  1. Our office is open. We continue to observe our normal office hours during the COVID-19 pandemic to serve your essential legal needs. Our staff and attorneys are taking as many reasonable precautions as we can to maintain a safe and healthy environment for our clients and staff. If you need special assistance because of age or special health conditions, please let us know how we can accommodate you. Obviously, if you have been exposed or have any of the common symptoms, we respectfully request that you refrain from coming into the office and allow us to find an accommodation that will work for you.
  2. Federal & Iowa Filing & Tax Payment Deadlines Extended. Both the Internal Revenue Service and the Iowa Department of Revenue have announced special relief during the COVID-19 pandemic. Each has announced that the filing and payment deadlines have been extended to July. No special filings are required for this relief. We will, nevertheless, continue to prepare income tax returns as quickly as we can in the order that they come in.

  4. Jane M. Mathison retired on June 30, 2019. We will miss her graciousness and wise counsel. With a little bit of pride, we note that Jane was the pioneer for women in Ames. When she sought a job in another local firm, the partner there responded, “A woman lawyer?” Well, after forty years with Pasley and Singer Law Firm, Jane clearly proved that, not only could a woman successfully practice law, but she could do it at the highest levels. If you worked with Jane, the remaining attorneys have your file and will be happy to assist with your future needs.
  5. Electronic payment available. Our clients may pay invoices or make trust deposits electronically. Visit the Payments page on our website to initiate a credit card or e-check payment. We accept e-checks, Visa, Mastercard, American Express, and Discover.
