“My grandfather died of a work-related injury more than 60 years ago while working as a high school janitor. All my grandmother had was the shack they owned along the railroad tracks in their small northeast Iowa town. She would have lost that if it had not been for the help of friends and family – and the town’s only lawyer who helped her get the benefits to which she was entitled.”
