Scottsbluff, Nebraska Criminal Defense Attorneys

Ensuring an aggressive fight for your freedom

We understand that being charged with a criminal offense can be stressful and frightening.  A conviction can result in imprisonment and a criminal record that could affect educational and career opportunities.  If you have been charged with a crime, you need a skilled, experienced criminal defense attorney as soon as possible. Criminal defense is a specialized area of legal practice. Knowledgeable, effective legal representation can make
an important difference in the outcome of your case.

We have successfully represented clients who have been accused of serious crimes, such as weapons violations, drug possession and distribution, sexual misconduct, embezzlement, fraud, domestic violence and drunk driving offenses.

The attorneys at Douglas, Kelly,  Ostdiek, Ossian, Vogl, and Snyder are familiar with criminal proceedings in both state and federal courts.  We represent  clients in the following areas:

If you have been charged with a felony, it is essential to have an experienced criminal defense attorney zealously defend you in court. Felonies are extremely serious crimes and have serious consequences.  A  convicted felon could be sentenced to serve at least one year in a state or federal prison, and may be committed for life.  In addition, convicted felons are stripped of many of the rights guaranteed to American citizens, including the right to vote, the right to travel out of the country and the right to own a gun.  Convicted felons also have to disclose their crimes on job applications, and can be deported if they are not American citizens.

How you handle a felony charge can make the difference between freedom and incarceration.


Misdemeanors are crimes punishable by less than one year in prison and may include such offenses as driving under the  influence, disorderly conduct, simple assault, shoplifting and trespassing.  Although misdemeanors are less serious than felonies, having a misdemeanor conviction on your criminal record can limit your employment options and require you to spend time in jail.  Let our attorneys represent you and ensure that you receive a fair trial.

Motor Vehicle Offenses
If you  have been charged with operating a vehicle under the influence of drugs or alcohol, driving with a suspended license or committing vehicular manslaughter, the attorneys at Douglas, Kelly, Ostdiek, Ossian, Vogl, and Snyder can help put you back in the driver’s seat.  We also assist clients in restoring their drivers’ licenses and fighting traffic tickets.

Drug Crimes

Being charged with trafficking, distributing, or possessing illegal substances or paraphernalia can result in heavy fines and extended time in jail. You can  rely on our knowledge of drug crimes and our history of successful results to  help you minimize or eliminate the charges against you.
