Dean received a Bachelor of General Studies degree from the University of Iowa with coursework emphasis in Social Work and Counseling. From 1979 until 1982 Dean worked as a probation officer with a caseload exclusively of people who were convicted of Operating While Intoxicated. In 1982 Dean went to work for the University Hospitals and Clinics in Iowa City as a Chemical Dependency Counselor. While employed there Dean co-authorized a theoretical model for the treatment for alcoholism which he presented at the Thirty-First International Institute on the Prevention and Treatment of Alcoholism in Rome, Italy.

In 2008 Dean was accepted for admittance into the National College for DUI Defense, an organization that promotes effective and aggressive defense of citizens accused of driving under the influence.  This organization sponsors seminars for defense attorneys to hone their skills in the defense of OWI and DUI cases.  In June of 2009, Dean attended a 28 hour compreneisve seminar co-sponsored by the College covering the forensics of blood and urine testing.  And in April of 2009, he completed training in the National Highway Safety Administration and International Assocation of Chiefs of POlice DWI Detection and Standardized Field Sobriety Testing - the same training that officers receive when they learn to administer field sobriety tests.

Dean currently maintains offices in Iowa City and Cedar Rapids, Iowa. His practice is limited to criminal defense with a major component being Operating While Intoxicated cases. Dean has presented at several conferences on topics related to OWI defense, including field sobriety testing, jury selection in OWI cases, Drug Recognition Evaluation protocols, and the use of video in OWI defense.

SAMPLE LEGAL CASES

Chronic Lupus Patients Can Qualify For Disability Benefits
The Social Security Administration can provide disability benefits to a person who suffers from any ailment, including lupus, a severe autoimmune disease, if the person had it for more than 12 months and cannot earn a living as a result. Applying for disability benefits can become a confusing and complicated process if you do not know about the entire process.
What Is Agoraphobia and How to Get Disability Benefits for It?
Agoraphobia, the fear of being in enclosed or open spaces, such as being in a crowd can be a crippling anxiety disorder. You may avoid these places to prevent feelings of being trapped, embarrassed or helpless. You may also find difficulty in leaving your home in the first place if you have agoraphobia and decide to avoid certain activities altogether as a result.
What to Do After a Texas Car Accident Caused By Damaged Roads
While most car accidents result from driver negligence, a large number of car accidents occur because of poor road conditions, whether due to improper maintenance, incomplete construction, faulty design, or poor signage. Depending on the specific roadway, federal, state, and local government authorities may be responsible for the road on which you drive. These government agencies are responsible for building and maintaining the roads for travelers' safety. If they fail to do so and the poor road conditions lead to an accident that causes injuries, the victim can file a personal injury claim to seek recovery for their damages.
