Attorneys in Nebraska are aided in collecting compensation for their services by the attorney’s lien statute. The object of the lien statute is to protect the attorney against bad faith and ingratitude by clients, as well as collusion between a client and the adverse party which operates to deprive the attorney of his just compensation. It is the purpose of this article to expose some of the difficulties inherent in the application of the statute, study the arguments which support the various interpretations thereof, and proffer recommendations for the correction and amplification of the statute.
