Aggressive, Skillful and Experienced Defense

Helping motorists protect their rights, following an OWI

Being pulled over for a traffic stop is often described as an uncomfortable and nerve wrecking position for residents in Iowa. While a driver might be let go with a warning, such a situation is not likely to occur when a driver is accused of drunk driving. Facing an OWI charge is unlike other traffic violations because the presumed drunk driver could lose his or her license and even face harsher penalties, such as fines and jail time.

While it is a tough predicament to be in, drivers accused of an OWI should understand that there are defense options available to them. At J Dean Keegan and Thomas D.S. Farnsworth, Attorneys at Law, our dedicated legal team has the experience to help drivers in the Iowa City area defeat an OWI.

Our attorneys are well versed in the defense strategies available. By using the specific details of our clients' cases, we will determine which strategy will be the most effective at meeting their goals. For instance, we will determine if the stop was legal, if any rights were violated, if a breath test was conducted properly and if the police had a basis to search one's person or property.

We develop defenses that anticipate what the prosecution will do. In addition, with our extensive experience, our legal team will work diligently to have evidence against their clients suppressed. Taking such a step could help reduce or even dismiss charges.

To learn more, check out our law firm's drunk driving website. Even though an OWI is considered a traffic violation, it should not be treated like a speeding ticket. Those facing such a charge should understand their rights and abilities to fight the charges against them.
