How can I find out whether a lawyer has a licence to practise

This answer was rated:

How can I find out whether a lawyer has a licence to practise in Iowa?

Chris T., JD :

Good evening. I'll be happy to assist you with your question.

Chris T., JD :

What is the lawyer's name? I'll be glad to check for you.

Customer:

Thomas P. Gallanis

Chris T., JD :

He is a professor at the University of Iowa law school.

Chris T., JD :

However, I don't see where he is actually licensed in Iowa.

Chris T., JD :

Have you attempted to hire this person?

Chris T., JD :

Were you contacted by someone claiming to be Thomas Gallanis?

Customer:

No one has contacted me claiming to be Thomas G. I know him very well; we were in graduate school together. But, I've come to realize that much of the advice that he gave me was in his interest and to my detriment.

Chris T., JD :

Gotcha. He appears to be a well respected law professor, but not actually licensed in Iowa, if that helps. It is somewhat ironic that he's having that issue, because, from what I can tell, one of his areas of expertise is fiduciary law.

Customer:

It is ironic. Thanks so much!

Chris T., JD :

Glad to help.
