1st offense drunk driving charges with breathalyzer test results as evidence, and Attorney Matt Lindholm wins a not guilty verdict in 6 minutes flat! The attorneys at Gourley, Rehkemper & Lindholm get results!
Our firm of tough drunk driving defense lawyers will leave no rock unturned as we fight to help you get results, save your driver's license and avoid jail time and fines. We will help you understand your rights. We will provide you with a drivers' rights card to keep you informed, and we'll work hard to make sure that police and prosecutors respect those rights.
If you refused the direct breath test at the station you face an automatic suspension of your driving privileges for one or more years. Likewise, if you submitted to a test that indicates an alcohol concentration of .08 or more (.02 or more if under 21 and .04 or more if operating a commercial vehicle), your driver's license may also be suspended for 60 days up to 6 years.
You have 10 days
From the date of your arrest, you have 10 days to file an appeal and request a hearing with the Iowa Department of Transportation. Contact our office immediately for assistance!
In this state, a first-time charge alone is a serious misdemeanor punishable by up to 1 year in jail and a fine of up to $1,500. If you are convicted of a first offense, the minimum possible punishment is 2 days in jail and a fine of $1,250.00.
Not only do you face a criminal charge, but you also face revocation of your drivers license. If you refused a breathalyzer test, that alone could result in a license suspension of a year.
We also represent people who have been accused of prior drunk driving offenses (as well as those who have been convicted on those prior's), people who are facing much stiffer penalties, and people who are accused of vehicular homicide where a fatal accident was involved.
At Gourley, Rehkemper & Lindholm our drunk driving defense lawyers can walk you through your case. Because we're members of the National College of DUI Defense and are certified in field sobriety tests we can find out if police did their job correctly and respected your rights. We also help you with administrative hearings at the Department of Transportation to extend your driving privileges or get you a work license.

Drunk driving laws in Iowa bring in big dollars to the state, so police and prosecutors are aggressive in charging people with an OWI, giving them a fine and jail time.
