Attorney With Relevant Criminal Defense Experience

Obtaining the best outcome in a criminal justice matter requires dedication, skill and focus. Whether you are facing major felony sex crime charges or a minor traffic violation, it is important to obtain legal representation from an attorney who focuses on criminal defense rather than a general practitioner. In short, you need a lawyer who has experience in the area in which he or she practices.

The attorneys of Spellman Law focuses exclusively on defending Iowa clients against criminal charges. Attorneys Sean P. Spellman and Mary Spellman are criminal defense lawyers with the experience, skill and focus to help you get the best results possible.


Spellman Law, P.C., helps Iowa clients with operating while intoxicated/driving under the influence (OWI/DUI) matters that include:

Drug Crimes

Spellman Law, P.C., defends clients against a wide variety of drug-related criminal charges that include:

Federal Criminal Defense

Criminal defense in the federal court looks much different from state or other local courts, requiring unique experience and attention to procedural detail. The attorneys at Spellman Law have experience handling Internet crimes, federal drug crimes and other federal criminal matters for clients of the firm.

Felonies/White Collar Offenses

In felony cases, the already high stakes are even more pronounced, as felony convictions involve even harsher penalties and damage to reputations. Spellman Law, P.C., has experience defending Iowa clients against felony and white collar crime charges.

Traffic/DOT Violations

We handle all types of traffic violations and Department of Transportation (DOT) matters, including:

  • Hit-and-run
  • Commercial driver’s license (CDL) issues
  • Speeding tickets
  • Moving violations
  • Serious violations
  • Habitual offender violations
  • Work permit (temporary restricted license, or TRL) matters

Illegal Search and Seizure

Illegal search and seizure is at the heart of Spellman Law’s work as Des Moines state and federal criminal defense attorneys. There are strict limits to what police are allowed to do when it comes to stopping, investigating, arresting, questioning and incarcerating criminal suspects. When evidence is gathered from an illegal search and seizure, Spellman Law, P.C., can often make sure that evidence is suppressed, undercutting the prosecutor’s case.
