Our Iowa & Nebraska Labor Lawyers
The partners at Smith & McElwain Law Offices remain dedicated to Harry H. Smith’s legacy of helping the working men and women of Iowa and Nebraska. That is why we specialize in labor law and workers’ compensation law in the Iowa and Nebraska courts.
We represent labor unions and their members exclusively, both at labor board hearings and in courts of law. Our focus is to provide clients with the skilled and dedicated representation they need to be fairly compensated for injuries and other grievances.
Our labor practice began with referrals from Harry’s family and friends, who were members of the Teamsters in the early 1950s. Since those first referrals, our practice has grown to represent labor unions throughout Iowa and neighboring states. And, we take pride in representing labor unions in a variety of industries and in both public and private sectors.
Since those early days, we have continuously and exclusively represented labor unions and their members at the bargaining table, through the NLRB process, before state labor boards, and in the courts. Like Harry, our focus and purpose is to provide our labor clients with competent and zealous representation in order to assist our clients in their representation of their members.
Our close relationship with area unions, and the labor movement in general, has ingrained in our lawyers and staff the simple truth that protecting your interests, protecting your rights, is why we show up for work every morning.
At Smith & McElwain, our attorneys are committed to zealously serving the interests of our clients. We offer initial consultations at no cost to you. We are available during evenings and Saturdays to accommodate your needs. Translators are available upon request. We make it easy. Call us for an appointment today.
