Empowering Wronged Employees

At the Higgins Law Firm, PLLC, we are committed to representing individuals and families throughout Iowa facing challenges of workplace discrimination, harassment, inequality and other matters of employment law. We also assist people confronting criminal charges, accident injuries and other personal injury cases representing plaintiffs.

Protecting Your Rights In The Workplace

For many people, experiencing workplace discrimination and inequality starts out as an annoyance, and in many cases, simply becomes an accepted part of the job. Unfortunately, many working Iowans don't realize that they have legal protections against these types of workplace injustices.

At the forefront of our practice is an emphasis on arming clients with the knowledge, resources and legal advocacy needed to hold employers and other employees accountable for their actions, or in some instances, inaction when putting a stop to harassment and discrimination.

What Our Clients Say About Us


Jan 15, 2020

I had never before used an attorney to get compensation for all that I went through after being the victim of a motor vehicle accident. Stuart Higgins and his assistant, Candace, were positive, knowledgeable and extremely helpful throughout the process of the settlement. All of my questions were answered and they worked hard for me. I would definitely use them again and would recommend them as an excellent resource for legal issues. I cannot thank them enough.

Stuart helped me in the hardest time of my life. My job, relationship with my child, my mental health was on the line when I was wrongfully accused of a crime that would of changed my life forever if convicted. I saw a lot of lawyers before deciding to go with Stuart and my big thing was is I'm not a criminal so the court system is a mystery to me. Not only did he explain how things were gonna go well in a way I could and anyone could understand he was very sympathetic of my situation. He worked on a payment plan with me to help me afford the defense I desperately needed. With all of the other amazing things Stuart did for me one thing mattered and that was winning. And that's EXACTLY what Stuart did for me! So not only was he super helpful and human.. he was also very effective. I would recommend him to anyone and will be doing so for as long as he's in business. I don't do online reviews EVER, but I wanted to share my story and show how much Stuart and his lawfirm helped me. Thank you for saving my life Stuart!
