Client Comments

"I have worked with Jeff Krausman for the past 20 years, and I would have to say he is one of the most knowledgeable education attorneys in Iowa. He is smart and provides excellent legal counsel."

-Robert Stouffer
Des Moines Christian School

"Mr. Jeffrey Krausman is a well-grounded attorney who understands school law, but more importantly, understands the human condition. He has kept our district out of litigation numerous times and represented the district with great dignity, authority and grace. Our district trusts his opinion and his ability as a negotiator for master contract issues. Other attorneys with whom the district works, such as with insurance claims, do not perform as thoroughly or as tenaciously as does Mr. Krausman. Mr. Krausman has served this district for nearly two decades with three different superintendents and two different business managers. His reputation has improved as time has passed for this district. Mr. Krausman and the Dickinson Law firm has done exemplary work for our school district and I recommend him and the firm without hesitation."
