Major Motor Vehicle Offenses

Major Motor Vehicle Offenses (Non-DWI)

Shaheen & Gordon’s criminal defense lawyers understand that what often appear as minor motor vehicle offenses may result in major problems for our clients. Routine vehicular stops regularly escalate to charges for major motor vehicle driving violations. Major motor vehicle driving violations may result in license losses, significant fines, a points assessment and have Habitual Offender consequences.

When our attorneys approach any case, they evaluate the reason for the stop, the roadside discussion between the officer and driver and the propriety of any search or detention that follows. Our team then identifies legal, factual and common sense issues that may be effective in either improving a case negotiation or determining whether to advise a client to try a case.

The accumulation of points may result in suspension of driving privileges. Multiple major motor vehicle convictions may also result in certification as a Habitual Offender. These risks require our attorneys to analyze a motor vehicle case from all angles, bearing the best interests of our clients in mind.

Motor vehicle offenses are adjudicated in New Hampshire’s Circuit Court system and are prosecuted by either attorneys or the police officer prosecutors. Our defense lawyers appear week in and week out in Circuit Courts across the State, have developed strong working relationships with police officers and prosecutors and rely on that experience to broker the best available results for our clients. When negotiations fail, they work to prepare a case for trial and are uniquely proud of their success in court.

Our attorneys regularly represent clients in a range of major motor vehicle driving violations, including:

  • Driving After Revocation or Suspension;
  • Conduct After an Accident;
  • Racing on Highways;
  • Reckless Driving;
  • Negligent Driving;
  • Passing a School Bus;
