Nicholas Sarcone is a passionate attorney who strives every day to help his clients achieve the best possible outcome. He is caring and tenacious as he sets out to protect his clients from the Government. If my friends or family in Iowa needed an excellent criminal defense attorney, Nick is the call I would tell them to make.

Excellent attorneys, they always put their clients first.

This has been a very heaven sent firm! I went to them with some legal trouble and more stress than I have ever felt with in my life! Dean took up my case and put my mind at ease. He handled my case like a boss and I was able to continue on in life and work with out worry from a very liberal political character assassination law that was trying to destroy me from several states away. I could not be more satisfied with the result of my case thanks to this awesome team of guys! If your in trouble and wondering where to turn you have come to the right place!

Nick Sarcone is nothing short of amazing. His work ethic, love of his client and legal knowledge can not be matched!

I worked for G&P for 3 years and it was one of the best experiences. I was an intern at G&P during the last 6 months of college and was offered a job after graduation. The Pattermanns were caring and flexible employers who treated their employees like family. Laura is a powerful presence in any room and very knowledgeable in law. She always makes herself available for questions from her clients. G&P is a great place to work and they are excellent attorneys who truly care about their clients. As an intern and entry level paralegal I was able to work on several types of cases and learned skills that helped me become a better paralegal. Also wanted to note they offer a lot of benefits and always gave me time off for any reason Including a sick family member or school function with my kids. I would recommend G&P to anyone.

I was injured at work. After 17 years of service to the company I worked for they did not to want help me or get me the medical care that I needed. Laura and her team made sure that I got good medical care and compensation for my injury. If I did not have Laura as my attorney I would not have gotten the care or compensation that I did. Laura and her team worked very hard to get them to comply with the law. Everyone in the office was available to answer my questions and walk me through the process. Laura and her team were all very caring and compassionate with me. I would like to give a big thank you to Laura, Brenda, Lori, Lisa, Anjanette and everyone else in the office that was so patient with me and dedicated to me during a very difficult time in my life. I highly recommend Laura and her team to anyone who needs help with workers compensation.

I hired Laura Pattermann after an injury at work. First one I’ve been involved in. Laura was very good at explaining the process. I am not the most patient guy and expected things to move quicker. She was patient with me and told me to trust the process and have faith. Laura and the gals in her office are friendly and helpful and easy to deal with. In the end Laura was right and she settled the case out of court for more than I had expected. She did a great job and knows what she is doing. I would refer friends and family to her any day and if I ever need another work comp lawyer I will call her in confidence it will be handled correctly and she will get the right outcome! If you need a work comp lawyer , make the call. She’s good!

If you have been injured on the job and need medical attention and a fair resolution hire Gallner & Pattermann Law Firm. I firmly believe that an average individual has no chance against these large companies and their insurance company lawyers without proper representation. My case dragged on for 5 years. Laura and her team hung in there got me the surgeries that I needed and Financial resolution that I could live with. Would have been completely impossible on my own. THANKS, guys n gals. I appreciate you all. Ron

Laura and her staff were so friendly, helpful, and easy to talk to, there was no questioned left unanswered. I was very fortunate to have such a wonderful team by my side!! ❤️❤️

Brody has and continues to treat my wife and I like people he knows, not just as clients. He is attentive, and responds to my questions in a timely manner whether it be by phone or email. He has been professional, compassionate, and informative. If I have to recommend an attorney to anyone it would be Brody, no questions asked.

I’d highly recommend Brody for any legal separation or divorce issues. He took great care of me, understood my situation and gave me the advice I needed. Very friendly, knowledgable and made me feel comfortable with my decisions.

Brody is absolutely amazing! For 6 1/2 years my husband tried desperately to be a part of his daughter's life on a regular basis and was never allowed to do so. We hired Brody six months ago and almost immediately we were granted joint custody and regular visitations! We have since went to trial where Brody fought hard for us and helped make our family whole again! If you are looking for an amazing attorney who will fight for your family, call Brody today as he's the man for the job!

Brody has been an answer to our prayers,he has helped us for the last 2 1/2 years on our case without his knowledge, guidance and patience we would've never been able to get this far.He also has shown us the utmost respect even when he knew we were extremely frustrated, he always allows for our 1000 questions and never sugar coats terms for us .He's extremely professional and humble and we feel blessed to have him representing our side,we would not want to go to court with anyone else and would recommend him to anyone needing an attorney without a doubt he's fantastic!

I worked with Brody last year and he was incredibly helpful and I'd absolutely recommend him.

