DWI cases in NH must be fought in two different tribunals. First, you must contend with the New Hampshire DMV's attempt to revoke your license to drive within 30 days following your arrest. Then at the same time, you must address the criminal charges and possible license suspension from a Judge by the local district court.
Every case is different. However, the first thing to do is to plea not guilty in court. Then we may request a hearing at the DMV to challenge the Department of Motor Vehicles efforts to suspend your license. We review the police reports to see if the officer had sufficient reasons to stop you and to arrest you. We examine and challenge the evidence that the police think proves you drove while you were impaired, including field sobriety tests.
We may go to the scene of your arrest. We inspect the same area. We drive the same streets that you drove on at the time of your arrest to evaluate the driving conditions for ourselves.
If the police believe that you did not perform well on the field sobriety tests, then we look to see why. We may inspect the surface area where you were told to do the tests. We inquire as to whether the officer properly instructed you on how to take these "tests". We inquire as to whether you have any medical conditions that would have hindered your ability to perform these roadside contortions.
We evaluate the best elements to challenge and attack those elements.
