Nashua DWI Lawyer
Protecting Clients Charged with Drunk and Impaired Driving
The state of New Hampshire takes driving while intoxicated (DWI), also referred to as driving under the influence (DUI) and operating under the influence (OUI), very seriously. Unfortunately, this has led to an overcorrection of the problem, with DWIs often prosecuted way harsher than what is warranted by the facts.
If you have been charged with a DWI, it is highly recommended that you have a criminal defense lawyer to advocate for you. With a court date scheduled and an impending administrative hearing, time can seem to fly by—you only have so long to protect yourself and your future. From license suspension to jail time, fines, probation, a criminal record and more, a DWI conviction can bring penalties that follow you for years to come.

How to Fight a DWI
It is almost always worth it to fight back against a DWI or DUI charge, as it is often possible to have such charges reduced or dropped entirely. Often, this is done by identifying mistakes made by law enforcement, highlighting a lack of evidence, exposing errors in sobriety tests or by negotiating with the prosecutor to reduce criminal charges, among other tactics.
For example, many breath tests are not administered correctly. This can result in a higher blood alcohol concentration (BAC) reading than your actual BAC at the time and, therefore, a groundless charge.
In cases in which conviction seems unavoidable, it may be possible to reduce the penalty by agreeing to complete the Impaired Driver Care Management Program (IDCMP). This can shave time off a jail sentence, probation, license suspension, etc.
There is no surefire way to beat a DWI or DUI; however, every criminal case is unique.
