DWI/DUI Trial Lawyers in New Hampshire
We’re Prepared to Fight for You
DUI/DWI trials are generally only one or two hours in length, but they require a great deal of preparation. That preparation begins as soon as we meet the client. Our first meeting with you allows us to understand the DUI case and the facts from your perspective. Having your view helps us to better understand the police report and how to defend the case at trial. In our discussion, we will learn whether there are witnesses who can be helpful at the trial of your DWI. You can trust our New Hampshire DWI/DUI trial lawyers at Douglas, Leonard & Garvey, P.C. to fight on your behalf.
Evidence Needed at DWI Trials
Once our New Hampshire DWI/DUI trial lawyers get the police report from the prosecutor, we review it to identify the weaknesses in the State’s DWI case against you. Often, it’s as much what the officer didn’t write as it is what he did write. We will use the knowledge we’ve gained from you and the police report to cross-examine the officer at your administrative license suspension hearing. We will get a transcript from that hearing, and use it to set the case up for trial. By that point, we will have locked in the officer’s testimony so they can’t throw anything new at you at your DWI/DUI trial. At trial, we aggressively cross-examine the officer and knock holes in the State’s case.
At trial, the state needs to prove all three elements of the DUI charge:
- You were operating a motor vehicle
- You were on a public way
- You were impaired
If the state can’t prove all three elements, you are found not guilty. Our attorneys have won DUI trials on all three elements. Contact a New Hampshire DWI lawyer at Douglas, Leonard & Garvey, P.C. to aggressively defend against your DWI arrest. Our experienced attorneys will represent you in court and administrative license suspension hearings.
