Todd Miler who shares office space with me handles OWI cases in central Iowa. His availability to me has allowed me to watch how the law works to handle the criminal defense of these cases. I've been handling the PI side of drunken driving cases now for the better part of 30 years and they can be a challenge. The law is somewhat convoluted and patched together from a public policy trying to deter drinking and driving while trying not to compensate those who are drunk and driving.

Here are some stories for today. Contact information: [email protected] and 515-222-1110.
