We are a law firm dedicated to helping families and victims of Brain Injury, Spinal Cord Injury, Wrongful Death, Serious Injury Accidents, Nursing Home Negligence, Insurance Bad Faith, and Medical Malpractice. A perennial powerhouse, in calendar year 2016 alone, Trial Lawyers for Justice law firm has obtained on behalf of its injury clients record seven figure jury verdicts in Howard County and Winneshiek County, Iowa. Two out of every three cases are referred to us by other lawyers, and are often repeat referrals.

When our clients are not offered what we feel they deserve, we go to trial and ask the jury for 100% of the equal trade dollar value (ET$V) of all damages the law entitles a person to receive. Our job is to work to get our clients and their families enough justice to give them compensation for the rest of their lives. We only get one shot at getting this very important job done. We only get one trial. Because of this we only handle a limited number of cases at a time. This allows us to give our clients the attention and respect they deserve.

We are proud to be lawyers, committed to using the cornerstone of civil justice in this country — the jury system — to obtain full and fair compensation for individuals whose rights are at risk. We are on the side of real human beings whose rights are at risk. It is part of our mission to foster an open atmosphere of caring for people regardless of their socio-economic level of wealth, race, age, creed, religion, national origin, physical abilities, gender or sexual orientation. We never represent government entities, insurance companies, HMOs or corporations.

On civil cases (those cases where our client needs to file a claim or lawsuit against another person, company or government agency), we normally work on a contingent fee basis (meaning that we are paid for our services only from any monetary recovery obtained for our client). Thus, “affordability” should not be a concern for anyone who has been wronged and needs our help.

We look forward to speaking with you about your case, or answering any questions you may have about us or our firm.

Nicholas Rowley has earned a reputation as one of the country’s finest trial lawyers. His record-setting verdicts are the result of the distinctive human approach he takes with his clients, witnesses, judges, and jurors.

In this passionate and deeply personal treatise, Rowley and coauthor Steven Halteman, a jury consultant and trial strategist, candidly share their Trial by Human method, an approach that brings brutal honesty and humanity into the courtroom.

In Trial by Human, Rowley and Halteman reveal the importance of stepping out of the conference room and into the homes and lives of your clients—to share a meal, hear their stories, and experience for yourself how they live and breathe. As the authors explain, you can’t expect a jury to understand and feel your clients’ injustice if you haven’t taken the time to do so yourself.

With 112 jury trials under his belt by the age of thirty-eight, and over half a billion dollars in record-winning verdicts and settlements, many consider Nicholas Rowley to be his generation’s leading trial lawyer.

In this audio presentation, Nick talks about the method he uses to obtain substantial noneconomic damages for his clients—both in settlement and in trial.

This is the first in a new series of presentations by Nick that expands upon his Trial by Human method. With each new product, Nick will help you learn to develop a better relationship with your clients and improve the way you convey the full extent of their losses to insurance adjustors, arbitrators, and jurors.

Jury Selection & Opening Statements is the first in a series of videos that teaches how to use Nick Rowley’s Trial by Human method. This presentation features lectures by Nick Rowley, Courtney Rowley, and Joseph Low.

Nick Rowley discusses how to use his brutal honesty concept and shows how you can apply it to case selection, voir dire, and opening statement. Along with the discussion on how to use the Trial by Human method in opening statement, Courtney Rowley demonstrates how to apply the method with a sample opening from a medical malpractice case.

The presenters also provide instruction in voir dire, and give two sample jury selections. Nick Rowley conducts a jury selection for a civil case, and Joseph Low demonstrates how to apply the same methods to select a jury for a criminal case.
