Dawn is passionate about access to legal services and has built her practice to reflect this, including creating and implementing rural clinics in Northeast Iowa. She believes money, or a lack thereof, should not be the reason people can't see a lawyer. She's honest with clients and potential clients and refuses to take clients who she feels she won't be able to adequately advocate for. She's also a loyal friend, incredibly supportive and not afraid to have the tough conversation when needed.

Dawn has done intensive training on limited scope representation (LSR) through our workshops at The Law Shop by Skogerson McGinn LLC. She is a fantastic person and professional who is quickly growing her own LSR practice. Dawn is uniquely situated, being bi-lingual (English and Spanish) and doing both family and immigration law. She cares about her clients deeply, creating customized legal service plans that consider both her clients' legal issues and budgets.
