Our Firm's History
- Since 1938 -

Obenland & Nelson Law Offices has been a stable, reliable provider of quality legal services since the office was started in Glenwood in 1938 by Norvell Callaghan. Callaghan was later joined in his practice by Howard Groven. In 1962, the firm expanded with the addition of C. David Nelson. The firm’s tradition as a stable provider of quality legal services continued with the addition of current partners Bruce Obenland in 1972, and Neil Nelson in 2007. Our continuity assures our clients of an attorney/client relationship that is conscientious, personal and professional.

Part of our long term success in being a stable and reliable provider of legal services is our legal assistants, Daceyn Wentler and Wendy Ingersoll. Their dedication and professionalism has been pivotal to our success as a firm and enables us to provide the best quality legal services to our clients.
