  • Benjamin Peter Hayek

    I often refer clients to Paul when in need for a referral, and I do so without hesitation. Paul is trained in collaborative family law and is a certified family law mediator, which only enriches his experience and knowledge of how best to advocate on behalf of clients in what can commonly be very difficult and bitter family law disputes. It is without reservation that endorse Paul Waterman as a detailed, no-nonsense family lawyer and mediator in and around Johnson County, Iowa.
