Thorough, Aggressive OWI / DUI Defense That Gets Results

We are committed to skillful, thorough and aggressive defense. From securing the police reports, arrest records and any squad car or booking video in your case to interviewing the arresting officer under oath, we will investigate the nuances of your case.

The key to your Iowa drunk driving defense may be in the details. We ask these questions and more to determine the possible defenses available to you:

  • Was the OWI / DUI stop of the vehicle legal?
  • Were your rights as a defendant violated in any way?
  • Was your right to communicate with an attorney or family member denied?
  • Were the field sobriety tests performed properly?
  • Did the officer have authority to invoke implied consent ?
  • Did the officer administer the breath test properly and was the breath testing machine working properly?
  • On what basis did the police decide to search your person or your property?
