Wandro & Associates attorney Alison Kanne has been identified by Premier Education Lawyers as one of the leading education lawyers in the State of Iowa and in the United States. Alison takes pride in representing both students and school districts for a variety of legal needs, from guiding students through the disciplinary process and protecting their rights to creating policies to ensure school districts are protected at every stage. Her experience representing both sides of the aisle - students and school districts - gives her a unique perspective that is valuable to both sides in evaluating how best to protect their rights. In 2016, Alison assisted in obtaining a multi-million dollar judgment for several Iowa school districts in a products liability lawsuit. She has also represented students in disciplinary proceedings, and on several occasions has prevented the unwarranted expulsion of students at both the collegiate and high school levels. She further prides herself on representing disabled students who are often treated disparately because of their disabilities and ensuring that school districts comply with ADA law.

We at Wandro & Associates have the experience and know-how to assist financially distressed farmers in all aspects of creditor/debtor disputes. Terry Gibson, Steve Wandro and Brian Lalor have a combined 75 plus year’s history of representing farmers experiencing financial difficulty.
