As a business and trial attorney Jeana loves to win. She looks for out of the box solutions and keeps in mind the total landscape, not just the legal landscape. “If it matters to the client, it matters to me. Behind every company is an owner, a board of people. When I represent an individual I want to know them as a person and not just their current problem. The more complicated and complex the problem, the more I like to work on it. At the same time, if I can pull from my connections and experience and help someone in a quick and simple way it is always gratifying. My favorite part of being the CEO’s attorney is the impact I can make on the future by solving problems today and anticipating the issues of tomorrow,” says Jeana.
Over the years Jeana has defied the risks of starting her own firm. Jeana says, “I took a calculated risk when I started the Goosmann Law Firm and branched out to form a business focused modern client centered law firm that is the firm today. Like a lot of entrepreneurs, it was a difficult decision because my current situation was a good one and a safe one. I just knew I wanted more.”
Jeana’s hard work over the past 20 years has not gone unnoticed. She put herself through college on academic and leadership scholarships and a full academic scholarship to law school. After law school, Jeana worked to build her legal skill and put in more than 15,000 hours before taking the leap to bring her unique vision to life. Jeana knew that nothing replaces drive and hard work – only passion fuels it. When Jeana started the firm and began hiring high paid educated attorneys to work for her, she was concerned about cash flow just like any other new business owner. Jeana had a vision and sold it to her team early on.
Jeana is heavily involved with the media and is regularly seen on news outlets as a legal correspondent, including NBC, ABC, CBS, The Des Moines Register, and Argus Leader.

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.”
