Our Roots

Our roots go back to the mid-1800s, when John C. Bills began the practice of law in Davenport. Albert Hamann and Edward Doerr continued the practice, and the firm was known as Doerr and Dower from 1946 to 1957 after James Dower joined the firm. In 1957, the name became Doerr, Dower & Rehling.

Also in 1957, David Stanley began to practice law in Muscatine and established his own firm. The firm grew consistently and acquired the Wilton practice of Gillett and Gillett in 1982.

In November 1987, we combined the professional practices of the Davenport firm of Rehling, Lindburg and Gosma and the Muscatine firm of Stanley, Lande, Coulter & Nepple. This merger blended the experience and specialties of two well-established firms.
