New Hampshire DWI Administrative License Lawyers
Administrative License Suspension – When you are charged with DUI/DWI, you are faced with a 6 month license suspension through the Department of Safety if you blow over .08, or if you refuse to blow – either way. You are entitled to a hearing at the Department of Safety, where the burden of proof is much lower than it is in court. You must request a hearing within 30 days or you lose the right to have a hearing on your DUI administrative suspension. According to the NH Supreme Court, in Lopez v. Director, N.H. DMV, 145 N.H. 222 (2000), it’s not even necessary that the DUI traffic stop was legal in order for you to be suspended administratively. Even with all these obstacles to fighting your administrative DWI suspension, we will always request a hearing on it. Our NH DWI lawyers do these hearings for you because, with all that’s at stake for you with a DUI charge, we want to take this opportunity to cross-examine the police officer and lock in his or her testimony. This improves our ability to win your DUI/DWI case at trial in court.
