Firm Overview

Our firm has been engaged in the general practice of law for over a century, by choice. We find the general practice to be challenging and fulfilling. We value each and every client, and treat clients with the respect they deserve. Because most clients have varying legal needs, at different times, our experience in the general practice enables us to effectively and efficiently meet those needs as they arise.

We handle legal problems in every area of the general practice, except bankruptcy. Frequently we will complete one legal service for a client only for the client to request our services in another area of the law. We are pleased to be able to provide our clients with a full range of legal services.

Our office building is located in Fort Madison, Iowa, across the street from the Lee County Courthouse. Our contact information is:
