Bridget M. Bott attended the University of Iowa where she obtained a B.A. in Communications and then Drake University Law School where she received her Juris Doctorate degree. After completing law school Bridget began practicing Family Law, Juvenile and Probate law – including being trained and certified as a Mediator in Family and Probate Law, and as a Collaborative Divorce attorney. Bridget also regularly functions as a Guardian Ad Litem in cases involving minor children or individuals with diminished decision making capacities. Bridget believes that the current landscape of family law is better served by compassionate and passionate attorneys who desire to navigate clients through the dissolution process with respect and dignity, rather than unnecessary conflict and fighting. Bridget resides in Des Moines, IA, with her husband and two children. When not working, or with her family, you can always find Bridget working to save her greatest love - animals. In 2009 Bridget helped form 501(c)(3) nonprofit shelter called, Iowa Weimaraner Rescue (IWR), which rescues homeless and displaced Weimaraners. She has served on the Rescue’s board, as a Volunteer Coordinator, has presented at Animal Welfare Seminars on the topic of “Navigating Legal Issues in Your Rescue”, and currently serves as IWR’s President. She regularly helps with fundraising and has fostered and saved over fifteen foster dogs in her home alone since the Rescue’s inception. Bridget is also an active member of St. Theresa’s Parish in Des Moines, Iowa, is a member of the Iowa Bar Association, the Central Iowa Academy of Collaborative Professionals, the Polk County Bar Association, and was named “Ten Best in Client Satisfaction” by the American Institute of Family Law Attorneys in 2015.
