I am a Trial Lawyer. 99.9% of my clients are beyond satisfied. If a case is winnable I can win the case and I do so by caring about my clients and treating them like family, caring about them, and learning their human story.I am 39 years old and have a success record like nobody else at this stage of my career. I attribute this to hard work and being willing to take on battles that nobody else would. Because I am a trial lawyer I get top dollar settlements for my clients because the defense and insurance companies know that I will take a case to trial. If you ever want to speak to clients I have represented I can provide a list and you can ask them questions about how I have helped change their lives. I am licensed in Iowa, Minnesota, and California. I am a member in good standing with all State Bars.
I was on 2 years of probation with the California State Bar for problems that occurred in my previous California office back in 2007 (more than 7 years ago) after I suffered through the death of one of my children. That had nothing to do with my skills as a trial lawyer in the courtroom. I learned greatly from that experience and am a much better lawyer and business person because of it. The full story of that is at calbar.org and I would welcome anybody who wants to know more to read the decision.
Personally, I enjoy being a husband and father, paddle boarding, scuba diving and teaching trial skills to other lawyers. I am a published author, the book is Trial By Human which you can find on Trialguides.com. I am part of a great law firm in California (Carpenter, Zuckerman & Rowley) and also regularly team up with my wife Courtney Rowley who is also a Trial Lawyer.
