Perhaps you or a family member has been charged with a driving under the influence (DUI) or driving while impaired (DWI) in New Hampshire. You then face the difficult task of choosing a New Hampshire DUI attorney, and you will probably want to make a decision fairly quickly. There are many factors which should be taken into account before hiring a DUI/DWI attorney.
Ask for recommendations from family members and friends or look online to gather a list of several potential drunk driving defense attorneys before narrowing your choice down. First, you will want someone with significant experience with a wide variety of DWI cases. A lot is at stake when you’ve been charged with a DUI, and you want someone who knows about DUI law and has experience with DUI cases. Check out the websites of any attorneys you are considering. Do they have a lot of helpful information? Are there any links to articles they have written, presentations they’ve done or any specialized DUI training received? Do you feel comfortable with the tone of the website?
You may also wish to contact the bar association since they will be able to confirm that the attorney is licensed to practice in New Hampshire, and tell you whether the attorney has had any disciplinary actions taken against him or her.
Next, you should contact the attorney or the law firm. Ask about fees and time for payment, how quickly the case will be handled, the lawyer or lawyers who will be working on the case, and general drunk driving procedures. Finally, you should choose two or three attorneys to meet in person. How comfortable do you feel around them? How knowledgeable is the lawyer about DUI cases?
