Step 1 of 3

Get Started

Thanks for considering The Law Shop by Skogerson McGinn LLC (“TLS”)!

We appreciate that you are looking for efficient, high quality, affordable legal services.
Here is how our client onboarding process works.

Step 1 – Conflicts Check – to ensure we have not represented anyone else with interests adverse to yours.
Step 2 – Shop Evaluation Application – to determine whether we can assist with your particular legal matter.
Step 3 – Appointment Scheduling – to meet with a TLS attorney about your case or transaction.

To get started, please complete the form below. TLS will run a conflicts check within 1-2 business days from the date you submit this form. If a conflict is found, we will do our best to give you a quality referral to another firm. If a conflict is not found, we will promptly notify you with further instructions for submitting your Shop Evaluation Application. There is a $150 fee for the shop evaluation that is due prior to the appointment unless the shop evaluation is for a workers’ compensation or personal injury matter. You will receive valuable information and come up with a customized plan to fit your circumstances.

“Getting divorced was never on my radar. It was a huge, horrible, unexpected shock. Working with Amy was a lifeline in many ways. Of course, her knowledge of the law was top-notch. But more than that was the care she showed me. Every meeting ended in a very tight hug. I get teary-eyed even now remembering it. She was very patient, willing to answer every single question I had (& still does when things pop up).  She listened and let me lead the way, but was also very clear in offering advice in areas that might work out better in a way I hadn’t thought of. I think the most glowing praise I can give her is that I have found out my ex has referred friends to Amy instead of the lawyer he used in our divorce!” - Heidi
“Amy was invaluable in helping me through a difficult time. I was dealing with the overwhelming emotions involved in the divorce process. Amy walked me through the process and made it easy. She answered my questions, no matter how trivial and took time out of her day to come meet with me rather than making me come to her. Amy did a wonderful job of making a difficult time less difficult. Now I can focus on living my best life possible with my children.” – Kayla
I am so happy I chose Amy to help me work through my divorce. She made this unknown process to me VERY manageable and “made it all happen” when I didn’t have a clue as to where to even begin. Amy has a warm and welcoming personality that made me feel really important, not just a paying client but a person who she truly had a big heart to help!! She wanted to hear my story and made sure to give me hugs when she knew I needed them! – Erica
“Amy has been a great volunteer for Y Camp, earning our Volunteer of the Year Award first in 2012 and then again with her husband Erik in 2014.  She will be Y Camp’s first female Board Chairperson, having already served as Vice Chairperson and Chair of the Property Committee.  She also organized a great community event fundraiser for camp.  Amy has been and continues to be one of our best volunteers, she truly cares about serving others!”  ~David Sherry, Executive Director, Des Moines YMCA Camp
