When I was a young man, I lived through the turmoil and strain that careless and neglectful behavior can cause. I witnessed, firsthand, the difference a strong lawyer can make in the lives of families who have been touched by tragedy. That is why I am blessed to have become a lawyer, and that is why I take pride in standing up for the rights of injured and mistreated Iowans.
