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.

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.

Further Reading from our Polk County Breach of Contract Attorneys

Contracts and Cancellations Due to COVID 19 in Iowa

In this video, our Polk County breach of contract attorneys explain how the Iowa Supreme Court defines force majeure provisions as a clause that “allocate(s) the risk if performance becomes impossible or impracticable as a result of an event or effect that the parties could not have anticipated or controlled.” The Iowa Supreme Court noted that these clauses aren’t intended to shield a party from normal risks associated with an agreement. A small number of courts have actually analyzed the application of force majeure provisions to the current Covid-19 pandemic and the rulings have been split. Most of the split has come due to the language of the clause within the contract. Should the clause be broadly defined, you may be able to terminate and walk away from your contract.

How Much Time Do I Have To Back Out of a Contract In Iowa?

In this video, our Polk County breach of contract attorneys explain canceling a contract after it’s been signed, the FTC’s “three-day rule,” and how the ability to cancel depends on the industry or item being sold. For purchases above $25 made in the home or at your place of work, you have the right to cancel the contract within three business days as long as the transactions are purchased, leased or rented primarily for personal, family or household reasons. “Buying clubs” are membership groups that allow you to buy certain goods and services at a discount. The three-day policy should apply to all types of buying clubs. Suffice to say, be cautious and read the contract thoroughly with any business opportunity. In Iowa, the three-day cancellation period also covers the sale of a business opportunity regardless of the location where the sale took place. The business opportunity must include an initial investment of $500 or more and the seller must agree to provide the materials, goods, education, etc that the buyer needs to start the business, as well as follow Iowa law with regard to business opportunities and franchises. Timeshares often tout their own cancellation policies as part of the high-pressure sales pitch, but generally, you have 5 business days to cancel a timeshare contract after the seller delivers all the information concerning the assets and liabilities of the timeshare estate.
