Community Spirit

We have a long tradition of service, both to the legal profession and to our communities.

Our lawyers have strong ties and commitments to the communities in which we practice. We are active in civic, charitable, church, and development activities at home and at state and national levels as well. We pitch in when work needs to be done and regularly accept leadership roles in organizations and efforts which make our communities and states better places in which to work and live.

These leadership activities include Chamber of Commerce, United Way, Association of Business and Industry, library boards, state university boards and foundations, economic development, public referendum issues, health associations, leadership programs, State Board of Regents, fund drives, school boards, and countless other efforts.

We also have a long tradition of active involvement in bar association work at local, state, and national levels. Our lawyers have been chosen to lead county bar associations, the Iowa State Bar Association, the ABA Law Practice Management Section, the ABA Coordinating Commission on Legal Technology, and the College of Law Practice Management. We believe that volunteer service to the legal profession results in better professional service to the general public.
