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 had a legal concern. I called Stuart during the day but he was busy. I assumed I wouldn't get a call back from him until the next day. Instead though he called me after hours to let me set up a time the next day to talk. The next day came and he was prompt with the time he said he would call. Immediately I liked talking with him. He was very easy to talk with. He listened to everything I had to bring up and answered everything thoroughly. Even though he was swamped with other people at the same time he never rushed me or made me feel like a number. He could have just answered a few of my questions and been done. There was a question or two that he wanted to double check or look a little into and he did and then reached back out to me. Again all of this while he was swamped. Eventually all questions and concerns were answered and we started off the subject talking for a while. It felt more like talking with a friend with a few laughs. I absolutely would recommend Stuart because he does what you would expect a good attorney to do but also goes above and beyond what you would expect a good attorney to do.

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.
