Why Do You Need An Attorney?
1. To determine if there are issues surrounding the officer stopping your vehicle or other mistakes made by law enforcement:
Was there probable cause under Iowa law?
Were the field tests performed correctly?
Were your rights violated?
Were you allowed to call an attorney, a friend, a relative and when? Did this violate Iowa Code Section 804.20
2. To help with the logistics and statutory issues surrounding an OWI:
How to obtain copies of all police reports?
How to obtain copies of all videos from the police vehicle?
How to obtain copies of 911 and dispatch tapes before they are destroyed?
What Motions to file in Court?
Do I qualify for a Deferred Judgment or any reductions in legal penalties?
3. To re-obtain your driver’s license:
You only have 10 days to appeal the suspension of your license?
How do I get a stay to stop the revocation of my driver’s license so I can still drive?
These questions, if not handled properly, could result in your conviction of OWI and the revocation of your driver’s license.
