Please do not cold call me without an appointment. Please start by reviewing the descriptions of my services, and then if you're interested in my services for your Iowa legal matter, and...
1. Have general questions about what services I practice, not specific to the facts of your legal issue, or are having technical difficulties navigating the website:
Please Contact Me by webform.
2. If you are a new prospective client and want to tell me about your non-emergency issue and ask what I can do to help you:
Please Request a New Prospective Client Consultation and follow the instructions linked to self-schedule an appointment; I am not able to accept unscheduled phone calls for this.
3. If you are a current client or prior NPCPC recipient and want to talk by phone, please schedule an appointment at the URL specified on your IOLTA payment receipt.
For Emergencies: Read Below and Then if Eligible, Text (319) 343-6841 to Verify Present Availability to Call:
When available, phone consultations without an appointment are offered as fixed fee services for OWI/DUI/Public Intoxication Suspects or Arrestees in an ongoing law enforcement detention, and in any other matter would be an hourly service at a vastly higher rate than for a non-emergency service or the further reduced rate for non-emergency new prospective client phone consults, which are the recommended way to discuss your issue and whether and how my services could help.
Phone (by appointment only unless for emergencies where you're prepared to pay the applicable emergency rate, upfront, instead of making non-emergency appointment for vastly lower cost; Do Not Cold Call Me Otherwise):

The determination of the need for legal services and the choice of a lawyer are extremely important decisions and should not be based solely upon advertisements or self-proclaimed expertise. This disclosure is required by rule of the Supreme Court of Iowa. Memberships and offices in legal fraternities and legal societies, technical and professional licenses, and memberships in scientific, technical and professional associations and societies of law or field of practice do not mean that a lawyer is a specialist or expert in a field of law, nor do they mean that such lawyer is necessarily any more expert or competent than any other lawyer. All potential clients are urged to make their own independent investigation and evaluation of any lawyer being considered.
No attorney-client relationship is formed by using this website or prior to (unless and until) a written representation or unbundled service agreement is executed. Please do not send any information or materials that you wish to remain confidential and/or subject to any privilege to any attorney through this site until you have been approved for an intake and new client consultation, at which point requested information will be treated consistent with the rules of professional responsibility pertaining to prospective clients. The Rules and Privileges for Current and then Former Clients will only attach if and when a written representation or unbundled service agreement has been executed.
Consistent with the Iowa Rules of Professional Responsibility, all online payments collected by this office will be via the LawPay Clearinghouse and will be deposited into a Client Interest on Lawyer Trust Account (IOLTA), where it will remain sequestered until the fee is earned and/or the expenses are incurred per the terms of the service agreement (hourly fees are earned as those hours are spent, even if the matter is ongoing; fixed fees are not earned until the work is complete or the fee is forfeited due to client-initiated termination of the attorney-client relationship or cancellation after substantial work has been performed or I have made reasonable reliance to my detriment, or due to service agreement prohibited client insistence on some action or inaction that I reasonably deem to violate the law or the Iowa Rules of Professional Responsibility), an accounting has been sent to the client, and at least 10 business days pass without receipt of a written bill dispute (or until resolution of such bill dispute). Net Interest Proceeds from Funds in an IOLTA are donated to a state fund to sponsor legal aid for indigent persons. Payments for services that do not need to be scheduled to a fixed timeslot may alternatively be made by check or money order, which would be deposited into the Client IOLTA account similarly. All Rates and Prices Quoted on this Website Must Be the Net Receipt into the IOLTA and Do Not Include Third-Party Clearinghouse Processing Fees For the Method of Payment Used, If Any. Those Fees Should Be Treated as an Immediately Incurred and Nonrefundable Expense, Not an Attorney Fee.
