Criminal Defense Lawyers
Charged with a crime in Iowa? You have a constitutional right to a defense attorney.
Sometimes, good people get into bad situations, and the “land of the free” really likes to lock people up. The United States has both the highest total number of people in jail and the highest rate of incarceration of any country on earth.
The state of Iowa has a team of police and prosecutors tasked with securing your conviction and punishing you with fines or jail time that could disrupt your job, your relationships, your family, and your whole life.
Facing the state’s prosecutorial team is daunting. No one should have to do it alone.
If you’ve been charged with a crime in Iowa, call us. We won’t make you feel dismissed or judged — you already have a judge. We’ll walk you through the process step by step, from obtaining bail and attending your initial appearance before a judge, through your arraignment, pretrial conferences, and plea bargaining options, up through trial and sentencing.
Whether you’ve been charged with something as common as marijuana possession or been accused of something more stigmatized, like OWI (DUI/DWI), sexual assault or domestic assault, or theft, you need an Iowa defense lawyer.
You may have concerns ranging from fines and jail time through probation, IDAP classes, losing custody of your children, losing your job, losing your driver’s license, and getting listed on a sex offender registry. That’s overwhelming for anyone.
At Clark and Sears Law, PLLC, we understand that you’re more than a name on a police report and we’re prepared to help you get out of trouble and back to life.
