Carlson & Burnett, LLP
Announces New Partners
The Omaha law firm of Carlson & Burnett, LLP is pleased to announce the addition of three new partners – Andrew J. Wilson, Charles L. Grimes and DeAna K. Shaffer – to strengthen its expertise in three of its existing practice areas.
Andrew “Andy” Wilson is an Omaha native and 1991 graduate of the University of Nebraska College of Law with over twenty-five years of criminal and civil litigation experience. After starting his career with a firm in Des Moines, Wilson moved back to Omaha in 1993 to join the Douglas County Public Defender’s office. In that role, his case load included serious felony offenses, including drug trafficking, murder and sexual assault. In 2000, he moved into private practice and built a civil litigation practice focused on personal injury and insurance defense. He has an extensive trial background, including over forty jury trials as lead counsel. In 2013, Wilson was awarded the Jury Trial of the Year award from the Federal Public Defender’s office. He is active in his church, the Millard Rotary Club and Omaha Central Legion Baseball, for which he currently serves as president.
Charles “Charlie” Grimes grew up in Omaha and graduated from the University of Nebraska College of Law in 2011. He has spent the last seven years specializing in family law, including divorce, child custody and court ordered modifications and other post-divorce issues. Grimes’ favorite part of being an attorney is navigating the judicial system, both in and out of the courtroom. He enjoys the nuances of family law and developing the specific strategy that each case requires. His community involvement has included serving as Team Captain of the March of Dimes and chair of the Immigrant Legal Center’s Annual Fundraiser.
DeAna Shaffer is a 1997 graduate of Creighton University School of Law. The early years of her career were spent working in railroad labor relations. Following a hiatus to focus on family and community service, Shaffer shifted direction and returned to the legal profession in the area of trust and estate administration. This practice area reflects Carlson & Burnett’s
commitment to helping clients through all life stages. She understands that navigating the estate process following the loss of a loved one can be overwhelming. She is committed to efficiently guiding clients through this process with dignity and compassion.
