Our Firm’s Story

Lepant Law Office/Schwab and Lepant is the successor law firm to the Law Offices of Merrell Andersen and the several partnerships he participated in over his 35-year-career as a Nebraska attorney. David Lepant and Cole Bodfield succeed the practice of Ron Schwab, who practiced as a lawyer for over 50 years, and his daughter Linda Bauer, who now serves as Judge Bauer. Dave and Cole strive to carry on the legacy of their predecessors by offering trusted, fairly priced legal services in Southeast Nebraska and Northern Kansas. Dave and Cole devote much of their practice to bankruptcy, estate planning, adoption, taxation, and several other fields in these two states. Our firm’s attorneys are also supported by a skilled team of paralegals and assistants.
