A DUI Conviction Can Change Your Life

Your Finances, Your Job, Your Right To Drive And Possibly Your Freedom Are All At Risk

The right to operate a motor vehicle is among the most important aspects of people's lives. If you lose your driver's license due to a drunk driving conviction, it will affect how you have to approach each day. That is why it is so important, if you face charges of drunk driving, to enlist the services of an experienced DUI attorney.

The criminal defense attorneys at Backus, Meyer & Branch, LLP, have extensive experience defending individuals in DUI cases. We represent clients in Hillsborough County and throughout New Hampshire, including Durham and Hanover, from our office in Manchester. We handle a number of DUI cases for a flat fee that varies depending upon the complexity of the case.

For many years, attorney was the only attorney in New Hampshire to be recognized by Best Lawyers in America in the DUI/DWI category. Best Lawyers is a highly regarded peer review publication that serves the legal profession.

Whether you face a first-time DUI conviction or you have prior DUI convictions on your record, there is a lot at stake. If convicted, fines, court costs and mandatory classes typically cost thousands of dollars. In addition, you face suspension of your license for nine months or more. We know how to minimize the impact that a DUI charge will have on your finances and your freedoms.

Your Case Is Too Important For A Cookie-Cutter Approach

Some New Hampshire firms operate "DUI mills." They use the same formulaic approach to run as many clients as possible through the system with little regard to the short- and long-term impacts on their clients. These firms are mostly interested in resolving each case as quickly as possible, collecting their legal fees and moving on to the next one.

The lawyers at Backus, Meyer & Branch, LLP, take the time to review the unique facts of each case and develop a strategy that best serves each client. In some cases, it may make sense to challenge the accuracy or legality of a roadside sobriety test. In other instances, reaching an alternative resolution that includes reduced charges may be the best option.
