Desirée Kilburg, attorney and vice president at Shuttleworth & Ingersoll, has been named to the Corridor Business Journal’s 2019 Class of Forty Under 40, and was honored at a ceremony on Thursday, October 17, in Cedar Rapids.
Desirée’s work focuses on all aspects of civil litigation. Desirée advises and represents clients on a variety of civil litigation matters, including medical malpractice, creditors’ rights in bankruptcy, administrative law, and commercial disputes. She has tried cases to both judges and juries in Iowa’s state and federal courts.
The CBJ published a question-and-answer-style interview with Desirée as part of the award. When asked about the best advice she has ever received, she answered:
“Before my first jury trial, my father-in-law, a retired judge, told me to speak from my heart rather than try to emulate other people. He pointed out that the most effective communication comes from a place of simple honesty and genuine belief.”
