Out-of-State DUI Attorney in NH

Out-of-State Residents with a New Hampshire DWI

What can you do if you were arrested for driving while intoxicated (DWI) while visiting New Hampshire? If you are arrested for DWI in this state, then your case will be handled in the jurisdiction of your arrest. This can pose a problem for you, as you likely have a life to carry on with in another state. In many cases, Shaheen & Gordon's NH DWI attorneys are able to handle cases for clients even when the client is not present. If at all possible, our firm will help you return home while we handle your DWI.

An added benefit to our firm is that we not only represent clients in New Hampshire, but clients throughout Northern New England. Many of our attorneys are also licensed to practice in neighbor states such as Massachusetts and Maine. If you are a resident of New Hampshire who has been arrested for drunk driving in a neighbor state, then our firm's DWI lawyers can travel to where your arrest took place to handle your case.

If you are convicted for DWI in another state, the administrative suspension affects your ability to drive in any state, not just the state of your arrest or the state in which you are licensed. Our firm can help those who have incurred out-of-state DWI arrests keep their license if at all possible. We understand that losing your license has a significant impact on your day-to-day life, which is why these cases should be handled with the utmost care.

Administrative License Suspension Process

If you have been arrested for a DUI or DWI within the state of New Hampshire, you must address the administrative license suspension process before New Hampshire's Department of Safety as well as the criminal offense of Driving While Intoxicated in a New Hampshire Court.

As stated above, you may suffer a license loss and other penalties in your home state. New Hampshire takes part in the Interstate Motor Vehicle Compact and reports DWI convictions to our sister states.

The compact calls upon a driver's home state to treat a New Hampshire conviction as if it occurred at home, typically applying license loss that would apply in the driver's home state to the New Hampshire conviction. Our criminal defense team regularly defends cases on behalf of out of state residents and can advise you on the consequences of a New Hampshire DWI conviction as well as recommend whether you might wish to consult with a local attorney from your home state in order to better understand the reciprocal penalties that might apply to you. Contact us to speak with a New Hampshire DWI attorney.
