Derry DUI Lawyers

Attorneys Advocating for Residents of the Derry Area

Derry is a town in Rockingham County with a population of about 33,000 residents. The town’s nickname is “Spacetown,” a tribute to the fact that the town is the birthplace of Alan Shepard, who was the first astronaut from the U.S. in space. The town was also the home of the famous poet Robert Frost. Some of its attractions include the Adams Memorial Opera House, the Derry Historical Society & Museum, and the Robert Frost Farm, which is designated as a National Historic Landmark. Residents of Derry sometimes find themselves facing drunk driving charges, involved in accidents, or going through a family law dispute. If you are involved in a legal matter in Derry, it is important to seek the help of an attorney who can assess the details of your case. Our Derry DUI lawyers can help you fight a drunk driving charge, while our firm also is skilled in personal injury and divorce matters.

DUI or DWI Charges

Criminal charges for DWI can result in hefty fines, community service, license suspension and revocation, and even jail time. If you have been charged with a DWI, it is important to hire an experienced lawyer who can fight for your rights. The basic offense of driving while intoxicated (DWI), also often known as “DUI,” in New Hampshire consists of getting behind the wheel with a blood alcohol content (BAC) of 0.08 percent or higher. An aggravated DWI involves operating or trying to operate a motor vehicle while impaired by alcohol or drugs or with a BAC of 0.08 percent or higher, in addition to exceeding the speed limit by more than 30 miles per hour, causing a collision resulting in “serious bodily injuries,” attempting to elude a pursuing police officer in various ways, or having a passenger under 16 years of age. A DUI attorney in the Derry area can help investigate the circumstances of your situation and develop an appropriate strategy for you.

Criminal Defense

We also represent clients in other types of criminal matters in New Hampshire. If you have been charged with a crime, you should know that you have certain rights that should be protected. For example, the Fourth Amendment of the United States Constitution and New Hampshire laws protect a person’s right to be free from unreasonable searches and seizures by the police. Although there are some limited exceptions, this normally means that an individual’s home, vehicle, and person cannot be searched without probable cause or a valid search warrant issued by a judge. Thus, if incriminating evidence (such as drugs) was found in violation of your Fourth Amendment rights, that evidence could be excluded from the case.

Civil Representation

In addition to serving as Derry DUI attorneys and criminal lawyers, we also assist clients in civil cases in the areas of family law and personal injury. Family law cases typically include matters such as divorce, child custody, child support, and property division. Resolving these matters can be emotionally draining, but we will try to make the process as seamless as possible for you.

Personal injury law covers cases arising from accidents like car crashes, motorcycle accidents, slip and falls, medical malpractice, and workplace accidents. If you have been hurt in an accident caused by someone else’s negligence, we can help. We know how to navigate these complex claims and help you recover the compensation that you are entitled to receive for your harm. Such compensation typically includes medical expenses, rehabilitation costs, pain and suffering, lost wages, and any other losses stemming from the accident.
