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.

    I would highly recommend Stuart. He helped me with my questions and was very knowledgeable and able to put me and my family at ease.


    Aug 21, 2021

    Stuart was a great communicator and understanding of our situation. He was honest about the risk and difficulty of our case so we didn’t go in with unrealistic expectations. He was professional and represented us well and we came out with a win on our settlement!

    My unemployment claim was denied and should not have been. Mr. Higgins was on the appeal hearing call with me. Mr Higgins is the best I won my unemployment appeal. Mr. Higgins has one quality I've never seen in an attorney; he cares. He's genuine. He knows his business. I recommend Higgins Law.

    Stuart Higgins is a top notch attorney that is very knowledgable, professional, as well as personable. His law clerk Candice is top notch as well. They were very honest and made me feel very comfortable and at ease. Doesn't sugar coat it, will tell you as it is and details step by step what to expect! I highly recommend!!

    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!....update We Won the Appeal! Thank you!!
