In my thirty years of practicing Workers’ Compensation Law, I have learned to value the collegiality between the Claimant and Defense Bars. IAWC is the organization that brings us together for a common purpose, and I am thrilled to be able to serve as president this year. I look forward to working with both Claimant and Defense attorneys as we not only continue our work of advocating for our respective clients, but also as we work together to support and maintain Iowa’s workers’ compensation system—a system historically designed to protect and support Iowa’s workers.

Yours truly,

Mary Hoefer | President | Iowa Association of Workers’ Compensation Lawyers
