Arrested for DWI in New Hampshire?

Establishing Cause for a Drunk Driving Arrest

Most DWI investigations begin even before a motor vehicle stop as officers are trained to observe clues for driver impairment while a vehicle is in motion. This can include weaving, failure to adhere to traffic signals and signs and crossing the fog line or yellow line, among several others. Typically, a motor vehicle stop occurs based on an allegation that the driver has committed a motor vehicle offense. During police interactions with a suspect, they continue to make observations of clues consistent with impairment, including odor of alcohol, glassy and bloodshot eyes and slow, slurred or deliberate speech. Based on suspicion for driver impairment, officers typically request that a driver perform Field Sobriety Tests (FSTs) and, possibly a Preliminary Breath Test (PBT) on the roadside. Throughout this process, investigating officers collect clues for driver impairment and rely on those clues to establish probable cause to make an arrest. Understanding the probable cause standard is critical when defending DWI cases.

Legal Assistance from New Hampshire DWI Attorneys

If an investigating officer believes that you have failed the field sobriety tests or a Preliminary Breath Test, he or she may place you under arrest for driving while intoxicated (DWI) or driving under the influence (DUI). You have constitutional rights when you are arrested for DWI and a New Hampshire DWI lawyer from our firm can inform you of your rights. We assist our clients through the administrative license suspension process and court proceedings, strive to avoid DWI convictions and minimize the impact of a license loss for our clients.

At Shaheen & Gordon, P.A., our New Hampshire DWI lawyers can provide you with the guidance that you deserve to navigate the complicated laws and regulations that apply to DWI cases.

We meet with our DWI clients, size up their personal and professional circumstances, inform them of the exposure that they face to license losses, fines and, in some cases, jail. We work with our clients to identify their goals in defending impaired driving cases and fashion a strategy to reach those goals. We identify factual, legal and constitutional issues, determine if further investigation is necessary and prepare a defense, advising you of the risks and rewards of taking a case to trial. When convictions occur, we can help you appeal your DUI and assist you through the process to restore your driving privileges.
