Get To Know Us
Located in Mesquite, Texas, a suburb of Dallas, the Oberg Law Office was founded in 1997 by Gregg Oberg. Mr. Oberg grew up on a ranch in central Nebraska. He graduated from the University of Nebraska in 1984 with his Bachelor’s degree in Agriculture, and then continued on to the University of Nebraska’s law school where he received his Juris Doctorate in 1987. During law school, Oberg worked as a briefing law clerk for the Attorney General Office in the State of Nebraska, where he assisted in the prosecution of criminal appeals, including death penalty cases. After graduation from law school, Oberg first worked for a noted downtown Dallas insurance defense law firm, handling litigation matters for insurance companies. Mr. Oberg then decided to dedicate his career to help in injured people. He was hired to supervise litigation for a major personal injury firm in Dallas, trying many cases to verdict. His duties included supervising a staff of associate attorneys an support staff. Eventually, he decided that such a large firm environment did not allow each client to receive the one on one attention that they needed. Oberg decided to open his own firm, devoted exclusively to personal injury litigation on behalf of the injured.
