Sierra Meehan Strassberg
"I take great pride in supporting clients emotionally during what can be an exceedingly difficult time in their lives. I aim to help clients reach an outcome that allows them to move forward peacefully."
Sierra Meehan Strassberg graduated from Grinnell College in 2010 before receiving her J.D. from Brooklyn Law School in 2018. She was admitted to practice law in the State of New York in 2019 before moving back to her home state, Iowa, where she was admitted to practice in 2020.
Prior to law school, Sierra worked in restaurant management in New York City. While still in law school as part of the Brooklyn Law School Employment Law Clinic, she advocated for clients seeking Unemployment Benefits and assisted clients with employment conflicts being mediated by the New York City Commission On Human Rights. She was awarded the Silver Pro Bono Award for over 500 hours of pro bono work. Sierra also served as co-president on the board of the Student Animal Legal Defense Fund.
Upon graduation, Sierra gravitated towards the area of family law. She worked at a matrimonial law firm in New York City assisting clients in high-stake, contentious divorces.
After being admitted to practice in Iowa, Sierra pursued training as a family law mediator. She is an active member of the American Bar Association, the Iowa State Bar Association, and the Polk County Bar Association.
In her free time, Sierra enjoys reading, films, gardening, exploring new restaurants and volunteering at the Animal Rescue League.
