Busted for DUI in NH?
DUI / DWI cases in NH are battles to be fought on two fronts. First, you must contend with the New Hampshire DMV‘s attempt to revoke your license to drive within 30 days following your arrest. Then at the same time, you must fight to keep your license from being suspended by the local district court.
At Shepherd & Osborne, we will have your back in both arenas. Your license to drive is too valuable to just handover without a fight. If you are like most people, your license to drive is your portal to the rest of the world. You need it to drive to work, to visit friends and family, to grocery shop, to take your kids to school or sports, and to participate in other daily activities that make up much of your life.
How does one fight a DUI charge?
Every case is different. First, we have you plea not guilty in court. Then we request a hearing at the DMV whereby we challenge their efforts to revoke your license. We comb through the police reports to see if the officer even had sufficient reasons to arrest you. We examine and challenge the evidence that the police think proves you drove while you were impaired.
If the police believe that your driving was problematic, we go to the scene of your arrest. We inspect the same area. We drive the same streets that you drove on at the time of your arrest to see how good or poor the driving conditions are for ourselves.
If the police believe that you did not perform well on the field sobriety tests where you walk the line and touch your nose, then we look to see why. We inspect the surface area where you were told to do the tests. We inquire as to whether the officer properly instructed you on how to take these “tests”. We inquire as to whether you have any medical conditions that would have hindered your ability to perform these roadside contortions.
At the end of the day, we do not stop working for you until we have achieved the best result possible for your case.
