Jeana Goosmann’s Story

When Jeana Goosmann founded Goosmann Law Firm, she knew she was taking a big risk. “Like a lot of entrepreneurs, it was a difficult decision because my current situation was a good one and a safe one,” she said. “I just knew I wanted more.” She focused her Sioux City law firm around business law and positioned herself as The CEO’s attorney, providing full-service legal and business advice to local and regional business owners. Her growing Sioux City, Omaha, and Sioux Falls law firms now practice in an array of practice areas including but not limited to agricultural law, banking law and finance, bankruptcy law, business law, construction law, cyber law, employment law, divorce and family law, gestational surrogacy law, health law, mergers & acquisitions, real estate law, telecom law, litigation, arbitration & mediation, and estate planning.

If it matters to the client, it matters to me,” adds Goosmann. “My favorite part of representing women-owned businesses is that I have a unique understanding of how to navigate the role, its benefits, and its opportunities.”
