The members of the firm began practice together in 1994 under the law firm known as Cohen Vacanti Higgins Shattuck. Attorneys Chris Vacanti and Kelly Shattuck have formed a new firm now known as Vacanti Shattuck.
Our exclusive focus on family law
Experience and depth of knowledge make a world of difference in the quality of service a lawyer is able to provide to a client going through a divorce or custody proceeding. Since 1994, our attorneys have focused exclusively on family law. Limiting our practice in this way allows us to provide our clients the most effective representation. Our practice involves issues related to divorce, including division of property, alimony, child support and custody.
Active members in Nebraska’s legal and civic communities
Our attorneys are active in the Nebraska State Bar Association and the Family Law Section of the Bar Association. Christopher Vacanti was chair of the Family Law section in 2007 and 2008 and Kelly Shattuck was an executive member of the family Law section in 2005 and 2006. They have both been members of the State Bar Executive Committee for Family Law, and all our attorneys have served as presenters in family law workshops for members of Nebraska’s legal community. Members of the firm have been regular guests on Omaha radio and television programs, including the Todd N Tyler Morning Show on Z92.
Serving mothers, fathers, husbands and wives
Our clients include mothers, fathers, husbands, wives, parents who have never been married, married persons seeking divorce and couples preparing for marriage. Since our firm’s early years, our attorneys have been strong advocates for the rights of parents and children, and were instrumental in resolving traditional inequities in family law. As a result, they became known to many as the Nebraska father’s rights lawyers.
