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”.

Criminal Law

It can be intimidating to find yourself the target end of a criminal prosecution. Make no mistake about it, the Iowa criminal justice system is competitive to its core. 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.

Injury-based legal cases are some of the most complex, sometimes the lengthiest, and often the most upsetting. 303 Legal, P.C. assists and supports his clients from the very beginning and throughout until the end. Allow 303 Legal, P.C. to worry about the legal aspects of your case so that you can focus on what matters most: your health.
