Where are you from originally?
I’m originally from Boone, Iowa.
Tell us a little about your career.
I’ve been a shareholder with Nyemaster Goode, P.C. for the past 17 years. Before that, I was a member of Whitfield & Eddy, P.L.C. for nine years. After earning my law degree from the University of Iowa in 1987, I clerked for Iowa Supreme Court Chief Justice W. Ward Reynoldson and then U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Russell J. Hill. My practice area is creditor rights and bankruptcy law.
What do you do with your free time?
I enjoy family activities, golf, Hawkeye sports, and politics. I’m also involved in the Des Moines A.M. Rotary, the University of Iowa Alumni Association Board, and the Dowling Foundation Board.
With the weather cooling off, what are you most looking forward to this fall?
I’m looking forward to playing some golf, and spending Saturdays in Kinnick Stadium, cheering on the Hawkeyes.
In this issue, we profiled Langel and Woods Clothiers. We heard you are a loyal customer. What keeps you going back?
They provide great quality and selection, and their service is second to none. Nothing fits me off the rack, so I started buying my suits and shirts from L&W 16 years ago, and I’ve been a very satisfied customer ever since.
