Carey Collingham is passionate about helping people recover—physically, emotionally, and otherwise—from the damages done to them by someone else. Carey has personally experienced the devastating impact that injuries arising out of another person’s negligence can have on someone’s life, having suffered an auto accident injury that limited his ability to play music professionally. In response to his own experience, Carey gave up a beloved career in the Nebraska nonprofit community to pursue the study of law. His mission now is to help others find ways to put their injuries behind them and move forward in pursuit of their goals. Carey is committed to vigorously advocating for anyone who has suffered the ill-effects of someone else’s negligent or intentional wrongdoing. Carey also helps  clients defend and protect their goals and interests by using the tools of law to resolve everything from real estate issues to contract disputes, estate planning concerns, administrative or licensing issues, state and local government problems, and firearms-related issues.

Carey Collingham received an undergraduate degree in music performance from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. While in law school, Carey worked as an elected Executive Editor for the Nebraska Law Review. He also serves on the Board of Directors for NextGen Lincoln and the Lincoln Civic Orchestra.

When he is not fighting for his clients, Carey enjoys playing music, teaching cello students, fishing, hunting, playing with his rescue dog, working under the hood of his car, or serving the Lincoln community’s nonprofits.
