Jason Rieper


A lot of people tend to picture lawyers as cold, rigid people, but I learned at an early age that this stereotype doesn’t often hold true. You see, my uncle was an attorney for more than 40 years. By helping out at his practice, I saw that a good lawyer is one who’s both aggressive and effective while also being kind and compassionate. Now, I use that insight to give my clients the highest level of legal support whether they’re going through a divorce, child custody dispute, personal injury lawsuit, or criminal defense matter.

Practice Areas

Slip & Falls

Both commercial and residential property owners have a duty to keep their premises safe for visitors. It’s when they don’t that slip and fall injuries occur.

Medical Malpractice

When medical professionals make mistakes, it’s their patients who ultimately pay the price. Talk to me about getting compensated for your physician’s mistake.

Auto Accidents

Careless driving habits — like texting while driving — can lead to serious consequences for others. Don’t be a victim. Fight for the payment you deserve.

Divorce may seem like the end, but it can also
be a fresh start and new beginning.

Divorce is, without a doubt, one of the most emotionally exhausting legal processes out there. Still, it is often the healthiest decision you can make for yourself and for your children. No matter how amicable or hostile your situation may be, you will get nothing but support and encouragement from me. And, as we set out to negotiate the details of your separation (such as property division, alimony, child custody, and child support), I will gladly act as both your legal counsel and your sounding board.

Proud to Serve Des Moines

Polk County

My office is located in Des Moines, but I take cases throughout Polk County and the counties that surround it.

Madison County

If your injury, family matter, or criminal charge took place in Madison County, not to worry — I’m just a phone call away.

Dallas County

Dallas County is just a short drive from the greater Des Moines area. If you can’t drive to me, I can come to you.

Jasper County

Many of my clients live in Prairie City, Newton, Colfax, Monroe, Mingo, Valeria, and other cities in Jasper County.

Warren County is home to Indianola, Norwalk, Liberty Center, Martensdale, Hartford, and even a piece of Des Moines. Call if your matter took place there.

Story County

With I-35 running straight from Des Moines to Story County, arranging for an in-person consultation is no trouble at all.

If I can’t win your personal injury case, you don’t owe me a dime.

For me, integrity is just as important as delivering good results. While I’m confident in my ability to get you a favorable outcome, there’s no fee for you if I fail to do so. This is just one of the many ways I strive to take the weight of the world off your shoulders. After all, you’re under enough stress already. Your lawyer should help to alleviate that stress, not add to it.

It all starts with a free consultation

After an accident, the last thing you need is unnecessary attorney’s fees — especially if you’re just trying to get some basic answers to your legal questions. For that reason, I offer free consultations to all personal injury clients. We’ll meet to discuss your situation, and I’ll help you understand your rights and options moving forward. No fees. No pressure. Just guidance and support.

What happens next?

Until we’ve gotten together to discuss your situation, I can’t tell you exactly what’s going to happen with your case. The truth is that it all depends on the type of accident you were in, the severity of your injuries, whether your property was damaged, how long your recovery will take, and a number of other factors.

Fortunately, I have a lot of experience evaluating a wide range of personal injury cases, including car, truck, motorcycle, and boating accidents; slip and falls; crashes caused by drunk drivers and texting drivers; medical malpractice; and wrongful death. As we proceed with your case, I will share my knowledge so that you know what to expect. Even more importantly, I will fight tooth and nail to get you the best outcome possible.
