ESTABLISHED IN 1987

Charlotte, Ross, & Gail

About Us

Mark Abendroth and David Russell formed the firm in 1987, out of a desire not just to practice law but to serve friends and neighbors. They embraced the principle that everyone deserves accessible and expert legal counsel.

Over the years, our firm has been intentionally grown with dedicated practice areas. Today, Ross Barnett, Charlotte Sucik, and Gail Barnett are the firm’s practicing partners. In today’s often impersonal world, our attorneys and staff are proud to remain a client-focused firm where we address the individual needs of each client.

By concentrating on our strongest related specialties, we remain true to our mission of providing specialized advice, counsel, and guidance. At our law firm, we build lasting relationships with our clients. The solutions we develop are catered to our clients’ specific needs and often span
several practice areas.

If you choose to work with us, you can expect service that is prompt, personal, and professional.

If we do not offer a practice area you seek, we would be happy to refer you to an office that does.

The staff here are wonderful and super helpful. I worked with Gail specifically and she was always friendly, understanding, and patient with me. Anytime I had questions she would answer them promptly. I am so glad that I found an attorney who specializes in disability claims. My mom tried to help me with the paperwork but the process was too confusing for us both. Without Gail, I wouldn’t have been able to succeed. Thanks to her my life has changed so much, I will always be thankful for her help! I cant recommend this firm enough!”

“We were treated very well by the entire staff. The estate planning group was very easy to work with in modifying our will. They listened attentively to our thoughts and specific needs and prepared the language to reflect those exact wishes.

We highly recommend this firm!

I am an attorney and have referred many people to the Abendroth Russell Barnett law firm for services in the areas they practice because I know the people I refer to them will receive excellent legal services. They have also been my personal attorneys in the real estate and probate areas because I know they are the best in Des Moines. I have known the attorneys and staff for many years and highly recommend them.
