Biographical Notes:

design element

Ms. Van Horne is the first female in Nebraska to be accepted into the National Academy of Distinguished Neutrals.  She has successfully mediated a wide variety of disputes, including disability discrimination claims, personal injury claims, gender discrimination claims, wrongful death claims, invasion of privacy claims, defamation claims, medical malpractice claims, estate claims, landlord/tenant disputes, and contract disputes, among others.

A second-career lawyer, her experience as a public school teacher, combined with extensive experience litigating personal injury, products liability and insurance coverage disputes, give her the unique ability to both educate parties on how a case will progress to verdict and provide valuable support in reaching success in mediation. 

Ms. Van Horne is on the panel of approved mediators for the United States District Court for the District of Nebraska.

Ms. Van Horne has served as an adjunct instructor at Creighton University Law School teaching Alternative Dispute Resolution. She regularly performs pro bono mediations as an affiliated mediator with the Concord Mediation Center.
