About Jerrad R. Ahrens, Management Partner

Jerrad R. Ahrens enjoys helping others in difficult situations, particularly custody disputes. His most satisfying cases are when the father is awarded custody of his children.

“The norm is for the court to award the mother custody so it is always nice to be able to help a father stay as actively involved in his child’s life as possible,” Mr. Ahrens said.

Mr. Ahrens said he tries to be a calming influence for clients who find themselves in tense and complex situations. It is his job as a family law attorney to make sure his clients have a clear understanding of all potential issues and possibilities.

“This will enable you to make informed decisions and have an active role in your case,” he said.


Mr. Ahrens is licensed in Nebraska and Iowa and admitted to practice in the United States District Court of Nebraska.


Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and Political Science from Doane College; Juris Doctor from Oklahoma City University. While an undergrad, Mr. Ahrens made the Doane College Dean’s List.

Nebraska Bar Association and Iowa Bar Association.


Mr. Ahrens was profiled in the September/October 2016 issue of The Nebraska Lawyer.

Real-Life Experiences
Reviews from Our Past Clients
“It took years for me to come to a decision to end my marriage. I sought a law firm that is focused and prepared for trial if need be, and seeks to give me the best outcome possible. Cordell and Cordell has performed very well and is very supportive during this difficult time. I have full confidence in my representation and recommend them.”
– Mason B.
“Divorce is hard enough without trying to find a Lawyer who will truly work for you. I had several conversations with Lawyers that seemed only interested in winning somehow. No one wins in a divorce. I should have went to Cordell & Cordell first so I would have avoided a lot of headaches. I met a group of people that genuinely care for you.”
– Mark L.
