Best Law Firm
After my wife passed suddenly earlier this year, I contacted 4 different local Law Firms about what I needed (one being the legal adoption of my disabled step daughter). Tim was the only one that didn’t give me the “run-a-round”. After discussing some of the legal things I needed to accomplish, Tim informed me of a couple of other things that also needed to be taken care of. He took the time to get to know my stepdaughter and I and insured that we were both well informed on all of the aspects of our situation. I found Tim to be quite knowledgeable, and his dedication and professionalism were, to say the least, outstanding. Everything that I needed was taken care of within 2 months. I found his fees to be quite reasonable and would HIGHLY recommend his services to anyone needing legal assistance.

Great Lawyer
Tim provided excellent legal advice and services for my recent divorce. He is very knowledgeable about the process and has great relationships with others within the local legal system. The situation of my divorce was very difficult and Tim provided great support and service to meet the needs for an outcome both parties could agree upon. Tim's role was crucial in bringing my divorce to the finish line. Tim was conscientious about costs and provided his expertise in my decision-making in order to minimize additional unwanted costs. I would highly recommend Tim's services to anyone in need. All in all, I am extremely satisfied with the result.

Excellant Lawyer
Tim represented me for my divorce. Tim spent the time preparing my case for trial as I was fighting having to PAY alimony. We won the case and I was very relieved that he spent endless hours preparing for trial. Tim was very knowledgable of the law and he was able to present my case in obviously a winning fashion. Thank You Tim for your assistance in winning the case.

Great Lawyer
Timothy Ament was a great lawyer for me. He was honest, personable, and well prepared. Tim did very well representing me, cautioned me when necessary, and fought hard for me to achieve my desired end goal. I would recommend Tim to anyone whom needs a good lawyer.

Would Definitely Recommend
I was involved in a car accident in June 2016. Tim came to the hospital to meet me with to review my case. He was very helpful and extremely knowledgeable. He was always there when I needed to vent about my frustration regarding my case and always kept me in the loop of how the case was coming along. He was quick to respond to my emails and phone calls. I would definitely recommend Tim if you are looking for a firm lawyer who will defend you and who will explain things to you in a timely matter.

Excellent attorney
Our first meeting with Tim Ament goes back to 2012. At that time we were just asking questions about grandparents rights. Unfortunately we found out that grandparents rights in the state of Iowa were pretty weak and that the biological parents were in full control of the child's contact with grandparents. Over the years following this visit we researched grandparents rights through other agencies and felt we fell into a large group of people who were denied access to their children and grandchildren. We had actually come to the conclusion we would have to wait to see our grandson when >he -turned 18 and was of legal age to make his own decisions. Years went by with no contact with our grandson. We approached the Ament law firm with new information and he looked at our case and felt it was well worth us pursuing, guardianship of our grandson. He was upfront with us and that it was not going to be easy. We were so grateful that he was willing to take on the case, primarily for the welfare of our grandson. His staff and his handling of the case was flawless. We were informed of every move and the appointment of a guardian ad litem for our grandson was perfect. We would highly recommend the services provided by Tim Ament and staff to anyone needing legal services.
