The CEO's Attorney
Having left an established 100-year-old law firm, Jeana Goosmann had a vision and defied the risks of starting her own firm. Initially, Jeana had enough work to hire multiple attorneys, however, she opted to hire only one lawyer and an assistant. Then came the rebranding, which she refers to as one of her best investments to date. This rebranding decision helped to define Goosmann Law Firm and what it was about, attracting clients and team members. As a result, Jeana hired up to seven attorneys and eight non-attorney staff just five years later.
Jeana's priority has been about creating a firm culture centered around Midwest values, big city style, hometown service, team-approach, and keeping up with the pace of business. Now having grown to three locations in the Midwest, Sioux City, Sioux Falls, and Omaha, Jeana continues to grow the firm without plans of stopping anytime soon. She says, "With a business mindset, hiring and promoting the right people, developing a strong professional culture, and capturing hot markets, I have been able to beat the odds, defy the risks, and watch my firm grow."In May 2009, GLF first opened?moved to Suite 200 10 months later?.tripling the original square footage and team members in one year.

Shortly after the expansion to Sioux Falls, Jeana began recording The Law Review on both Sioux City KTIV and Sioux Falls KEOLAND. In the firm's fifth year, the team had done over a billion dollars in deals with a total of fifteen members including attorney and non-attorney staff.