David was very good with communication throughout my entire case. He emailed my promptly and explained everything that was going on in terms that I understood. I was charged with a DUI 2nd offense and he was able to get it dropped to a DUI 1st offense which meant that I went from 7 days of jail time to NONE! He answered all my questions, sent invoices so I knew what I way paying for and took care of EVERYTHING for me! He also cost HALF the price of other people I was looking at! Very impressed with his law firm!

My experience working with David can be described as Professional, Receptive, and Punctual. With David's guidance, I received the desired outcome in a very timely manner. David was always quick to respond, often times within the hour, to questions and concerns. This firm develops a relationship with their clients, and foremost, actively pursues the best route to meet the specific needs of each individual. I highly recommend David to anyone seeking legal counsel in his areas of expertise.

When you’re in a jam David is the man to call. He’s super responsive providing excellent communication and value with his service. He led me to my best possible outcome and quickly too.

If your in a bind call this man. He breaks things down to laymen terms is very upfront about what is happening, will happen and could happen. I've never had a problem getting ahold of him and provides good representation

This guys is a fantastic lawyer. Over the years I’ve had quite a few minor run ins with the law and worked with multiple attorneys. Some decent, some just plain awful.. This time was different. I was charged with a felony and was facing some serious time. My case didn’t look good I was terrified and the worst part about it was this time I was innocent. I needed someone prepared to go to trial and fight hard for me. I did a lot of research, came up with a list of criminal defense attorneys that were highly rated in Iowa on and offline. After calling every attorney on that list Dave stood out to me the most. I felt he truly understood my situation and wanted to win this case. As close as it came we didn’t end up going to trial but he got me a very greasy deal that nobody else could have got for me ;) Thanks Dave

I found Mark when I was going through a rough time as a young person. He stepped in and took care of everything from start to finish. He was professional, respectful, and trustworthy throughout the entire process. I am now many years past using his services, but he continues to be a resource for me. I went on to pursue a career in healthcare and I couldn't have done it without him. Thanks for helping me keep my future bright Mark!

Not only is Mark incredibly knowledgeable, but he is truly an excellent communicator and highly personable. A rare combination. I do not live in Iowa City and so when we needed legal help, I searched for reviews and recommendations. I read great reviews and found them to be 100% accurate. I would also add that Mark has a very good working relationship with other attorneys and judges which I think also simplified our case. He definitely had the best interest of his client in mind and was very quick and very direct, which I respect. We had the best possible outcome, but it could very easily have gone a different direction without Mark's guidance and expertise.

Mark is an outstanding attorney and knows his law. He is a great communicator, always kept us up to date, answered our many questions and is thorough in his practice. We know that he went the extra mile for us to get us the best outcome possible. His calm demeanor while going through the process was much appreciated and also equally matched by his go-getter abilities in the courtroom and negotiating with the prosecution. I am so glad that we choose Mark. I highly recommend Mark and thank him for his work.

Mark is, hands down, the only attorney you should hire. He is extremely courteous, intelligent, sympathetic, and takes every step to ensure you are being fully represented. Being an out-of-state resident, selecting the best representation was crucial in getting my case DISMISSED. Hiring Mark made it happen. He is quick to reply to inquiries of all forms of communication, and will supply you with detailed answers to your questions. Do not waste your valuable time with the other local lawyers...Mark Thompson is the only contact you will need.

I needed to retain Mark for an unfortunate circumstance regarding a family member. Mark went above and beyond in helping us with all our legal matters. From a legal standpoint everything was explained clearly to us, and everything turned out as Mr.. Thompson said it would. Actually BETTER than what was expected. Mark clearly told us some of what he would shoot for was a longshot - but he came through for the family. Mark's legal skills are impeccable, but the thing that impressed me most was his genuine caring for the young individual involved. Mr. Thompson is a credit to his profession, and I would recommend him to anyone in need of legal assistance.

I am so glad that we choose Mark. I highly recommend Mark and thank him for his work.

    Mark is, hands down, the only attorney you should hire. He is extremely courteous, intelligent, sympathetic, and takes every step to ensure you are being fully represented. Being an out-of-state resident, selecting the best representation was crucial in getting my case DISMISSED. Hiring Mark made it happen. He is quick to reply to inquiries of all forms of communication, and will supply you with detailed answers to your questions. Do not waste your valuable time with the other local lawyers...Mark Thompson is the only contact you will need.

