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.

When I got married I never imagined that I would be divorced, but I think that's true of most people. 17 years later, I was a nervous wreck walking into Amy's office. She greeted me with a warm hug. After my nerves were settled, and I had told my story, she took my hand and said that it was time for me to stop taking care of someone who needed to start taking care of himself. I felt safe, and I felt ready. My divorce journey was not as difficult as it could have been, but there were some uphill climbs that I had to take, and Amy was right there with me. Always with advice, always with a kind word, and always with a feeling of positivity. I cannot imagine having anyone else represent me or my family. To work with Amy, is to work with more than just a legal representative. I could provide some small similes in order to really hit home with how pivotal she has been (and to utilize that English Master's degree I'm still paying for) and say: Amy is like a light house during a storm, she is the smell of your favorite cookies baking at your grandma's house , and can be thought of as steaming cup of hot chocolate that awaits you after you've been sledding all day. All true. Simply put, Amy helped my four children and I navigate a very difficult time, and begin our new life as a happy family of five We now live without being afraid, and enjoy every single day that is ahead of us. Amy helped us to get there.” – Kelly
“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
“Whenever I find out Amy is on the other side of a case I know we will be operating in integrity and fairness.” - Kimberly J. Stamatelos, Attorney / Author of “The Compassionate Lawyer” / Co-Founder of The Compassionate Alliance
