Helping Families, Employees and Individuals Get Through Difficult Times

Our top priority is protecting the rights and the legal interests of individuals, employees and families. We are a full-service law firm with a particular emphasis on the following legal areas:

  • Family law — For most people, family law disputes are some of the most difficult and painful experiences they will ever have. Our attorneys understand how complicated a divorce can be, and how emotionally painful it is for most parents to go through child custody, child support and paternity disputes. We work with families to identify the most effective and efficient means to a resolution.
  • Employment law — Losing a job is hard enough, but being unfairly terminated due to issues like discrimination, harassment, a disability or an illness, can leave a person feeling hopeless. Being denied a rightful claim to workers' compensation is equally frustrating and difficult for both the employee and the family that depends on his or her income to survive. Our lawyers have successfully represented the interests of numerous employees, as well as the victims of other forms of civil rights discrimination.
  • Personal injury and wrongful death — Accidents can happen anywhere and anytime. Mounting medical bills, the loss of income and a family struggling to find a way to make ends meet are common factors in most personal injury cases. Our lawyers have successfully represented numerous personal injury and wrongful death suits.
  • MediationMediation is a way to resolve legal disputes outside of a court of law. Many counties in the state of Iowa require couples to use mediation during the divorce process.
