Decades Of Legal Experience

Attorneys James F. McMahon, Todd A. Stowater, Mark J. Laddusaw

Dedicated legal advocates serving clients in Northwest and North Central Iowa

At the office of McMahon, Stowater, Laddusaw & Buske, our lawyers bring decades of experience to every case we work on. Though we formed our firm in 2010, we are the product of a merger of two long-standing local law practices (Cassel, McMahon & Stowater and Lynch & Lynch). We have second-and third-generation attorneys as partners, and one of our lawyers has been a member of the bar for more than 50 years. Together, we have more than 120 years of legal experience.

We are honest, reasonable and practical, and we provide realistic expectations. Taking this approach allows us to examine all aspects of your case, address your concerns, advise you and advocate for you in order to find a resolution that fits your needs.
