Our Practice Areas

Family Law

Family law problems generate some of the most stressful of all legal disputes, and the stakes couldn’t be higher. Since family law courts are more unpredictable than other courts, and since the issues involved tend to be surprisingly complex, it is critical that you secure the services of a Cedar Rapids family law attorney with the skill and experience to help you through the Iowa legal maze.

Business Law

The law touches just about every business activity, regardless of whether you are involved in a dispute. An ambiguously drafted contract, for example, can raise a host of issues that could result in contentious litigation if they are not handled correctly. As a business attorney, Jonathan looks for comprehensive business solutions rather than narrow “lawyer’s solutions”.

The best way to ensure an optimal outcome is to stand up for your rights and to know how to work the system. 303 Legal, P.C.'s years of experience in the Iowa criminal justice system might just save your reputation and your freedom.
