Legal Professionals Celebrate the Best


The Omaha Legal Professionals Association (OLPA) held their annual awards dinner in April, celebrating those making contributions to the legal profession. The newly elected board was announced, and scholarships were awarded to both a high school and a college student with aspirations to pursue studies in the field of law.

The 2017 Boss of the Year is Aaron C. Wegner of Sands Wegner PLC/Husker Law. He was nominated by legal professional Valentina Saavedra who cited not only his unfailing kind and cheerful demeanor but also his courage at facing personal adversity while never being less than 100 percent present for his clients and employees. His law partner, Michael Sands, took home the honor two years ago.

The Legal Professional of the Year is Laura Cejka of Lamson, Dugan & Murray LLP. The Oscar Award, always a surprise until the event, was presented to Lisa Bryan of Dornan, Lustgarten & Troia. The Hon. Joseph Bataillon, senior U.S. District Court judge, was the master of ceremonies and guest speaker.
