Family Law

Family law cases vary from adoption to divorce.  These issues are very personal and can often be stressful.  Our firm's goal is to limit those stresses and provide you options to resolve the case in a way that is best for you and your family.  Whether the parties are in agreement, or if you need help negotiating, we are here for you. 


Business Consultation

Being a business owner can be overwhelming.  Often you start a business because you enjoy a particular field, but it is easy to find yourself overwhelmed by the legal decisions you need to make.  Decisions can range from how to structure your business (such as an LLC, Corporation, etc) to having to face employee separation issues.  We are here to help set up your business, get it registered with the government entities, and answer those questions about how the Iowa Law applies to your business.  


Civil Litigation

Whether you were in a car accident or a contract fell through, we are here to assist you with negotiations, settlements or trial.  Insurance companies can be difficult to deal with, so if you need assistance in being made whole, just give us a call.  


Agricultural Law

Our agricultural practice varies from real estate, contracts, lease agreements, trusts, estate planning and much more.  If you have an agricultural issue, we would be glad to sit down and discuss your options.  


Our general practice law firm can provide you with coordinated professional legal services in a variety of disciplines including but not limited to:


Real Estate

The purchase of a home is for most people, the most important and significant investment we make during our lifetimes. Should we take title as joint tenants or tenants in common? What is the difference between a mortgage and deed of trust? What is the difference between title insurance and a title opinion? We can answer these questions for you and explain the advantages and disadvantages for each alternative so you can make an informed choice in this most important area of your life.  We can also examine the title to the land you want to buy and assure you there will be no defects of title when you purchase your home.

Wills, Trusts, Estate Planning & Probate Law


Nearly everyone should have a Will to assure their property is distributed as they wish. A Will is a written document that directs the distribution of your property upon death, states who will care for and distribute that property and can name who cares for your minor children. If you die without a Will, you have no control over where your property goes. I can give you professional advice and guidance necessary to ensure your Will properly carries out your wishes.
