Down To Business:

On today’s episode of Just Biz, Omaha Style we’re talking with LeRoy Peterson with LeRoy Peterson law. He’s originally from Nebraska and has lived in Omaha since 1992 with his wife and two daughters.

In today’s podcast, LeRoy explains why he wanted to do estate planning and elder law and why he wants to help people instead of large companies.

“My natural desire is to plan and maximize whatever it is that I’m doing,” he said. “I just love that planning process. It brings me fulfillment to help individuals … plan and get through probably the most difficult parts of their life.”

His law firm has seen a lot of changes in 2020 due to the pandemic, but it has grown. He currently has three employees.

“It has been a pretty good year for us from a business perspective. People still need to plan for their estates,” LeRoy said. “We’re still seeing a steady stream of new clients.”

Some of those new clients want to get their affairs in order because of the fear and uncertainty surrounding COVID-19. Using his company’s processes, procedures and checklists, he helps clients navigate difficult decisions.

“It feels like I’m supposed to be doing what I’m doing right now,” said LeRoy.
