A native Texan, with a heart as big as Texas, Mandy Gruhlkey began her legal career in Omaha after moving to the city to attend law school. Upon graduation, Mandy decided to put down roots in Nebraska after falling in love with the area and people. Currently, Mandy is admitted to practice law in both Nebraska and the state of Iowa.
Mandy proudly joined The Advocates because she believes the law firm shares her passion for helping victims of personal injury recover and obtain justice for the injuries and losses they have suffered. Mandy knows firsthand the substantial damage a sudden car crash or an unfortunate slip and fall accident can have on a victim’s life and finances. Missing even one paycheck due to a personal injury can send a person’s life into a tailspin.
Before joining The Advocates, Mandy graduated Summa Cum Laude from Buena Vista University in Iowa. She then attended the Creighton University School of Law where she was a member of the Advanced Trial Team, the Women’s Law Society, the Inns of Court, and the Public Interest Law Forum. Mandy graduated from Creighton University School of Law with her Juris Doctorate.
Since earning her law degree, Mandy has had a dedicated and accomplished legal career. She has worked on both sides of civil and criminal matters, as a Public Defender and as a Prosecutor, giving her a unique perspective when evaluating most any case. Mandy has also taught legal studies and a paralegal program at Bellevue University and Iowa Western Community College, respectively. She has even briefed and argued twice before the Nebraska Supreme Court and in front of the Court of Appeals, having won all four cases. After participating in dozens of jury and bench trials, Mandy has a lengthy and successful litigation history.
In her free time, Mandy likes to read and cook. She is also an avid archer and fitness enthusiast.
