Brody is an Associate at Peters Law Firm P.C. He was born and raised in an agricultural family in Clarinda, Iowa, and now resides in Council Bluffs with his wife, Jordyn, and their two sons, Kendol and Lawson.

Brody attended Buena Vista University for his undergrad, where he graduated cum laude with a criminal justice degree. During his time there, he was accepted into the Criminal Justice Honor Society, Lambda Phi, and worked hand-in-hand with the Innocence Project of Iowa, a nonprofit organization that diligently works to exonerate those who have been wrongfully convicted. He then went on to Drake University Law School, where he practiced law as a Student-Attorney in Polk County, became the Editor-in-Chief of the Drake Journal of Agricultural Law, and became a published author.

Brody joined Peters Law Firm, P.C. in August 2017, immediately following his graduation from law school. His practice focusses primarily on helping individuals in a variety of civil matters involving personal injury, wrongful death, family law, and other litigation matters. Whether it is advocating for an individual who has been personally injured or lost a loved one or litigating on behalf of a parent in a custody or divorce matter, his first step is simple: it is to sit down with the client and listen. From that point on, he works collaboratively with his clients towards a solution that will either resolve itself through settlement or through trial, if necessary.

 

“Every case has its own story, and you’d be surprised how many people hire an attorney and feel like their story is not being heard. At Peters Law Firm, you are going to be heard. You are going to sit down face-to-face with an attorney, and you are going to get to tell your story. Clients should not be treated like a file and certainly not like a number. They should be treated like a person - a person who is coming to me and asking for help, sometimes about the most sensitive and personal information one could imagine. That’s exactly why one of the most important things to know how to do as an attorney is simply, to listen.”
