Firm Details

Our Firm: We offer a broad range of services, expertise and experience to our clients. Our attorneys’ credentials are second to none. You can trust us to provide timely, creative, effective and efficient solutions to help you attain your goals.

Our Clients: Our team of attorneys and our support staff serve clients nationwide. Our clients range from individuals and small businesses to large, publicly-held corporations. Our concentration of lawyers in mid-sized communities allows us the flexibility to deliver the services of larger firms in major metropolitan areas for a fraction of the cost.  Our offices in Cedar Rapids and Iowa City position us to provide comprehensive legal services at both ends of Iowa’s Creative Corridor. And our Chicago office serves as the firm’s hub for national clients looking for a leaner, more focused approach to their most sensitive and high-stakes matters.

Our Approach: Our attorneys have knowledge and experience in many different fields of law and business. To integrate these resources and apply them to a client’s legal matters, a senior attorney generally will evaluate the client’s situation, involve attorneys with specialized knowledge, delegate portions of the work to maximize cost efficiency, and coordinate the project to reach a prompt, thorough and realistic conclusion. We believe this team approach most effectively provides clients with well-reasoned, experienced advice.

Our History: We were founded in 1981 by F. James Bradley and Byron G. Riley. Our firm has enjoyed steady growth through the years, building expertise and resources clients require in an ever-more complicated legal environment. We added an Iowa City office in 2003 because we believe the Cedar Rapids and Iowa City business communities are growing more integrated each year.  We added a Chicago office in 2017 in response to client demand and in recognition of the fact that the firm has recruited top lawyers at all levels of seniority with significant experience in the Chicago market. In 2019 we added our Monticello, Iowa office to better serve rural communities in Eastern Iowa.
