The Hedberg name has a long history with the labor movement and workers' rights advocacy in Iowa:
Art Hedberg, who is of counsel to the firm, served as a Charter Member and Past President of the Iowa Workers' Compensation Advisory Committee. He has also been a board member of the Iowa Trial Lawyers Association, Workers' Compensation Section and the Iowa State Bar Association, Workers' Compensation Section.
Mark Hedberg is a member of the International Union of Painters and Allied Trades (IUPAT) and part of the AFL-CIO Lawyers Coordinating Committee. He is also general counsel for Iowa's American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees union (AFSCME Iowa Council 61). Additionally, Mark is the retained attorney for a United Auto Workers' local and the union that represents Des Moines police officers.
Nate Boulton is an Associate Member of the USW and local counsel for UFCW Local 1149 in addition to being a member of the AFL-CIO Lawyers Coordinating Committee. He also serves on the Iowa Association for Justice Workers' Compensation Core Group, the Iowa Workers' Compensation Advisory Committee, and the Iowa State Bar Association's Workers' Compensation Section Council. His connection to the labor movement is also part of his family history. He is the son of Iowa labor leader Randy Boulton, who serves as Sub-District Director for the United Steelworkers (USW) and grandson of Ray Boulton, who served as a local union steward in a union that is now known as the United Food and Commercial Workers.
By staying involved with the Iowa bar groups on workers' compensation and workers' rights, we stay connected to current developments in these important legal fields. We also help promote and protect Iowa legislation dealing with workers' rights. We are workers' lawyers. As Art Hedberg says, "I've been practicing law for more than 50 years and I haven't represented a corporation yet."
