Attorney Profile

Born and raised in Omaha, Nebraska, Elizabeth Stuht Borchers is an attorney at Marks Clare & Richards that is located in her native city. She focuses her practice exclusively on family law and represents clients throughout the greater metropolitan area. Ms. Borchers has been admitted to practice in Nebraska since 1976, and she is also admitted to practice before the U.S. District Court for the District of Nebraska, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 8th Circuit, and the Supreme Court of the United States.

Many of Ms. Borchers’s clients are people whose marriages have irretrievably broken down and who need to deal with such issues as child custody and visitation, spousal and child support, and the division of marital property. She has extensive training and experience in mediation and collaborative law, and thus she is often able to help many of them come to an accord on these matters through the use of those methods of alternative dispute resolution. However, when litigation proves to be necessary, Ms. Borchers will fight vigorously on their behalf before a family law judge.

Ms. Borchers’s family law experience has also included paternity establishment and disputes, the preparation and review of prenuptial agreements, and the enforcement of existing parenting and support court orders for people whose marriages have already been legally dissolved. She is highly regarded by her fellow attorneys, as her “Superb” peer-review rating through Avvo and her Distinguished* peer-review rating through Martindale-Hubbell will attest.

Ms. Borchers is a 1976 graduate of Creighton University School of Law. She is a fellow in the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers and an active participant in numerous professional and community organizations.
