Des Moines DUI Lawyers

Committed to Protecting Our Clients’ Rights

In Iowa, driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol is called “operating while intoxicated,” or OWI. This is an incredibly serious criminal offense that can be charged as either a misdemeanor or a felony depending on the circumstances. Regardless of the exact charge you face, the penalties can be life-changing. You could be facing license suspension, jail time, fines, and points on your license among other consequences.

To mitigate or avoid these penalties, you will need to retain a knowledgeable and experienced OWI lawyer. Our Des Moines DUI defense attorneys have extensive experience representing Iowans who have been accused of drinking and driving or driving under the influence of controlled substances.

Let us get started on your case with a free consultation. Call (515) 298-5056 now.

BAC Limits in OWI Charges

Driving a vehicle with a BAC (blood alcohol concentration) of 0.08% or higher can result in OWI charges in Iowa and most other states around the country. You can also be charged with OWI for driving with any amount of a controlled substance in your system as determined by chemical testing. Iowa has a zero-tolerance policy for drunk drivers under the age of 21. Any driver under 21 who is found with a BAC of 0.02% or more can be charged with OWI.

Iowa’s Implied Consent Law

In Iowa, all drivers on the state’s roadways automatically consent to an OWI test. This means that if you are pulled over with reasonable suspicion that you are under the influence of drugs or alcohol, you are deemed to have given consent to a blood, breath, urine, or other chemical test. Refusing to take a chemical test will result in a one-year license revocation, or a two-year license revocation for repeat offenders.

Avoid the Harsh Penalties of a DUI Conviction

If you have been charged with OWI, a conviction can have a profound impact on your present-day life and your future.
