Biography

I'm Tim Semelroth. I'm a board-certified trial attorney in Iowa, and I fight for fairness for Iowans who have been injured because of someone else's fault.

My firm handles personal injury and workers' compensation cases, as well as denied Social Security Disability claims and employment law matters.

If you need someone to fight for fairness for you, contact me today.
