Cheri is an employment law attorney who focuses on conducting external workplace investigations for employers. Cheri’s impartial investigations consider a broad range of issues such as discrimination, harassment, bullying, performance issues, violations of employer policies, misuse of employer resources, and other related matters. Cheri also conducts workplace investigations to complete cultural assessments for employers.

While employers can conduct internal investigations, certain situations require an external investigation. In those instances, Cheri devises an investigative plan specific to each situation and conducts a prompt, fair, and thorough investigation. After the investigation is complete, she provides a comprehensive report outlining the allegations, the response to the allegations, an analysis of the information, and the resulting findings and conclusions. The goal is to identify and resolve any workplace issues short of litigation.

Cheri follows best practices in conducting her investigations, which she refined through her attendance at the Association of Workplace Investigators’ one-week Training Institute where she earned her AWI certificate (AWI-CH).

In addition to workplace investigations, Cheri also assists clients with employment issues such as non-compete agreements, severance agreements, and discrimination claims. She has represented clients on various types of discrimination claims at both the administrative level and in subsequent state and federal litigation.

A native of South Dakota, Cheri graduated from the University of Nebraska and the Nebraska College of Law. Cheri serves on the Board for the Helpline Center, and has a personal goal to help reduce the stigma surrounding mental health. She and her husband have two children, and they enjoy playing sports, traveling, and cheering on the Huskers.
