Stevie Chesterman has a unique history with Hauptman, O’Brien, Wolf & Lathrop, P.C. Before becoming an attorney, she began her legal career as a runner for the firm and later served as a law clerk. Born and raised in Omaha, she attended Westside High School. She then graduated from Saint Louis University in 2018 with a Bachelor of Science degree in business. She earned her law degree from Creighton University School of Law in 2021. While at law school, she was a member of the Advanced Trial team that competed on a national level against other schools, for which she received an Order of the Barrister award.

The daughter of partner Melany O’Brien, Stevie is a second-generation attorney with the firm. “Growing up,” she said, “I was able to see the work my mother did as an attorney and all the good she did to help people. She inspired me to pursue a career in law.”

“I like the fact that as attorneys, we can help people who don’t necessarily know how to help themselves. We can help them navigate really difficult times and take some of the pressure off of what they are going through.” 

Stevie describes her approach to law as determined, hardworking, and creative. “The law isn’t always black and white. You have to find a way to overcome the obstacles you’re facing. This may mean finding ways to interpret and argue the law in a way that isn’t necessarily conventional but helps your clients.”

Stevie’s connection with the community plays an important role in her life. While in college, she worked for a company that helped provide meals to people in need.

A die-hard Cornhuskers fan, she feels great pride going to games. When she isn’t cheering on the Huskers, she likes to spend time with her friends exploring local restaurants and Omaha’s social scene. She is also an animal lover with two cats and a dog; she enjoys taking her chocolate labrador out for long walks in local parks.
