Why Choose Us

We recognize that our clients have chosen us from a wide field of experienced attorneys. When their trust is placed in us, we do our utmost to make sure that it’s justified. Here are some of the reasons clients choose Mullin & Laverty, LC and refer their family and friends to us.

Experience.

It’s often said that there’s no substitute for experience, and nowhere is that more true than in the practice of law. Our combined forty years of experience mean that we have in-depth knowledge of the intricacies of Iowa family law and state and federal criminal law. We are familiar with the workings of the court system and can offer you the confidence that you will have the best possible guidance through the legal process.

Collaboration.

In most law firms, lawyers have “their” files. At Mullin & Laverty, LC, both partners are involved with all files, offering our clients the benefit of not only our combined experience but two perspectives on every issue. This team management of files also improves client access to an attorney when they need to communicate with us.

Technology.

Mullin & Laverty, LC was one of the first law firms in Iowa to have a website and we continue to stay abreast of technological developments that can enhance our practice. Technology enables us to work more effectively, efficiently and economically, and it opens channels of communication between us and our clients. In addition, technology has changed the way evidence and information is gathered in both criminal and family law cases. We know that in order to serve our clients well, we have to understand how technology can be used against them, and how it can protect them.

Compassion.

We never let the intricacies of a case blind us to the fact that the client sitting across from us is a real person whose life is being deeply changed by the legal situation they’re facing. It’s critical to us that our clients feel that we understand what they are going through, that we will take the time to listen, and that even when the outcome is less than ideal, we are always on their side.

Having to deal with a legal problem consumes your precious time. Getting to your attorney should not. Our suburban office is conveniently located right off Interstate 380 and we have plenty of free parking.
