That many people trusting Larson & Evenson to help them is your best indication of quality representation.  Larson has represented similar numbers of clients EVERY YEAR, for over 30 years.  He co-founded his own firm in 1984, previously known as Johnston, Larson, Potterfield, Zimmerman and Nathanson (the Johnston firm is still an established Iowa City firm), and established Larson & Evenson in 1994 with Amy Evenson.  Larson's firm has been as large as 11 attorneys in the firm at times over the years, and has since 1994 settled on 2 or 3 attorneys as the size firm it prefers. 

Larson & Evenson is conveniently located just 2 blocks east of the Courthouse, at 250 E. Court.  Their beautiful new office, taking up the Court Street side of the ground floor of the Telluride Building at the corner of Linn and Court, allows convenient front-door metered parking although it's just a block from downtown.  The office is open 8-4 Monday through Friday, staffed by their exceptional legal assistant Rebecca McCusker, and evening and weekend appointments are cheerfully made.  
We have a well-deserved reputation of excellence in personal injury and criminal defense cases.

As of July 1, Iowans who have been suspended for an OWI, will be able to get work or school permits ( called a temporary restricted license or TRL) that allow ALL driving, not just for work or school.  That means you can drive absolutely everywhere, as long as you have a TRL. You still have to have the SR22 insurance posted, and install an ignition interlock device, but you can drive anywhere, anytime.  
Also, the law abolished the old "hard" suspensions.  So if you had a 3rd offense OWI, you no longer have to wait a year to get a TRL.  Or if you blew above .150 on the breath test, you don't have to wait 30 days to qualify for your TRL.  Or if you are under 21, no longer do you need to wait 60 days to get a TRL.  
So if you have had an OWI recently, you will want to appeal your suspension, so that all of it falls after July 1 so you can take advantage of the new law's provisions.  Call us to hear more.  
The law only applies to those suspended for OWI, not other suspensions.
