John A. KinneyFounder / Managing Partner

Kinney Law is exactly the kind of law firm John would go to if he was in need of legal assistance. After 13 years of practicing law in various firms in the Omaha area he created KINNEY LAW, PC, LLO, now known as Kinney Mason, PC, LLO, with the goal of providing a new spin how to serve people needing legal counsel and services. Innovation, not tradition with a bend to redefine how he practices law.

Most of John’s clients would be hard pressed to guess that he attended Boston College, where he obtained his Bachelor’s Degree (cum laude) in 1989 with a double major in English and Political Science. From your first meeting with him you’ll feel welcome. His friendly smile and warm sense of humor are genuine. We should also mention that he also attended DePaul University College of Law, Chicago, Illinois, where he obtained his Juris Doctorate Degree in 1994.

A little more about John, he knows his way around the courtroom. He’s been the principal litigator in jury trials in both federal and state courts. He has represented individual clients in personal injury cases, divorces, contract disputes and commercial law matters. Although John has a reputation for winning, he’s most proud of the fact that he has the reputation, among judges and his peers, as being honest, hardworking and someone who truly cares about his client’s outcomes.

John Kinney is the former chair of the Family Law Section of the Nebraska State Bar Association. He has published two articles in the Nebraska Lawyer magazine: A Summary View of Property Division in Nebraska Divorce Cases” (May 2001) and, more recently, “LB654 and the Current State of Joint Custody in Nebraska” (June 2006). He also served as a member of the Child Support Advisory Commission, which issued a report in January 2007 suggesting comprehensive changes to the Nebraska Child Support Guidelines.

In 2007, John Kinney was admitted as a fellow into the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers, an organization devoted to improving the practice of family law attorneys.
