Carney Appleby Law

Carney Appleby Law was founded by James W. Carney. Upon his graduation from Drake Law School and the receipt of his law license in 1975, Jim Carney hung his shingle and began his firm in the general practice of law. Through hard work, dedication, and many, many early mornings and long nights, Jim has built one of the premier lobbying and personal injury practices in the state of Iowa. Jim’s list of loyal legislative clients is long and distinguished, and his list of trial victories and reported Iowa cases is equally impressive. Through more than three decades of practice, Jim has remained true to his mission: to provide first-rate advocacy for his clients with purpose and professionalism.

In 1990, George W. Appleby joined the firm, making partner shortly thereafter. George had been practicing law in the public and private sectors since 1979. George’s criminal defense of both state and federal defendants, his litigation and appellate practice, and his natural penchant for legislative and administrative advocacy made him a natural fit for the firm. Over the years George has excelled in his lobbying activities and his appellate advocacy, making both a mainstay of his daily practice. In recent years George has expanded his civil litigation portfolio to include personal injury, medical malpractice, and a plethora of other civil trial matters.
