ATTORNEYS

The attorneys at the Viner Law Firm are committed specialists in the practice of criminal and family law. It's our job to help you appropriately assess your rights. We're certain our experience and specialty in these areas will inspire your confidence - that's something you can't fake.

As the only true 'mid-sized' firm in the area, we provide the team support of a large firm with the approachable nature of a small, local practice. This isn't a general practice - we truly specialize in criminal defense and family law and we try a high volume of cases in eastern Iowa. Thomas J. Viner is a fourth generation attorney that has dedicated his professional life to the representation of people, not corporations, and his hand-picked team shares those values. We're willing to challenge the system on your behalf. As a staff of native Iowans, we feel uniquely connected to the cases in this community.
