Our clients are very important to us and our goal in every case is to make their lives better at the end of the case than at the beginning. We do a good job of achieving that goal. The practice we have constructed takes on many different types of cases that include personal injury, workers' compensation, malpractice, lottery claims, defending professional licenses (doctors, nurses, pharmacists, chiropractors, lawyers, accountants, etc.), property cases, criminal defense, breach of contract claims, farm litigation, agricultural law, commercial property disputes, unemployment claims and an assortment of other legal work for people who need our help. We work with several attorneys across the state of Iowa and out-of-state who refer litigation work to us for all kinds of legal claims. Our goal is to keep them involved so they too can earn a fee. We do enjoy an ecclectic practice.
Here you will find some of our results, I say some because I've been doing this for over thirty-years and have recovered over $15,000,000 for injured people. When I started practicing law in 1981 we didn't even use computers, but we do now and we will begin listing our legal accomplishments for clients. We now have a YouTube Channel and a daily blog along with Q&A's. But what I have found the telephone is still the best tool to find out if you have a problem we can help you to resolve.
If you read about a result that pleases you let us know and if we can help you with your legal problem contact us using the contact form or simply call our office.
DISCLAIMER: The results are specific to the facts and legal circumstances of each of the clients' cases and should not be used to form an expectation that the same results could be obtained for other clients in similar matters without reference to the specific factual and legal circumstances of each client's case.
