Vic Covalt has over 35 years of experience in the areas of business entities and transactions, litigation, real estate, bankruptcy, construction law, and bond and surety law.
Vic is experienced with secured transactions, deeds of trust, the Uniform Commercial Code, and Creditor-Debtor relations because he began his practice in the bankruptcy court, where the rules matter and a handshake is not “good enough.”
Vic has tried many bench and jury trials and appears regularly in state and federal court cases, particularly in bankruptcy and in corporate dissolution and partnership breakup cases. Vic also designed a program of warehouse lending for mortgage originators which he still maintains for lenders today. Vic is a master of designing simple but effective forms for businesses to use in daily transactions.
Vic has also advocated and achieved reforms in Nebraska’s bankruptcy exemptions scheme and most recently he helped pass election law changes which allow presidential delegation selections by caucus or primary, but which bind delegates to the voters’ selections.
Vic grew up in the Sandhills of Nebraska and brings an honest, hard-working, down to earth attitude to the office every day. Vic was a top scholar in law school. He has a proven ability to transform academic excellence into success in the court room.
Vic has been married to his wife Ann for more than 34 years and he has two daughters and one grandson. Vic’s hobbies include fishing, kayaking, and exploring museums with his grandson.
