There is no such thing as a "minor criminal charge" when you are the one who has been arrested. At Backus, Meyer & Branch, LLP, in Manchester, we understand this. We know how stressful a criminal charge can be, not only for you, but also for your loved ones. That's why our attorneys strive to resolve criminal cases as quickly as possible while protecting your rights and working to produce the best possible outcome.
Sometimes it makes sense to go to trial in order to keep your record clean. Other times, the best solution is to plead guilty to reduced charges because it will keep you out of jail and cause minimum disruption to your work and family life. Because each case is unique, our experienced criminal defense attorneys carefully review the facts in order to develop a legal strategy that makes the best sense.
Our criminal defense attorneys have extensive experience in local, state and federal courts. Attorney Campbell tried and won his first criminal case in 1994. He has been recognized in Best Lawyers in America in criminal defense since 2008. For many years, he was the only attorney in New Hampshire to receive this designation in the DUI/DWI category. Best Lawyers is among the oldest and most respected peer review publications in the legal profession.
Experienced In A Wide Variety Of Criminal Cases
We represent clients throughout Hillsborough County and surrounding counties, as well as in Massachusetts in a broad scope of criminal cases, including:
- Drunk driving — Don't underestimate the consequences of a DWI conviction. Even a first conviction could result in a suspended license and possible jail sentence.
- Assault and other violent crimes — A conviction on charges of felony assault, sexual assault, rape, robbery or any crime involving force or the threat of violence poses serious consequences.
- White collar crimes — Charges of fraud, forgery, embezzlement, identity theft and similar crimes are too serious to rely on inexperienced criminal defense.
- Homicide — A homicide charge can stem from a fatal drunk driving accident or an altercation. It is important to select an attorney who has tried homicide cases before.
We Keep You Informed From Start To Finish
One of the most stressful aspects of facing criminal charges is not knowing the status of your case from one day to the next. That's why our attorneys work closely with every client — from an initial consultation through the resolution of a case. We review your options, possible outcomes and next steps at every phase.
We provide experienced legal counsel at reasonable rates. Many cases are handled for a flat fee, so you will know your total legal fees upfront. The first step is to discuss your case and develop a plan of action. Call or email us to schedule an appointment.
