personal injury matters, this Omaha malpractice attorney understands that “every day is a gift.”  Thankful for the gift of each day, Jeff is always in a good mood.

Jeff Welch’s roots:

Prior to the practice of law, malpractice attorney Jeff Welch worked in construction.  This past experience makes him a great fit for workers compensation and personal injury cases, as he understands the hazards of construction sites and the stress of injuries and lack of work due to same.  When asked why he decided to become a lawyer, he says “My father, grandfather, brother, cousins, uncles are all lawyers.  I think it’s our breed.”

Jeff’s outlook on life gives him an open mind to the world and the people in it.  He looks up to “anyone who can perform her or his job with dedication, respect for others and a high ethical code.”

When he can, Jeff likes to get out of the house with his wife, Renee, and their two children.  Looking to extend that every day gift for as many days as he can, he is actively involved in cross fit.  He encourages them to stay active, and leads by his actions through cycling in the spring and fall, snow skiing in the winter, and somehow finding ways to scuba dive despite living in the only triply landlocked state.  When he’s not away from home, he’s likely found in it with hammer in hand, working on another remodeling project.
