Attorney Mark King is the founder of King Law, PLLC and an accomplished Des Moines attorney with more than two decades of legal experience. He began his legal career working on behalf of judges at the Polk County District Court and the Iowa Court of Appeals before spending several years defending employers and insurance companies against injury claims. But, over time, Attorney King began performing more and more work for the victims of negligence. He soon realized his true calling lay in representing plaintiffs against the employers and insurance companies he once defended and set out to level the playing field for plaintiffs; Attorney King took his education, experience, and skill to the other side of the law and now exclusively represents injured individuals and workers, as well as the families of those wrongfully killed, in accidents, both work-related and otherwise.
History & Legal Background
Attorney King is a lifelong resident of central Iowa. He was born in Ottumwa in 1973 and grew up in Des Moines, attending Dowling Catholic in West Des Moines. He attended Creighton University, graduating in 1997, before going on to attend Drake University Law School. Attorney King graduated with his Doctor of Jurisprudence, with honors, in 2001.
After graduating from law school, Attorney King worked for judges at the Polk County District Court and the Iowa Court of Appeals, gaining valuable knowledge from experienced and wise judicial servants. Following several years in insurance and employer defense, he transitioned to plaintiffs’ personal injury and workers’ compensation law and now represents those who have been irrevocably affected by another’s negligence.
