Top 3 Qualities to look for in Your Attorney

Watch Our Video

We believe your attorney should not speak in legalese

Finding an attorney who is a “real person” can be difficult. Many attorneys surround themselves almost exclusively with other attorneys and are accustomed to speaking in ivory tower legalese.  You should be able to connect with your attorney on a personal level, and he or she should speak to you in plain language that you can understand.  You will be working very closely with this person on issues that are very important to you. It is important that he or she be down-to-earth and someone that you connect with.

We believe your attorney should be accessible

The most common complaint that clients have of their attorneys is that the attorney is unreachable, does not communicate with them regularly, or does not promptly return your calls.  Your attorney should reach out to you about your case regularly and respond within 24 hours to calls and e-mails.  An open line of communication between you and your attorney is essential to building trust.

We believe your attorney should be realistic with you about costs and outcomes

Your attorney’s goal should not be to win at all costs.  Rather, it should be to achieve a favorable outcome for you as efficiently as possible.  It is important that your attorney set realistic expectations at the outset as to the costs you should expect, the concerns that the attorney has about the outcome of your case, and the length of time that you should expect your case to take.

Regardless of the nature of your case, we have an experienced attorney who will focus on your individual needs. Our team of attorneys works closely together, bringing each of their different fields of experience to bear in order to optimize our client care.

Further Reading from our Polk County Traffic Attorneys

What is an Aggravated OWI in Iowa?

In this video, our Polk County traffic attorneys explain how an aggravated OWI​ involves certain aggravating factors that elevate the charge from a serious misdemeanor to an aggravated misdemeanor​ or felony misdemeanor. Operating While Intoxicated (OWI), is the same as a DUI or DWI in other states, just different terminology. An individual commits the offense of operating while intoxicated if he or she operates a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol or other drug or a combination of the two. As in all other states, it is illegal to have a blood alcohol content (BAC) of 0.08% or higher while driving, or having a controlled substance in the blood as tested through blood, urine, or breathalyzer.

Iowa's OWI Deferred Adjudication Program

In this video, our Polk County traffic attorneys explain how the determination of whether an offender will be granted deferred adjudication is within the discretion of the judge on the case. However, to be eligible for deferred judgment, the offender’s OWI cannot involve injuries to another person and the offender:

  • Hasn't been previously convicted of an OWI or received a deferred judgment;
  • Hasn't had a previous OWI-related license revocation;
  • Submitted to chemical testing and had a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) level of .15% or less; and
  • Didn't refuse chemical testing under Iowa’s implied consent laws.

Generally, prior DUI/OWI convictions and deferred judgments from out of state are also considered in this determination. If you have an out of state conviction, you likely do not qualify for this program.
