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.
