Becky Muzney

Powerhouse Paralegal

Becky, our powerhouse paralegal, is there at the drop of a hat and is always ready and willing to help. She joined our team in 2019 and continues to show an eagerness to learn every practice area we throw her way. Her primary focus is family law and she absolutely loves having a hand in helping clients become forever families through adoption.

Becky was raised in Van Meter, Iowa. She left to explore the West Coast for a few years where she attained her Associates of Science Degree, but eventually home called her heart and she moved back to Van Meter with her fur baby, Willy. Becky and Willy eventually made room in their home and their hearts for one more when Becky met her husband, Dakota, in 2020. The two tied the knot in October 2022 and we couldn’t be happier for them.

Dakota is in the military so unfortunately you won’t see Becky’s beautiful face in the office as she works remotely a majority of the time. Have no worries though, she’s a pro at it!

When not working, Becky and Dakota are looking for new adventures whether it be a weekend road trip to somewhere new, a concert, a brewery, golfing or hiking.

“I have known Amy J. Skogerson for many years. Over my many years of being in practice, I have found that lawyers who are successful are those who have earned the respect of their colleagues. Amy has achieved that lofty goal. She has earned the respect of her colleagues.”  - Patrick L. Wilson, Attorney, Des Moines, Iowa
"Our daughter was in foster care for 725 days. Foster Care is emotional and filled with uncertainty. So when we were approved to adopt, Amy understood how important moving quickly was for us. Amy and her staff were so professional, understanding, and efficient. Our adoption went as quickly as possible. Amy and The Law Shop helped us complete our family with the sweetest, cutest little girl and we are so grateful! We HIGHLY recommend Amy and her staff. They will treat you like family! Thank you!" – Holli
“When I came to Amy her law partner described her as ‘smart and ethical.’ To that, now, I would have to add some additional things. First, she has a spirit of fun that was really nice to have along the way. It extends from her sense of humor to her love of ‘artsy and weird.’ Most important, though, I would add that she has a genuine spirit of humanness. She helped me stay (get back) on an even keel and do the right thing that I really wanted to do all along. With her straightforward tact and sympathetic understanding and knowledge she was able to ease my ‘scares’ and concerns. She displayed humor, honesty, dignity, humility and compassion during the whole ordeal. Once again my most sincere thanks and I thank Amy for being a ‘friend’ through it all.  She beautifully handled my case not once but twice and is now my dear friend.  I will forever cherish our friendship.” - Debbie
"We have been really impressed with how fast and efficient Amy is with getting our adoption hearings scheduled and finalized.  It is clear that she makes her clients a priority and knows how important our Adoption Days have been to our family!”  ~Jake Skurdal
