Adoption proceedings
Jesse represented our son during an ugly adoption proceeding. He was able to get and use information from people that others over looked. He seemed quite and reserved until trial began where he morphed into a TV style criminal defense lawyer that asked all the right questions and got the answers we needed. I highly reccomend him if you need to win!

Highly Recommend
I was recently in Iowa on a business trip and, after an evening out, was falsely accused of some pretty terrible things and arrested. I lost my job and was a complete mess. Jesse doubled as my therapist at times and was even willing to get on the phone with my wife on a few occasions when she was freaking out. He did a terrific job explaining how the system works in Iowa so we knew what to expect as well as what his multi-facetted plan was for dealing with these charges. He has clearly been doing this for a long time and is very professional and experienced. Fortunately for me, his investigator was able to uncover evidence that showed that at least part of the story my accusers had told police was not truthful and Jesse negotiated a very favorable plea agreement where the most serious charges against me were dismissed. I feel that I have a much brighter future ahead of me because of Jesse's hard work and I would recommend him to anyone.
