My name is Jennifer Weaver. I practice primarily criminal and family law
in Marshalltown, Iowa.

I currently offer a free initial consultation.

Family Law
This wasn’t the plan!

Most people don’t come see me because life is going great. You are likely concluding that your relationship isn’t working. Sometimes children are involved. Relationships are complicated and there is no “one-size fits all” solution. I offer a free initial consultation so that we can talk through what is going on. You will walk out of my office with your questions answered and a better idea of what the process looks like. That way you can make an informed decision about your next step.

Criminal Law
How do we fix this?

I sit here writing this website with a fractured ankle. I spent hours googling whether it was a sprain or a fracture. Two days later I went and saw the doctor. I didn’t get the news I wanted but I have a plan to deal with the ankle.

Federal Defense

Federal indictment for a drug conspiracy? Child pornography? Gun charge? Federal crimes carry large prison terms.  You want an experienced attorney that can hit the ground running. The Federal Sentencing Guidelines https://www.ussc.gov/guidelines are complicated. You want an attorney that is fully versed in federal criminal law and procedure on your side.  The federal government has criminal statutes that deal with crimes occurring across state borders.  Your attorney must be licensed to practice in the federal court where you were charged.

About Me
Marshalltown High School Class of 1999

I was born and raised in Marshalltown. I left Marshalltown to go to the University of Northern Iowa for college and then law school in Chicago. I then worked as a prosecutor in Fort Dodge, Iowa, for approximately 7 years. While working as a prosecutor, I prosecuted every type of crime from a simple misdemeanor to first degree murder. I worked on the other side of great defense attorneys and learned a lot about how to exploit the weaknesses of the Government’s case. 

My family moved back to Marshalltown in 2014 and I later joined Kaplan and Frese, LLP. While working at Kaplan and Frese, I gained valuable experience as a federal defense attorney.

Currently I practice as a solo practitioner in Marshalltown, Iowa so that I can meet the unique needs of my clients. I pride myself on being solution oriented and creative. I’ve tried every family law and criminal case imaginable. I’m ready to go to court to fight for you.

I offer a free initial consultation so that you can meet me and discuss your needs before hiring me.
