Kelsey Ann Ward Marquard

Kelsey Ann Ward Marquard: Attorney with O'Brien & Marquard, P.L.C.


Kelsey Marquard is passionate about ensuring working men and women have a voice. She understands victims of discrimination or other workplace injustices are often at their most vulnerable when they seek legal advice. That vulnerability can be the same regardless of the client’s individual situation, including whether the client is a victim of discrimination, has not been getting paid, has not been paid overtime, or needs to negotiate a severance agreement. Kelsey knows each client is unique and that is why she looks forward to meeting with you and learning about your work experiences.

Kelsey grew up in a blue-collar family in small town in southeast Iowa. Proud of working to put herself through college and law school, Kelsey graduated summa cum laude from St. Ambrose University and with honors from the University of Iowa College of Law. Kelsey practiced litigation in the Quad Cities before becoming a partner at O’Brien & Marquard, P.L.C.

The determination of the need for legal services and the choice of a lawyer are extremely important decisions and should not be based solely upon advertisements, certification, specialization or self-proclaimed expertise. A description or indication of limitation of practice does not mean that any agency or board has certified such lawyers as specialist or expert in an indicated field of law practice nor does it mean that such lawyer is necessarily any more expert or competent than any other lawyer. All potential clients are urged to make their own independent investigation and evaluation of any lawyer being considered. These disclosures are required by the Supreme Court of Iowa.
