The Chaloupka Legacy in Nebraska
Attorney Maren Lynn Chaloupka has been in law since she was 11 years old, when she began working in her dad’s office and would often travel with him visiting clients across Nebraska. Bob Chaloupka was revered for his powerful courtroom presence and for taking on cases that other lawyers believed couldn’t be won.
Not only did he wholeheartedly embrace fighting for the underdog – and being the underdog himself – Bob obtained Nebraska’s first million-dollar jury verdict in a personal injury case. He is believed to be the first trial lawyer in Nebraska to secure both a million-dollar verdict and an acquittal in a first-degree murder case.
The Bob Chaloupka Trial Skills Seminar
Though he died in 2009, Bob’s legacy lives on through Maren, the Chaloupka family, and the annual Bob Chaloupka Trial Skills Seminar, a continuing legal education program that celebrates, educates, and strengthens client service in the courtroom. Bob himself loved mentoring young lawyers. He especially enjoyed watching them learn, seeing them get excited about doing important work, and congratulating them as they became really, really good at it.

Bob’s memory is celebrated by many in Scottsbluff, in Nebraska, and across the country. Like her dad, Maren tries cases in cities large and small, in Nebraska and beyond – but she is forever honored to call Scottsbluff home.
