Putnam & Thompson Law Office, P.L.L.C.
The Putnam and Thompson Law Office was founded in Decorah, Iowa, in 1987 by attorney Dale L. Putnam. Since that time, the firm has provided aggressive legal counsel to individuals and businesses throughout Northeast Iowa.
The Putnam and Thompson Law Office is a general practice law firm with an emphasis on trial practice, personal injury, motor vehicle accidents, family law, real estate, probate, corporations and debtor/creditor.
Our office has defended clients charged with crimes ranging from class B felonies to traffic tickets. Our attorneys have had multiple jury trials that have resulted in acquittals for clients charged with sex abuse, burglary, assault, domestic abuse and operating while intoxicated offenses. If a case does not proceed to a trial our attorneys are successful at either obtaining a dismissal of the charge or negotiating a favorable plea agreement.
Our office represents clients in a wide range of matters including but not limited to agricultural related litigation, contract disputes, nuisance claims, construction law, boundary line disputes and creditor/debtor rights. Regardless of the nature of the case, we aggressively advise clients as they work towards a negotiated, mediated or litigated resolution.
Our office has a reputation of aggressively pursuing injury claims on behalf of clients who have been injured in a motor vehicle accident. We have experience assisting clients who have claims against not only the at-fault driver’s insurance but also underinsured motorist claims. We are also a participating law office with the Injury HelpLine.
Our firm has experience in handling all aspects of both commercial and residential real estate transactions. We frequently represent buyers and sellers in preparing all documents necessary to finalize the sale or purchase of a home, farm or commercial property. We prepare title opinions for buyers, banks and other lending institutions, and are participating attorneys with Iowa Title Guaranty.
