I take the time to listen to your concerns. I will make sure you have a plan to protect the things that are most important to you. We set the tone of your case from the very beginning. We will work together to explore your options and find solutions.

I started my own practice in 1993 after spending three years as a prosecutor. Over the past 20 years, I have handled a number of cases in the civil and criminal courts of Iowa. With experience as a prosecutor and defense attorney, I know how to handle cases from both sides of the court and I know what to expect from the opposition.

Practice Areas

I am dedicated to protecting the rights of my clients above all else. I handle cases in a wide range of practice areas, including:

  • Family law: If you are going through a divorce, I will make sure you come up with a plan that protects your children and your financial future.
  • Criminal law: As a former prosecutor, I am ready to protect your rights in court. I handle felonies and misdemeanors in Iowa state courts, including DWI, drug crimes and assault.
  • Bankruptcy: If you are tired of struggling with debt or looking for a way to save your home from foreclosure, Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy may be right for you.
  • Personal injury: Have you been seriously injured in a slip-and-fall or motor vehicle accident? Let me get you the financial and medical help you deserve.



Do not wait to start protecting your rights. I represent clients all across southwest Iowa. My office is open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays, but I also offer evening and weekend hours by appointment. Contact me today to schedule a free initial consultation.
