The BEST criminal attorney in the state of Iowa!! He turned a felony into a misdemeaner.
I found him to be very upfront and honest and tells you what to expect. There are no secrets. He doesn't judge you and treats you with respect. I found the best thing to do with him as an attorney is after you hire him, leave him alone and let him do his thing. He will contact you when he needs things. The only thing you have to do is work to pay him. LOL. He carries himself well in the courts and is confident. Why shouldn't he be? I, personally, will never go to another attorney again in my life except him. Then, again, I don't want to meet him again on a professional level. In all seriousness, if you have a problem that needs an attorney specializing in criminal defense or OWI I feel that he is the best in the city. He took a felony charge and was able to get it down to a misdemeaner. THAT speaks volumes about his abilities as an attorney.
