Top 3 Qualities to look for in Your Attorney

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.

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.

Employees and Independent Contractors in Iowa

There are distinct differences between being an employee and an independent contractor. In this article, our Iowa employment attorneys discuss why knowing which one you are is important for both the worker and the company, what factors the courts look at when making a decision, and penalties for miss-classification. To determine the difference between an employee and an independent contractor, ask yourself the following questions:

  • How much will the employer control the work being done?
  • What skill is needed to perform and complete the desired work?
  • Who supplies the tools, equipment, and place of work for the project?
  • How will the worker be paid? By time? (Hourly), a percentage, or a lump sum?
  • Is the work part of the regular business of the employer?
  • Is the work usually performed without supervision from the employer?
  • Is there a specific time-frame for the work to be completed?
  • Will there be consistent and similar work for an undetermined period of time?
