About Stuyvesant, Strong, Krapfl & Carda, PLLC
With deep Warren County roots, Stuyvesant, Strong, Krapfl, and Carda has included many prominent state and local leaders including congressmen and several former members of the firm that went on to be judges appointed to the bench. In fact, the firm can trace its roots back over a century to 1870, when John H. Henderson began practicing law in Warren County. His father, Paris P. Henderson was an attorney going back even further and possibly even preceding the formation of Warren County. However, there is no definitive record that the two Hendersons associated or practiced law together so we consider 1870 as the starting point of SSKC.
In 1975 Robert Stuyvesant opened an office in Carlisle and has been a consistent part of that community ever since. In 2021, the Carlisle and Indianola firms merged, and in 2022 the firm of Stuyvesant, Strong Krapfl, and Carda was created. The Carlisle office has been operating out of the same location for nearly 25 years and the Indianola office has been used by the firm for over 100 years. The firm has changed names many times over the years with the continual influx of new generations of attorneys at the helm, but its commitment to the community and zealous advocacy in Warren County and throughout Central and South-Central Iowa has remained.
