Spencer Cady grew up listening to legal discussions of justice and fairness. His upbringing with his father as a state court judge, along with the mentorship and experience he received during his federal judicial clerkship, gave him firsthand experience with how our state and federal justice systems operate and how legal disputes are resolved.
Spencer’s practice consists primarily of general commercial litigation and appellate advocacy, often trying and arguing breach of contract cases, construction disputes, product liability claims, and general commercial disputes. He also has experience in both prosecuting and defending criminal cases. Spencer thrives on the competitive nature of litigation and on learning and understanding each issue in a dispute. He enjoys the diverse range of casework, industries, and issues in his practice.
Outside of work, Spencer is active in various community and legal organizations, including the Boys and Girls Club of Central Iowa, Young Lawyers Division of the Iowa State Bar Association, and his alma mater, Drake University. He enjoys spending time with his wife and two daughters, and he is constantly seeking physical and creative challenges that work out his mind in different ways, such as basketball, golf, running, and tackling home improvement projects.
