Kissel, Kohout, ES Associates LLC is proud of the exceptional representation of our clients before Nebraska state government - including our Unicameral. We maintain constant contact with senators, our constitutional officers, and their staffs.  We place a high priority in keeping our clients well informed on not only the issues of significance to them, but also how they interrelate to all issues before the Unicameral or within the Executive Branch.

Our approach to the Legislature is that our clients tell the best stories and are the best advocates for what we are trying to achieve. As such, we encourage our clients to make themselves available for the highest priority issues pending before the Unicameral. We happily work with our clients to develop testimony and materials for the committee and coalitions with other interested parties to maximize results.  Much like issues that face any business or association, there is no single way to handle an issue. Each one must be managed differently depending on multiple variables.
