“OWI” is what Iowa calls what lots of other states call a “DUI” or “DWI.” If you’re looking for a DUI lawyer or a DWI attorney but you’re in Iowa, what you’re actually looking for is OWI defense.

OWI is a common charge. The unfortunate reality is that a lot of people don’t realize (or maybe don’t care) how alcohol or other substance consumption impairs their judgment. That, coupled with a painfully high incidence of chronic substance abuse issues in the US and that thing where Iowa has limited public transportation options, has led to a culture where driving after drinking is really cmmon — it seems like everyone is comfortable getting behind the wheel of a car after a beer or nine, and when the bar closes or the strip club tells all the patrons they need to get out of the parking lot, it’s easy to get picked up by the state patrol.
You can be charged with OWI for being intoxicated, for having a blood alcohol content of .08 or higher as measured by a test of your blood, breath, or urine, or if you have any prohibited drugs in your system.
An Iowa OWI attorney can review the state’s evidence and check it against the Iowa code and against existing case law to find out whether any searches were done correctly. An attorney will be able to help guide you through license revocation hearings (and help you get your revocation rescinded if the state doesn’t comply with time restrictions they have regarding properly-submitted requests for hearings and reviews.)
