We know that understanding our clients and how the outcomes of their cases will impact them helps us to advocate on their behalf more effectively.

We rely on the information we learn about you and your case to inform our approach to negotiations with the prosecution and form our objectives going forward. The attorney-client relationship is sacrosanct to us, and especially so in criminal cases. When a New Hampshire defense attorney from Shaheen & Gordon, P.A. works with you to build a personalized defense, we want you to rest assured with confidence that we’ll be your best advocate during litigation and court proceedings.

Identifying Factual, Legal & Constitutional Issues

As Shaheen & Gordon, P.A. handles your case, our attorneys will be vigilant for fundamental constitutional concerns regarding your case. Incorporating these into negotiations, pre-trial motions, and trial presentations can all work together to lessen or eliminate your accountability for criminal charges levied against you.

Common issues we look for include those pertaining to:

  • Miranda Rights
  • Search and seizure
  • Competency
  • Due process
  • Mental health matters
  • Competency

Staying on top of concerns related to these issues and blending them into your case can strengthen your defense case.

We also pride ourselves on our motion practice, in which we use sophisticated legal writing and research to litigate crucial issues before your trial. We often find that we can improve our bargaining position before trials by contemplating motions to dismiss cases and suppress evidence that may be unfair to you. If that should not succeed, we focus on pretrial litigation to narrow down cases and improve your chances of success during trial.

Scientific & Expert Issues

Advances in technology have had an enormous impact on the prosecution and defense of criminal cases. Well-rounded work as a criminal defense lawyer is no longer just about effective courtroom presentation, but also requires an understanding of the scientific underpinnings of a case. In any given case, DNA testing, bloodstain pattern analysis, computer forensics, mental health issues, forensic auditing, polygraph examinations, chemical testing, fingerprint comparison, tool mark analysis and psycho-sexual evaluations may surface among a myriad of scientific issues.

Our New Hampshire criminal defense lawyers have experience presenting and defending scientific evidence in court and have established trusted relationships with qualified experts in order to size up these issues, develop a plan of attack, and poke holes in the prosecution’s theory.
