Firm Overview

History and Mission of the Firm

Tom Riley founded the Tom Riley Law Firm in 1980. The mission of the firm is to seek justice for those who have been injured or damaged by the wrongful acts of others. Over the years, the Tom Riley Law Firm has represented thousands of clients and obtained more than $350,000,000 in recoveries on their behalf.

In the section, “Making the Law,” you can read about published appellate court cases where we have helped change the law in Iowa. But much of our work does not reach an appellate court. Through settlements and verdicts that are never appealed, we have obtained millions of dollars in recoveries on behalf of clients. See the section, “Results” for more information about our track record. In the section entitled “Resources”, we have listed legal resources that may be helpful to visitors to our website.

Tom Riley Law Firm Consultations

We charge no fees for an initial consultation in personal injury, wrongful death, malpractice and worker’s compensation cases, where fees are usually based on a percentage of recovery or contingent fee. In other cases, representation can be based on a contingent fee or hourly fee, depending on the type of case. Please contact our offices in Cedar Rapids, IA or Iowa City, IA or complete the online form to tell us about your potential case.
