The Rickert and Wessel Law firm has announced that attorney Erika L. Allen has joined the firm as a partner, effective January 1.

"Erika Allen has an excellent and established reputation within the legal and local communities. She will expand our practice of law and broaden our services to clients in the area. She is a wonderful addition and I am excited to partner with her in this new endeavor," states Abby Wessel who was recently featured in the Iowa Lawyer Magazine

"Joining Abby Wessel in the practice of law allows me to narrow the focus of my work and practice the areas of law I most enjoy, while continuing my duties as Grundy County attorney," said Allen, who intends to concentrate on estate planning and business law in her new practice. "I appreciate serving Grundy County as its county attorney, and will continue to receive support from assistant county attorney Kali L. Adams."
