Attorney Profile

Christa Israel is an associate at Atwood, Holsten, Brown, Deaver & Spier Law Firm, P.C., L.L.O. From the firm's office in Lincoln, Nebraska, she divides her practice between workers' compensation and plaintiff's personal injury and wrongful death litigation. In her workers' compensation practice, she assists Nebraska residents who have been injured on the job or have developed an occupational disease to obtain their rightful benefits under their employer's insurance coverage. It is not uncommon for a claim to be disputed or denied by the employer or its carrier, and thus Ms. Israel advocates for her clients when it is alleged that the injury or illness did not occur on the job or that it was related to a pre-existing condition.

Ms. Israel also provides representation to people who have been harmed by the negligence of other parties. The types of cases that she has been involved in this regard have stemmed from premises liability, medical malpractice, nursing home abuse and neglect, and motor vehicle accidents. Ms. Israel has been instrumental in obtaining several sizable settlements and jury awards on behalf of her clients.

A native of North Dakota, Ms. Israel attended Dickinson State University in that state as an undergraduate. Majoring in political science and writing, she received a Bachelor of Arts in 2006. After interning with the then-North Dakota Sen. Byron L. Dorgan, Ms. Israel enrolled at the University of Nebraska College of Law and was awarded her Juris Doctor in 2011. While in law school, she clerked for the predecessor of her current firm. Admitted to practice in both Nebraska and North Dakota, Ms. Israel is also admitted to practice before the U.S. District Court for the District of Nebraska.
