At the John T. Hemminger Law Office, we work throughout Des Moines as workers’ compensation lawyers. We also handle a broad range of personal injury cases, including motor vehicle accidents, pedestrian accidents, wrongful death, nursing home negligence and product liability. We provide aggressive legal representation for clients throughout Iowa, including the cities of Cedar Rapids, Davenport, Moline, Council Bluffs, Sioux City, Indianola, Chariton, Ottumwa, and the counties of Polk, Warren, Marion, Lucas, Madison, and Dallas.

We have been helping injured people for twenty years through uncompromised legal representation. We oversee every aspect of the case from beginning to end. You will never be in the dark about the proceedings or the exact standing of the case. Our lawyers directly handle each client’s case, never a paralegal or associate. We personally get to know the ins and outs of your case and be able to answer any questions or concerns you may have. Our clients trust us and have confidence in our ability to zealously represent their best interest. Although friendly and approachable, we are also uncompromising litigators. We prefer to settle, but if settlement is not an option, we are not afraid to take our clients interests to court and fight for their rights.
We provide legal services to all Iowans, no matter what language they may speak. We have represented Spanish, Vietnamese, Bosnian and Sudanese clients. We are more than willing to accommodate your specific language needs.

If you or a loved one has been the victim of someone’s negligence or recklessness, or have been injured on the job or in an automobile accident in Iowa, contact the John T. Hemminger Law Office for your free initial consultation. Our Des Moines, Iowa personal injury lawyers handle cases on a contingency basis. There is no fee unless you receive a settlement.
