The determination of the need for legal services and the choice of a lawyer are extremely important decisions and should not be based solely upon advertisements, certification, specialization, or self-proclaimed expertise. A description or indication of limitation of practice does not mean that any agency or board has certified such lawyers as a specialist or expert in an indicated field of law practice, nor does it mean that such lawyer is necessarily any more expert or compitent than any other lawyer. All potential clients are urged to make their own independent investigation and evaluation of any lawyer being considered. These disclosures are required by the Supreme Court of the State of Iowa.

"No one enters suit justly; no one goes to law honestly; they rely on empty pleas, they speak lies, they conceive mischief and give birth to iniquity."
