Why Hire a DUI or DWI Lawyer

DUI law is a specialty, and a good DUI lawyer can make a big difference in the results you get. If you decide to hire a lawyer, you’ll want to find someone who focuses on DUI cases, rather than using a general practice lawyer.

Resources for Finding DUI Lawyers

Here are some other ways to find a DUI lawyer:

Ask around. Without a doubt, the best way to find a good lawyer is to ask friends, family, work associates -- anyone you know and trust. Even if they don’t personally know a DUI lawyer, they may know another lawyer they like. And that lawyer may be able to direct you to a good DUI attorney.

Ask your local bar association. The Iowa State Bar Association maintains a lawyer directory. This directory can provide you with names of lawyers in your area who are in good standing with the bar association. Do keep in mind, however, that the bar association doesn’t screen the lawyers for the amount of experience they have or for their competence. It’s up to you to interview each attorney to find out whether they have the experience you need.

Online lawyer directories. Here are a few websites that offer directories of attorneys serving Iowa. Because different attorneys list with different directories, we offer you a choice so you can consider a selection of Iowa DUI lawyers. Like bar association directories, these lawyers have probably not been screened for their qualifications or competence. Lawyers usually self-report their information, so be prepared to do your homework and ask each lawyer about their experience before hiring anyone.

Low-cost legal aid services. If your income is low, you may be able to get assistance or advice from a local legal aid organization.
