Attorney Profile

Attorney Lee Rankin is a partner at the highly respected Council Bluffs law firm of Willson & Pechacek, PLC. Mr. Rankin, who began at the firm in 2005 as an associate, became a partner in 2010 as a result of his numerous successes, extensive legal knowledge and dedication to his clients' needs. Today, both individuals and business clients from southwestern Iowa and neighboring Nebraska turn to him for assistance when faced with legal challenges in the following areas:

Mr. Rankin earned a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration in accounting from the University of Nebraska Omaha in 1998. After spending a few years in the business world as a licensed accountant, Mr. Rankin decided to further his education. In 2005, he earned his law degree from the University of Nebraska College of Law. Soon after graduation, the Iowa Supreme Court approved him to practice law in Iowa's state courts, and, in 2006, the Nebraska State Bar Association granted him admission. He has since represented clients from both states.

Thanks to Mr. Rankin's excellent reputation, he has already earned the respect of the legal community, and its members recognize him as one of the Midwest's promising young attorneys. He is an active member in a number of legal organizations, including The Iowa State Bar Association, where he is a member of the Taxation and Probate, Trust and Estate Planning sections, the Council Bluffs Estate Planning Council and the American Bar Association, where he is a member of the Taxation Section.
