With the Vriezelaar, Tigges, Edgington, Bottaro, Boden & Lessmann Law Firm, you get the experience of a large firm with the compassion and attention to detail that is only found by smaller firms. We understand hiring a lawyer is an important decision and usually only happens when something unexpected occurs. Our goal is to get you the best possible result as quickly as possible, so you can get on with your life. The Vriezelaar, Tigges, Edgington, Bottaro, Boden & Lessmann Law Firm is a general practice firm and can handle nearly any of your legal issues. If your issue is outside the practice of the firm, we will help you find an attorney who can assist you.
A little bit more about me on a personal side - I am a native of Decatur, Nebraska, and I moved to Sioux City with my family after graduating law school. I have worked in the Courts of Iowa, Nebraska, and South Dakota representing businesses and individuals in a wide-range of matters - from simple to complex. The diverse nature of my experience means I have handled simple disputes in small claims, as well as complex issues reaching the state Supreme Court - and everything in between.
After working in a larger firm for several years, I began my own firm so I could better serve the clients I wanted to without the constraints that come with larger firm. In 2021, we merged with the Vriezelaar, Tigges, Edgington, Bottaro, Boden & Lessmann Law Firm and remain dedicated to providing the highest quality counsel and advocacy for the benefit of our clients. I now practice in a wide-range of areas, including criminal law, family law, juvenile law, personal injury, and workers' compensation. Contact me for a free consultation. If I can't help you, I will find somebody who can.
When not working, my time is spent with my family, attending school functions, baseball games, and whatever else the kids are into at any given time. I am also an unabashed Yankee and Husker fan.
