About Rick Schmidt, Attorney At Law

Choosing a lawyer to represent you in a workers' compensation claim may be one of the most important decisions you will ever make. That's why we offer a free consultation to any injured worker: so you can feel confident in your decision.

I'm Rick Schmidt, a workers' compensation attorney born and raised in Des Moines, Iowa. I was raised in a working-class family, and worked in construction as a teen and throughout college. I went on to complete my undergraduate degree at Iowa State University in 1991, and received my law degree from Drake Law School in 1994.

I began legal career working for Arthur Hedberg, Jr., an attorney who developed many of the current Iowa workers' compensation laws. In 2000, I decided it was time to go out on my own.

I have over 20 years of experience in workers' compensation, personal injury and Social Security Disability. I know the insurance companies and the attorneys who represent them. I know the physicians who treat injured workers, and I know what you are entitled to under Iowa law. This puts me in a better position to protect your interests now and in the future.

I am a member of the Iowa Association of Workers' Compensation Lawyers, Inc, Iowa Trial Lawyers Association and Iowa State Bar Association. When I'm not working, you might find me training for and competing in triathlons across the state of Iowa.
