Nashua DWI Lawyers

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 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.

Experienced Defense Attorneys in Nashua

At Shaheen & Gordon, P.A., we are ready to mount a strong defense for your DWI case. We are unique in offering both the personalized legal services of a boutique law firm and the capabilities of a powerhouse law firm. With dozens of seasoned lawyers, paralegals and support staff, we are proud to be among the fastest-growing law firms in Northern New England.

A few of our past victories in DWI cases include:

  • Successfully advocated to have DWI charges dismissed for clients who failed field sobriety tests due to their respective medical conditions;
  • Prevented numerous clients from having their licenses suspended by advocating for them in administrative hearings; and
  • Obtained a verdict of “not guilty” for a client who agreed to take field sobriety tests after being stopped for speeding. We were able to show these tests had been administered improperly and, therefore, yielded questionable readings.

Our dedicated legal advocates will utilize our vast resources, premier legal skills and 40 years of practical experience to get the best results possible for your case.

How to Fight a DWI

It is almost always worth it to fight back against a DWI 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 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; however, every case is unique.
