Loree Nelson is a partner of Lamson Dugan & Murray in its Des Moines office. She has enjoyed defending doctors, nurses, chiropractors, dentists, oral surgeons, and other health care providers for over 20 years. She represents various providers before licensing boards and other state agencies. Loree has successfully tried many cases throughout Iowa. In 2020, she was honored to be invited to join the American College of Trial Attorneys.
Loree began her career as a respiratory therapist, which provided her with an excellent base knowledge of medicine and medical issues. She then moved to an administrative position working on quality assurance and peer review issues. That work spurred her interest in law, so she put her career on hold and went to Drake Law School. After graduating at the top of her class, she went to work at a medical malpractice insurance company. In 2001, Loree moved to private practice, and she has enjoyed practicing as a defense attorney since then.
Outside of work, Loree enjoys spending time with her family, including her small grandchildren. She enjoys exercising and kayaking with her husband. Loree has always been active in her church. On a warm summer day, Loree can be found out in the garden enjoying a little “dirt therapy.”
