Guy is a board certified trial attorney, former federal prosecutor, and senior partner for Grefe & Sidney, P.L.C. where he practices exclusively in litigation. He also serves on the Board of Counselors of Drake University Law School.

Whiston is a clinical professor of law at The University of Iowa College of Law. He teaches in the Clinical Legal Programs as well as courses in Evidence, Deposition Practice, Worker’s Compensation, and Trial Advocacy. John is a former partner with Rossbach & Whiston, P.C. and has been admitted to practice before the Supreme Court of the United States.