    I needed to retain Mark for an unfortunate circumstance regarding a family member. Mark went above and beyond in helping us with all our legal matters. From a legal standpoint everything was explained clearly to us, and everything turned out as Mr.. Thompson said it would. Actually BETTER than what was expected. Mark clearly told us some of what he would shoot for was a longshot - but he came through for the family. Mark's legal skills are impeccable, but the thing that impressed me most was his genuine caring for the young individual involved. Mr. Thompson is a credit to his profession, and I would recommend him to anyone in need of legal assistance.

I was Mr. Pollack's client; and a licensed practicing attorney myself, a Stanford Law School graduate with over 25 years experience in the law. I know the tricks of the trade, and know the difference between good lawyering and mediocre lawyering. Representing a fellow lawyer is one of the most difficult tasks for an attorney to undertake; the client is difficult, opinionated, and questions most everything from a position of knowledge. Adam Pollack handled two of my cases that arose in my personal life, in two different Iowa jurisdictions. Adam advocated for my interests with the utmost professionalism and competence. He was always available day or night, a no-nonsense lawyer, lean-staffed, non-bureaucratic, nimble, but also sincerely cared about my plight. Most importantly, he obtained excellent results for me in both cases. Although at the time, Adam had to marshal all of his considerable skills to persuade me that these were excellent results. Looking back with hindsight, I now see clearly that Adam's approach, judgment, and advice to me, were virtually flawless. Adam's involvement with boxing improves his effective and strong approach to the practice of law. He saved my family and me from much difficulty, and I unequivocally recommend Adam to anyone anywhere in the State of Iowa, whether in the Iowa City area or anywhere else. He is the best defense lawyer in Iowa, and I know many.

I only called because of the reviews I read. However my experience was quit different. I tried to be thorough as possible, providing as much info in less than 3 minutes. His response was immediately to judge the client and make prejudged notions. I immediately corrected him because he was wrong, he hadn’t had all the facts. He became irate suggesting what I need to do with a public defender. I simply thanked him and ended the conversation because the qualities put forth was definitely not what I was looking for. Now a days it’s so hard to expect the best of people when you can’t help but think your getting the short end of the stick simply because of race.

Adam does an amazing job, he is quick to respond, very informative about what he can do for you and very persistent. All the qualities you could ask for in an attorney. I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking legal advice.

Very professional and extremely detail oriented. Never needed to call him, it was as if he knew you were about to ask a question; next thing you know he's calling. Outstanding service and gets the results you deserve. Highly recommended!

Adam represented me on a recent OWI charge after I found him via a Google search and I definitely made the right decision to utilize his services. Adam was able to get my case dropped by both the state and the DOT thereby allowing me to keep my driver's license. Adam kept me well informed and was persistent in his pursuit of the county prosecuting attorney addressing my case. I highly recommend him to anyone.

So about 2yrs ago I begin a journey with Mr hall I contacted him about him taking my case so I could get to see my kids ,and he was very knowledgeable and upfront with me about what to expect that it was going to be hard but will try to get me to see my kids. So I mean cause the pandemic it seem like it was taking forever but for those who don't know civil cases can be a long process so don't be discouraged thinking he don't care about ur case cause let me tell u what when it came to court day he was more then ready to go in court I was impressed. And he's secretary wich is he's son was always very nice and always kept me inform of what was going and always told me to call if any questions and even after the trial was done he still showed he care for he's clients interest.

Seriously by far the worst experience I have EVER had in my life. Completely shady. Did not appear to court on multiple occasions. Exhausted my retainer pretty quickly bc they would just keep filing for extensions and refusing to speak with me and having his son provide the worst excuses and examples ever. He did not EVEN SHOW UP for the deposition. If you like not being treated with respect and enjoy getting ripped off. THis is the lawyer for you!!! Sent me to collections for the first task he did and was billed for. Worst Integrity and disrespect I have ever witnessed.

Fast, friendly, compassionate service during a difficult time. Having never been through a legal matter such as this, I had no idea what my options were. My attorney (Mr. Hall) was great about answering any questions I had. His response time was also great - he was usually accessible and if not he let me know when he would be. Highly recommend to anyone!

Nick Wingert is a very good attorney who knows what he is doing and is a true advocate for his clients. He works hard and makes sure you are aware of what is going on and what to expect. I would highly recommend Nick and would gladly seek his expertise again if I ever had the need.

Absolutely horrible! He would never return calls and when pushed to do his job instead of signing papers agreeing to things he refused to go to court to fight for custody, which was why he was hired. Absolutely the worst lawyer to deal with and very unprofessional.
