Charged with OWI – Yes, you need a lawyer!
If you think being arrested for OWI was stupid or a mistake, try going to court without a lawyer. The charge is serious, do not be mistaken. Depending on the course of your case, you will realize the consequences for years to come. Travel restrictions to foreign countries, voting rights, right to have firearms and your right to drive are just a few things to think about.
Hiring a lawyer who knows what they are doing is a must. You need a lawyer who has the knowledge of 321J.2 of the Code of Iowa. When you contact one of our OWI lawyers, tell them you found them at OWIbuster.com and your initial consultation will be free. Ask the lawyer … what do you think you can do to help me?
