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


    May 06, 2021

    Stuart and his legal assistant were such a pleasure to work with. I have an FMLA case still pending but I could not get any assistance from anyone, even legal aid from the state. This firm reviewed my case thoroughly and advised me on the law in preparation for a hearing and now is representing me on appeal. I'm so thankful there are attorneys who care and are willing to assist you when everyone else has abandoned you. Even if I don't win my appeal, I was treated professionally and the communication was excellent AND they were super nice. I highly recommend Stuart Higgins and Associates for your employment law needs!

    Wow....what a team ! Stuart and Candace are top notch. A person could not ask for anymore professionalism and knowledge. His paralegal Candace is fast and organized. Stuart Higgins will explain in detail every aspect that will help you with your situation and shows compassion for your concerns. This guy knows his stuff! Highly recommend this law firm.

    Stuart is an incredibly informed and empathetic attorney. He connects with clients in a way that makes you understand he cares about your case and you as a person. With a firm understanding of the law and the ability to explain it in layman’s terms, Stuart would be a good choice for anyone in need of representation or counsel. I highly recommend him.

    To start with Candace/paralegal was wonderful. She answered my call without it going to voicemail (that never happens!) and she was very thorough answering my questions. Me Higgins was wonderful. He was prepared and called me immediately. He is very knowledgeable, talks thorough all details and was transparent about what could be done with my case. I’m totally impressed!

    Mr. Higgins represented me against the state. His office was highly responsive during the entire process. Always got back to me the same day. He took the time to understand the case and the arguments. During the trial he was a wolf. The other side had no idea what hit them. Through his well preparedness, he was able to catch the other side in every single discrepancy. He also leveled with me and prepared me for the case. I would highly recommend Mr. Higgins. He is excellent at what he does.
