Attorney’s Office

  • I want to file a lawsuit. What should I do?

    The county attorney is unable to represent individuals in civil lawsuits. You should contact a private attorney to assist you in this matter. Many private attorneys are listed on the Iowa State Bar Association Find-A-Lawyer website. You may also find representation through Iowa Legal Aid, the Drake Legal Clinic, or the Polk County Bar Association Volunteer Lawyer's Project.
