Dylan Dam

Associate Attorney

Associate Attorney Dylan Dam works on a wide variety of estate planning and estate/trust administration matters, including Wills, Financial Powers of Attorney, Health Care Powers of Attorney, Living Wills, Revocable Trusts, court filings, and more. A native Nebraskan, Dylan earned a degree in agricultural education from the University of Nebraska in Lincoln and received his Juris Doctor from the University of Nebraska College of Law. As he began his job search during his senior year of law school, Dylan reached out to Rachel Truhlsen, his parents’ estate planning attorney and a long-time friend of the family. Rachel invited Dylan to join the firm in May 2020. Dylan enjoys the variety of his work, the small-town environment in Blair, and the ability to get to know the firm’s clients.
