Attorney at Law
Teaching high school and coaching young athletes, David Pontier experienced firsthand how families are impacted when there is a separation, a divorce, or a move to a new home. When he decided to pursue a career in law, helping people who were struggling was his motivation, and family law was his dedicated focus.
“When people are at the roughest point in their lives, they deserve top-notch advocacy together with a shoulder to lean on,” David said when asked why being a family law lawyer inspired his commitment.
David received his law degree with highest distinction from the University of Nebraska College of Law. In addition to being a Marvin & Virginia Schmid Honor Scholar, he was the recipient of the Best Oral Advocate Award, and attorney advocate national champion and mediation national runner-up in the International Academy of Dispute Resolution National Competition, and earned multiple CALI Excellence for the Future Awards. David received his Bachelor of Science degree magna cum laude from the University of Nebraska at Omaha.
David was an executive editor of the Nebraska Law Review. He authored Tie Goes to the Primary Caregiver: The Misapplication of the Primary-Caregiver Preference in Rommers v. Rommers and Child Support Guidelines in 50 State Statutory Surveys. He has been admitted to the prestigious international Order of the Coif.
At the end of the day, David believes that doing as much as he can for you during perhaps the most challenging time of your life is as fulfilling as work can be.
