C. Thomas White is an AV rated attorney and was born in 1928. Following service in the United States Army, he returned from Japan and graduated first in his 1952 class at the Creighton School of Law. He served as Platte County Attorney for ten years, and at the same time maintained an active civil practice. In 1965, he was appointed to the Nebraska District Court which serves as the primary trial court in this state. In 1976, he was appointed to the Nebraska Supreme Court and sat as a judge on that court until 1994. At that time, he was appointed Chief Justice of the Nebraska Supreme Court and so served until his retirement from the bench in 1998. In the course of his career, he has participated in, or presided over, literally thousands of trials. As a Judge of the Supreme Court for twenty-two years, he wrote or participated in the writing of thousands of legal opinions which collectively embody the great majority of all working legal precedent in the State of Nebraska.  


Since joining the firm, he has written a number of briefs and legal opinions, argued in the appellate courts of this state, and successfully co-chaired significant trials in which complex issues such as medical malpractice, fraud and breach of contract were at issue.  


C. Thomas White remains very active in the day-to-day work of the firm. He acts as a "second chair" attorney in trials, and devotes a great deal of time reviewing and offering advice on legal opinions issued by this and other firms who seek his assistance in complex legal matters. He also acted, and continues to do so, as a mediator in numerous mediations along with acting as an appeal officer in grievance claims involving the State of Nebraska.
