DWI Attorney Manchester, NH

What Constitutes a DWI Offense in New Hampshire?

Person arrested for DWI

You can be arrested for a DWI if your blood alcohol content is.08 percent or above. If you are a commercial driver, the BAC limit is .04 percent, and if you are under 21, the BAC limit is .02 percent.

You might be hoping that DWIs are viewed less seriously because they are fairly common charges. Unfortunately, that hope is misplaced. New Hampshire fiercely prosecutes DWIs and, if convicted, you could be facing steep fines and penalties. If this is your second or third DWI, the penalties only compound in amount and severity.

Our DWI attorneys in Manchester, NH provide representation that is personalized to your needs and thoroughly prepared. We explore every avenue available to you and work to reach the best possible outcome. While we cannot guarantee a specific result, our experienced Manchester DWI lawyers can go the extra mile on your behalf.

What are the Penalties for a DWI in New Hampshire?

Penalties for a first-offense DWI (over 21) include the following:

  • Fines between $500 and $1,200
  • Mandatory license suspension of nine months up to two years
  • Screening assessment within 14 days of conviction
  • Completion of a state-approved DWI course
  • Potential installation of an ignition interlock device

Although the minimum mandatory license suspension is nine months, the driver can petition for license reinstatement after 90 days in some cases.

Can I Refuse a Breath or Blood Test?

Refusal of a test means automatic license suspension and the likelihood that your refusal will be used against you in court to attempt to prove your guilt. Our attorneys can work with you to try to get your license reinstated and help inform you of your best options.

How Long Does a DWI Stay on Your Record in New Hampshire?

A DWI can have long-lasting consequences in your life. Like many other states, New Hampshire law requires that a DWI stays on the driver’s record for 10 years. If you are facing a DWI charge, do not hesitate to contact our defense attorneys for effective representation.
