Amy Skogerson

Amy sincerely focuses on the thoughts and feelings of everyone in her life: family, friends, clients and colleagues. The proof is in the many client/colleague relationships that have grown into friendships.

Amy is constantly in motion—working on fun projects and traveling with her husband Erik (often taking road trips on their Harley Davidson Ultra Classic), volunteering at the Des Moines YMCA Camp, hosting parties at the family vineyard with her mom Gloria, or participating in professional organizations and events that promote peace and understanding in the practice of law.
[more about Amy]

“When I came to Amy her law partner described her as ‘smart and ethical.’ To that, now, I would have to add some additional things. First, she has a spirit of fun that was really nice to have along the way. It extends from her sense of humor to her love of ‘artsy and weird.’ Most important, though, I would add that she has a genuine spirit of humanness. She helped me stay (get back) on an even keel and do the right thing that I really wanted to do all along. With her straightforward tact and sympathetic understanding and knowledge she was able to ease my ‘scares’ and concerns. She displayed humor, honesty, dignity, humility and compassion during the whole ordeal. Once again my most sincere thanks and I thank Amy for being a ‘friend’ through it all.  She beautifully handled my case not once but twice and is now my dear friend.  I will forever cherish our friendship.” - Debbie
"It is always a pleasure to work on cases with Andrea.  She has incredible passion for her work as an attorney and true dedication to her clients. I know when she is on the other side of a case we will have a dignified process and an opportunity to find creative solutions to our clients’ problems." – Kimberly J. Stamatelos, Attorney / Author of “The Compassionate Lawyer” / Co-Founder of The Compassionate Alliance
“Amy’s approach to family law is to have a smile on her face and assure you that everything will be ok, because it will be. This is not a fight, but peaceful interaction between the parties to come to a conclusion that works for everyone. I never would have thought that mediation would work, and I was so wrong. My relationship with our kids is not one of weekly visitations, rather a co-parenting agreement that works for the best interest of our children.”  ~Jim
“We are thankful to Amy for helping our family become complete!  Her caring and compassion really made our adoption process go smoothly!  She definitely holds a special place in our hearts.”  - Jana
