What You Should Expect In Your DWI Defense Case

Today’s blog is focused on assisting you in understanding what your NH DWI lawyer will be doing in order to prepare for your DWI trial, as well as provide you with insight into what a professional and skilled DWI lawyer looks like.

While you are definitely encouraged to continue going to work and living your life as normally as possible, it is guaranteed that you will be preoccupied with your pending case. Preparing a successful defense will necessitate you meeting with your NH DWI lawyer as your case is investigated and he or she uncovers the best method of defending you against your charges.

Crafting An NH DWI Defense

Your lawyer is going to put in a lot of work before you ever attend court, and it is necessary for you to place a great deal of trust in the attorney you choose to hire. While you may only spend a handful of hours with your DWI attorney, he or she will put in many more hours of work that you will never be aware of.

Some of this workload will be standard procedures and practices that are applicable to all DWI cases, such as being trained and certified in blood alcohol concentration (BAC) testing and field sobriety testing, so that he or she can have professional insight into the exact protocols they will be defending you from.

Your DWI lawyer will also spend a number of hours reading through each of the state’s documents, in addition to requesting additional info via discovery that will assist them in building a defense. Your lawyer will file all of your legal motions in an NH court and will take care of all associated paperwork.

A respected and professional New Hampshire DWI lawyer will have an extensive professional network within their community and will be regarded and respected by other judges, lawyers, and even prosecutors. You will be informed of all of your lawyer’s activities through copies of court documents and letters that are sent to you, as well as through monthly statements.

The Hiring of Private Investigators

An experienced DWI lawyer will know when it is time to seek professional assistance of a private investigator. Whether your lawyer maintains the services of a private investigator on their staff or simply has an excellent working relationship with an investigator, if he or she recommends hiring their services, even at an additional expense, trust their recommendation.

Often times, a private investigator has extensive experience working as a law enforcement official or within another related field and is hired for their ability to thoroughly analyze what occurred at a crime scene or in an accident. Moreover, they will have the capabilities required to investigate the backgrounds of the witnesses who have been called to testify against you.

Connect With Your DWI Lawyer

It is important to ensure that you employ the services of a DWI lawyer who will not leave you feeling as though your trial’s outcome would have been different if someone else had represented your case. However, you must also be realistic in your expectations. Even the most seasoned and professional DWI lawyer is not a miracle worker. At the same time, your attorney has an obligation to effectively communicate and behave professionally with you.

If you appear in the courtroom and your lawyer appears to be well-regarded by the prosecutors and the judge, take comfort in this.

Your NH DWI lawyer will not be able to convince prosecutors to drop the charges against you or behave unethically on your behalf, what it does mean is that both parties will respect your lawyer and listen if he or she has valid concerns regarding the Constitutionality or legality of your case.

Under no circumstances should you request or expect your attorney to engage in unethical behavior for the purpose of assisting your case. While you might feel as though you are willing to do anything to win your case, acting on these feelings alone can be damaging to your case and your relationship with your lawyer. Moreover, they could result in additional criminal charges.

Pleadings and Motions Filed In Your DWI Case

If you have hired a dedicated lawyer, he or she will invest time in familiarizing themselves with all the different aspects of your case.

An experienced DWI lawyer will file a variety of motions or pleadings (documents required to obtain information vital to your defense) within the court. Your lawyer will copy a prosecutor’s actions that are taken within the court, and the prosecutor then has the opportunity to respond or challenge these pleadings.

Motions and pleadings must be filed within a specific time frame and must follow a strict standard of protocols. Again, this is where it becomes essential that you have an experienced lawyer by your side. Any legal filing that your lawyer makes must be based upon facts and be relevant to constitutional and legal proceedings. The arguments your legal representation makes on your behalf will be supported by legwork and research your lawyer has conducted on prior case law or how the letter of the law should be interpreted by a New Hampshire court with regards to the intentions of the legislature.

Your NH DWI lawyer is not going to attempt to cover each available possibility. Rather, he or she will choose the most valid and relevant arguments that will either dismiss or reduce the charges against you. Arguing claims and filing frivolous motions that cannot be backed up by established case law and statutes will make your lawyer appear to be unprofessional and could potentially anger a prosecutor or judge, which would make it rather difficult to work out any type of agreement at a later date.

Calling In the Experts

It is common for NH DWI attorneys to make the decision to hire expert witnesses to testify on your behalf if he or she thinks it’s necessary. In certain cases, expert testimony can assist in swaying a jury in your favor by making it rather difficult to dismiss the probability of error, which can be enormously beneficial to your case.
