Types of NH Lawyers

NH defense attorneys handle cases where the defendant may be facing jail time. Having a NH
defense attorney may be necessary even if you aren't charged with a crime, and hiring one is
not considered an indication of guilt. A NH defense attorney can make sure your rights are
observed whether you are being charged or questioned in connection with a crime. NH criminal
attorneys defend clients facing a variety of charges, ranging from violation-level speeding tickets
to misdemeanors to felonies.
