I had a jury trial in a very challenging venue in Kansas, and I lost the first trial. The judge granted my motion for a new trial, and he stated it was the first time he had done so in a civil case. I went to trial a second time, and the jury awarded a very favorable verdict for my client.
I feel proud and fortunate that I have only ever represented Plaintiffs, and I have helped them resolve their claims against insurance companies and other corporations.

My greatest hope is that I can help make a difference in the lives of my clients and that they feel they were given outstanding representation.
I grew up in Minburn, Iowa. It is a very small town, with less than 300 people. I have a younger and older brother. My parents were both very supportive of all of us and we had a great childhood. My parents have been the biggest influence because they taught me great values.
My strongest influences in life have been other successful trial attorneys who have taught me so many great lessons and how to be a successful trial attorney.
I have a nine-year-old son, Gabriel, the best thing that has ever happened to me. In my spare time, I like to read, travel, exercise, and watch sports.
I would like to write a book someday if I can find the time.
Travis is a member of the Iowa Bar Association.
