“What sets us apart is the fact that despite a rather significant general downturn in the number of trials in both state and federal court, our trial attorneys are actually trying cases. In the past 5 years we have tried over 50 cases.”

– Connie Alt, Litigation Practice Group Chair

The Shuttleworth & Ingersoll, P.L.C. trial attorneys have extensive experience in federal and state courts in Iowa and other states; before state and federal administrative and regulatory agencies; and in arbitration proceedings, mediations and other forms of alternative dispute resolution proceedings. Many of the firm’s trial attorneys have prior experience as clerks for trial or appellate judges.

The Federal District Courthouse for the Northern District of Iowa is just two blocks from our offices, and our trial team has many cases pending in federal as well as state court in Cedar Rapids and throughout the state. In addition to admission in the Iowa state and federal courts, the federal courts of appeals and the United States Supreme Court, we have attorneys admitted to practice in the states of Arkansas, District of Columbia, Florida, Illinois, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska and Wyoming.

The firm represents clients through investigation, discovery, trial preparation, settlement negotiations, jury selection and trial in federal and state courts.

The firm has the capability and resources, including state-of-the-art computer technology, to handle complex and sophisticated litigation, through document management, discovery and trial. Our trial attorneys benefit from the diversity of knowledge of attorneys in the business law and intellectual property law practice areas, and from a team of professional legal assistants

The firm also has an extensive appellate practice, including representation of clients before the Iowa Supreme Court, Iowa Court of Appeals, appellate courts of other states, federal circuit courts of appeal, and the United States Supreme Court.
