Real Results for Real People

When You Need to Win, We Won’t Stop Fighting for You


Our Personalized, Creative & Comprehensive Approach

Our criminal defense attorneys in New Hampshire help many clients at one time work out a plan of action for their defense, but our goal at Shaheen & Gordon, P.A. is to make each client feel like they’re the only client we’ve got.

One way we work toward this effect by helping our clients understand their case in simple and plain language. By keeping the legal jargon in the courtroom, we feel you’ll be able to better understand your options and the status of your case.

We’ll endeavor to inspire your confidence in us by proactively working with you to build a comprehensive and creative approach to help you secure your best possible future. We’ll take time to get to know you as a person and size up the legal and factual issues in your case so that we can spot issues pertaining to procedure or evidence that can mitigate your responsibility.

    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.

    Need Help? 
    We're Here for You.

    We can’t change what happened, but we will do everything in our power to get you the justice you deserve. Our experienced legal team will go to the mat to make things right for you, supported by the resources they need to succeed.
