I grew up in Norfolk, Nebraska and graduated from Norfolk Senior High School in 1986. I walked-on at the University of Nebraska to play football as a place-kicker and punter. I graduated with a BA degree from UNL in 1990 and began shortly thereafter in the MBA program. I began my legal education in 1992 at the Thomas M. Cooley School of Law associated with Michigan State University. Seeking to get back to my Midwestern roots, I transferred to the Washburn University School of Law in Topeka, Kansas where I graduated in 1995.
Upon passing the bar exam in the State of Nebraska in September 1995, I opened the Law Office of Todd D. Bennett as a general practitioner. On May 6, 1996 I joined the Rehm Law Firm as an associate and became a partner in December 2000. In May 2016, I celebrated 20 years here at Rehm, Bennett, Moore, Rehm & Ockander P.C., L.L.O. I specialize in workers’ compensation and personal injury cases and have significant courtroom experience with over several hundred trials. I also have courtroom experience in social security disability administration hearings, unemployment law hearings and Federal Court cases dealing with COBRA law and wage and hour claims. In 2007, I obtained my bar admission in the State of Iowa and practice workers’ compensation in the State of Iowa as well.
In all my legal endeavors and community activities, my favorite thing is spending time with my three sons.
