Top 3 Qualities to look for in Your Attorney

Watch Our Video

We believe your attorney should not speak in legalese

Finding an attorney who is a “real person” can be difficult. Many attorneys surround themselves almost exclusively with other attorneys and are accustomed to speaking in ivory tower legalese.  You should be able to connect with your attorney on a personal level, and he or she should speak to you in plain language that you can understand.  You will be working very closely with this person on issues that are very important to you. It is important that he or she be down-to-earth and someone that you connect with.

We believe your attorney should be accessible

The most common complaint that clients have of their attorneys is that the attorney is unreachable, does not communicate with them regularly, or does not promptly return your calls.  Your attorney should reach out to you about your case regularly and respond within 24 hours to calls and e-mails.  An open line of communication between you and your attorney is essential to building trust.

Learn how we service your area through our Remote Location Approach.

We believe your attorney should be realistic with you about costs and outcomes

Your attorney’s goal should not be to win at all costs.  Rather, it should be to achieve a favorable outcome for you as efficiently as possible.  It is important that your attorney set realistic expectations at the outset as to the costs you should expect, the concerns that the attorney has about the outcome of your case, and the length of time that you should expect your case to take.

Regardless of the nature of your case, we have an experienced attorney who will focus on your individual needs. Our team of attorneys works closely together, bringing each of their different fields of experience to bear in order to optimize our client care.

Why Our Law Firm?

Benefits of a Comprehensive Law Firm 

Our team of lawyers and paralegals have extensive experience  handling the nuances of your legal matter but also consider how other areas of law might affect your case. We often consider angles that aren’t obvious to an attorney with experience in only one practice area. 

A Law Firm that Handles Simple and Complex Cases 

Some legal issues are quick, requiring fast efficient services. You want those knocked out fast with the most efficient cost possible. But, for more involved cases, we take the time to get it right and work hard to get the outcome you want. 

A Team That Collaborates on Your Case 

We’ve had many legal clients complain that their last firm just didn’t have the resources or understanding to manage their case. Our attorneys regularly communicate across the firm, getting input from several legal professionals without the additional cost. 

Our Skills and Services 

Our skills and experience span decades and many different practice areas. We truly want to provide a comprehensive legal solution for our community. When you’ve got a legal question, we want to be the first law firm you think of because you know you can trust us to have the answers or tell you the next best solution. 

Open Communication 

No one wants to be sitting in the dark, unsure of what’s going on with their case. Part of our core practice model is to regularly update our clients on the status of their case. 

Two Transactions

A local Iowa City family, the Johnsons, were ready to buy their dream home. But the excitement quickly turned to stress when they encountered confusing contract language and unexpected zoning issues. That’s when they called us. We reviewed and negotiated the contract to clarify everything for them so their new home met all their needs and complied with local real estate law.

On the commercial side, imagine a small business owner wanting to move into a new storefront. Commercial leases and potential disputes with developers were a big risk. Our team jumped in to provide full legal oversight, from negotiating the lease terms to resolving a dispute with the construction company, so the business owner could focus on growth not legal issues.

Whether personal or commercial, real estate transactions are big deals. Our law firm wants every step of your real estate journey to be clear, secure and successful. By working with us, you get legal representation and a partner to help you achieve your real estate goals. Let us help you build a strong foundation in Iowa City real estate.

Risks of Not Using an Attorney When Buying or Selling Commercial Real Estate

Buying or selling a commercial property can be a much more complex endeavor than the sale or purchase of a home. There are several issues that can arise during the process of buying, selling, financing, and developing commercial property, and trying to navigate the process alone, or even with the help of a commercial real estate agent can be ulcer-inducing. Commercial real estate purchases also have many more laws and regulations than buying a home, all of which must be followed for the transaction to be valid.
