Rick L. Ediger

“Rick knows the devil is in the details. He has served his clients diligently with the same detailed approach for over 40 years. Rick insists on a certain comfort level in all transactions in which he is involved. That attention to detail is what separates Rick from many attorneys. Rick has been on the boards of several community service organizations including representing them at the state and national level. His professional and personal achievements, while serving his clients and involvement in the communities of Scottsbluff, Gering, and the Panhandle region further detail his commitment to the highest of professional standards and client representation.” – Kent Hadenfeldt
