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, her Dispute Resolution/Mediation Certificate and participated in the General Civil Litigation Clinic Curriculum. After completing law school Bridget began practicing Family, Juvenile and Probate law – including being trained and certified as a Mediator in Family and Probate Law matters, and later as a Collaborative Divorce attorney. Bridget also regularly functions as a Guardian Ad Litem and Child and Family Reporter in family cases involving minor children. Bridget believes that the current landscape of family law is better served by passionate attorneys who desire to navigate clients through the dissolution process with honesty, respect, and dignity, rather than unnecessary conflict and fighting.
Bridget resides in Des Moines, IA, with her husband, and their two youngest children. When not working, or with family, you can find Bridget working with animals. In 2009 Bridget helped form the 501(c)(3) nonprofit breed specific shelter called Iowa Weimaraner Rescue (IWR).
