Protecting the Rights of New Hampshire Residents in Criminal Court

The days following an arrest and criminal charge may feel unreal and disorienting. For many, it constitutes the most difficult time of their life. However, a misdemeanor or felony charge is not the same as conviction—you still have time to act to protect yourself, your family and your future.

With a team of over 40 attorneys, Shaheen & Gordon, P.A. is prepared to fight for you. Although we work on many cases at a time, we take great care in making sure every client is treated as the individual they are—not as another case file. We are nationally known for providing one-on-one, personalized representation to our clients, a results-driven approach made possible by our large team of attorneys, legal experts and support staff.

Hiring a Criminal Defense Attorney

A good criminal defense lawyer must fully understand the risks associated with a criminal charge: hefty fines, incarceration, the loss of certain constitutional rights, the emotional toll of the criminal hearing and the long-term consequences of conviction. Further, a good lawyer must know how to communicate these risks to you, as well as how to mitigate them.

Our team at Shaheen & Gordon, P.A. is well versed in the multifaceted nature of criminal cases, and we know how to effectively mount a strong defense for those facing a variety of criminal charges. Regardless of the breadth of your case, our Concord defense attorneys will fight to protect your future. After all, it is our goal to reduce the impact a criminal case will have on you and your loved ones.

Our Approach to Criminal Defense Law

Informed by decades of experience, our Concord defense lawyers know how to spot common factual, legal and constitutional issues in criminal cases. Fortunately, a simple mistake on the part of a law enforcement officer could lead to a reduced penalty or a dropped charge.

We will look to uncover key issues, such as those pertaining to the following:

  • Due process
  • Miranda rights
  • Mental health issues
  • Scientific testing
  • Search and seizure

We are also highly competent in using polished, sophisticated writing and thorough research in our motion practice. This often leads to an improved bargaining position even before trial begins. For example, we have had much success in filing motions to dismiss cases, as well as to suppress evidence obtained in violation of our clients’ constitutional rights.
