About me

My practice primarily focuses on plaintiff litigation involving personal injury accidents, workers compensation claims, medical malpractice issues, will contests, business and shareholder disputes, securities litigation and FINRA security arbitration.

My experience spans nearly 40 years of representing individuals in state and federal courts in over 20 states. I am a member of the Iowa Academy of Trial lawyers. I am also a retired Army Reserve JAG Colonel and represent clients regarding military legal issues.
