We Have The Legal Experience, Knowledge & Dedication Needed To Win Your Case.

We bring to the partnership with our clients, not only a wealth of legal experience and knowledge but also a dedication to fighting for our client with all the strategic talent we have available. The legal tools at our disposal are varied, they include: 


Federal, State & Local Statutes

They include similar Federal, State and local statutes that prohibit an employer from discriminating on the basis of sex, race, national origin, age, disability, religion, pregnancy, sexual preference and retaliation.

Common Law Prohibitions

They also include common law prohibitions against wrongful discharge because an employee exercises certain basic rights like filing a claim for worker’s compensation or objecting to illegal activity by an employer.

And Other Statutes

Other statutes protect employees who exercise their constitutional rights, need family medical leave or are called to activity duty.

Protecting your rights as an employee.

Every employee has the right to work in an environment free of discrimination, harassment and retaliation. When those basic civil rights are violated, we are prepared to apply our experience and insight to restore an employee to their previous position or compensate them for violations of any available Federal, state or local civil rights laws. We also represent employees who need to negotiate or challenge a non-compete agreement or other employment contract.

Our dedication to our clients not only includes extensive investigation of their claims, vigorous presentation of their rights at trial but also an experienced understanding of when to appeal a case.  We have won important victories for employees at trial but also before the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals and the Iowa Supreme Court including most recently Jasper v. H. Nizam Inc. and Lewis v.Heartland Inns of America, Inc.  

While not all terminations or harassment provide a basis for a lawsuit, we are prepared to make an initial evaluation of an employee’s potential claim without charge.  Please call our office and ask to speak to one of our trained staff members who will conduct an initial interview.
