MICAH C. HAWKER-BOEHNKE
Micah is an exceptionally bright young lawyer who specializes in litigation and Workers’ Compensation Law, in both Iowa and Nebraska.
Micah received his Juris Doctor from the University of Iowa College of Law in 2019 with numerous accolades in trial advocacy, appellate advocacy, and academic excellence. Even before he passed the bar exam, he appeared in Federal Court, co-signed a brief to the Eighth Circuit, and was one of four students selected to argue a ‘mock’ case before the Supreme Court of Iowa and the entire law school.
Since graduating law school in 2019, Micah has enjoyed great success practicing both Iowa and Nebraska Workers’ Compensation law. Within 2 years of graduating law school, Micah handled three appeals to the Supreme Court of Nebraska. While Micah has exceptional experience handling cases on appeal, he has also been a force to be reckoned with in the Courtroom and at the settlement negotiation table. Micah is passionate about keeping his clients informed and protecting their interests.
