Austin is a protector, and his practice is focused on protecting the rights of the accused. He found his passion for aggressively defending criminal defendants while in law school – where he tried his first jury trial. He also graduated near the top of his class with high honors and was a member of Drake Law Review.

Austin prides himself on diligent and aggressive representation. He meticulously scrutinizes all details of the government’s allegations. Further, he is accustomed to the courtroom, regularly before the Court arguing motions or trying cases. With this approach, Austin has had several cases dismissed prior to trial and many not guilty verdicts at trial.

Austin recognizes client’s come to our office in the most stressful or low parts of their lives.  He provides clients with the necessary confidence and loyalty to endure what can be a long, emotional, and trying time.

While Austin’s focus is criminal defense – both trials and appeals, he is accepting general civil litigation and family law matters on a case-by-case basis.

Austin currently lives in West Des Moines where he enjoys lifting weights, frying chicken wings, and cheering on the Hawkeyes.
