Rethinking Legal Services

Community Law Office believes the legal services industry can and should be better.  Negative public perception of lawyers is at an all-time high.  The steep cost of legal representation means most people can't afford to hire a quality attorney.  We strive to create change by responding to our clients' needs, participating in community improvement, and rethinking the practice of law.

An Innovative Approach

From the initial consultation to the end of trial, every Community Law Office client has a team of experienced legal professionals working for them.  Our firm is driven by a desire to innovate and refine our practices to be as efficient as possible while getting the best results for our clients.  We take advantage of cutting edge technology to streamline file management, research new legal theories, and quickly resolve cases.  Every client has access to an online Client Portal where they can review documents, case filings, and communicate with Community Law Office staff.  We compile and use data on jury verdicts, judge rulings, and even opposing attorneys to plan and prepare case tactics and unexpected legal arguments that work.  To do our part to preserve natural resources, Community Law Office is one of the only entirely paperless law firms in Iowa.  Like everything else, the practice of law is evolving.  We believe no lawyer can truly serve their clients without offering the most advanced representation possible.  We lead through innovation and win by working together.
