William Kurtenbach

Bill Kurtenbach is competitive defense attorney, fighting for clients facing criminal charges in both State and Federal court. He’s defended clients facing a variety of legal charges, ranging from misdemeanors to felonies. Bill is a winner in the courtroom and does whatever he can to get clients the results they deserve.

Bill’s path to attorney started with his father, who was a criminal defense attorney in his hometown of Columbus, Nebraska. Once Bill saw how his father helped people and how people deeply appreciated the hard work that went into his profession, he decided to follow in his father’s footsteps.

Bill graduated from Briar Cliff University and went on to receive his JD from the University of Nebraska College of Law. Although his career has only just begun, William has already had multiple opportunities to assist his clients. So far, he’s helped his clients escape unfair charges, avoid convictions for harsh accusations, and more.

Success Outside the Courtroom

Some of his great success comes from his background in hard sciences, making him well-equipped for even exceptionally technical criminal defense cases. Furthermore, he’s practiced a policy of total honesty – even if there’s a tough conversation to be had, Bill will tell it to you straight.

As William knows all too well and likes to tell his clients, those who fail to prepare are preparing to fail. To that end, William begins every day motivated to help those in need. Each case is different, so he maintains a flexible and practical mindset so that he can tackle any oncoming challenge.

A Passion for Sports

When he’s not defending his clients’ constitutional rights, Bill loves to participate in sports. In fact, he plays soccer regularly with other enthusiasts in nearby Lincoln and appears regularly on one of the local soccer radio shows. When not kicking a ball around, Bill prefers golf or supporting his favorite team, the Huskers. Fun fact: William is the only attorney at Berry Law that is ambidextrous!

Ultimately, William leaves a lasting impression in the minds of his coworkers and clients, who remember his relentless desire to seek and secure the best results possible in every one of his cases.
