425 2nd SE St, STE 900, Cedar Rapids, IA 52401


My grandparents taught me about providing personalized customer service when I worked at their produce business as a boy. I later used those skills to guide me in the automobile business and I continue to use those skills to serve my clients. Each time that I undertake a matter for a client, I understand that the matter is of the utmost importance and I focus my efforts on providing a level of service that I would desire myself. In short, I always strive to do my best for each client with the goal of satisfying the client’s needs in a manner that exceeds expectations. My father was a career military non-commissioned officer. I was born in Waterloo, Iowa and lived in a number of other states. I was fortunate to have the opportunity to attend the Overseas School of Rome for all but one year of high school. I have had the opportunity to serve on numerous boards, including various bank boards, Cedar Rapids Opera Board, the State Board of Regents and The Berthel Fisher Company. I use my extensive business experience as a twenty-two year automobile dealer operator and franchise-holder of the Chevrolet, Mercedes-Benz and Volvo franchises as well as my other business experience to counsel my business clients. I graduated from the University of Iowa College of Law, receiving my Juris Doctorate in 1995 with distinction.
