    "Not Guilty" in BWI case

    I was represented in a NH District Court by Mike Bowser on a BWI (Boating while intoxicated) case that turned my life upside down. I was in a rather bad Boating accident that left me banged up pretty nicely as well as loss of my driver’s license for 7+ months (6 months administrative loss, plus a bit for trial to finish).
    That fateful night, I took the field sobriety test (that I felt I would pass) and failed it, so I refused the breathalyzer leading to a mandatory 6 months without license (administrative loss of license), had I known this I would have blown but that’s history. Michael explained the potential sentence if guilty in NH as well as my obligation while residing in Mass.
    I met with Mike discussed my case and presented him pictures depicting my injuries from the accident. After our discussions, he felt we had a great case. Mike also mentioned he wanted to hire an expert witness (a Doctor) to substantiate my concussion (which yields similar symptoms as intoxication during field sobriety tests), I agreed and we discussed a very reasonable fee for his services in addition to a retainer for the Doctor.
    Pleading innocent, we had a Bench trial (just a judge making a decision). The prosecution presented their case (NH vs me) first. After the prosecuting attorney presented I was feeling pretty lousy about my chances as well as myself for being in this predicament. When Mike presented along with cross examination of the State's witnesses I quickly felt that we were not only going to win but felt certain it wasn't even going to be close. Mike proved to be very organized and prepared for very technical questioning that showed he has as much if not more knowledge about field sobriety testing than the police (in my case Coast Guard). At some points I felt bad for the prosecution as he totally turned their inferences of my condition that evening against them. The Doctor we presented did a fabulous job explaining my head injuries, and concluded that my concussion contributed to my inability to perform road side field sobriety testing. The Doctors discussions on concussion and its effects were expensive but worth every penny.
    In addition to being knowledgeable, Mike displayed a confidence without being arrogant, loud or demeaning to any of the States witnesses. I could tell the judge was very aware when Mike was able to disprove comments that were untrue or unfounded on cross examination.
    The judge returned a "Not Guilty" verdict 3 weeks later (he ruled in 4 days and the clerk’s office took 2 plus weeks to generate the paperwork) via mail. I understand Mike is known for his prowess in DWI cases but Mike has also proved to be fantastic at BWI cases as well. Thanks Mike again and I will be telling others how much you helped me, and certainly will recommend you to others.

    OUI

    I highly recommend Atty. Bowser for defense in any OUI case. He was instantly responsive and his vast knowledge of the laws were impressive. His years of experience in the system made a difficult situation less worrisome. The verdict was not guilty.

    It's your life on the line, so hire the best

    Michael Bowser is an extremely knowledgeable and professional DUI defense attorney. I was puled over and charged with OUI in Massachusetts 2 years ago. Finally after 2 years of tireless effort in the form of motions to suppress evidence and an eventual trial I was found Not Guilty of OUI. At trial, on cross examination, Michaels knowledge of proper testing procedures was clearly way above that of the arresting officer, and he appeared shamed on the witness stand. As a young student who had a lot on the line with this case, I decided to put my life in Michaels hands and he did not fail me, and I can now truly say I would not be where I am today without his help. When you are charged with OUI your life is in jeopardy weather you realize it or not, so it's always in your best interest to hire the best attorney you can. Michael Bowser is without a doubt that attorney.

    Excellent and reliable.

    I was pulled over last year and charged with a DUI. The breath test displayed a .08. After doing some research I opted for Attorney Bowser. My choice couldn't have been better. Attorney Bowser was thorough, understanding, and professional. His knowledge in DUI cases was superb in helping me make decisions regarding my case. His experience and performance lead to the best possible outcome in my case. Both the original DUI charge and Reckless Operation were dropped and in their stead was accepted a plea of Negligent Operation. If you are in need of a DUI attorney in MA or NH, Michael Bowser is absolutely the best choice. Thank you, Michael.

    Not Guilty on all charges

    Mr. Bowser was extremely helpful in defending me for OUI and negligent operation charges. After a few court appearances, jury trial was set and concluded. It only took them 15 minutes of deliberation to determine that i was not guilty. I would not be where I am today without the help of Mr. Bowser. I am very thankful he was able to help me in my situation and would highly recommend him to anyone who may be in a similar situation. Thank you very much.

    He is careless.

    I hired Mike B. because his web site looks great, and good experience and credentials. He may have all that but do not let that fool you. He is always late for court and one time I have someone else sent by Mike to represent me with out my knowledge, after be in the court room, for more then 25mins waiting for him with any communication. I could not reached him. It was terrible and I panic. His excuses were: he had another 2 cases at the same time. He could moved one of his cases for another day? But he did not or did I got an apology! no! .I paid him good money and I was found guild because he did not take the time to prepare for my case and showed up late,the prosecutor and the judge basically got very angry at him and that did not help me. He keeps appt. only if you paid him in advance and then good luck....He is extreme rude. He takes lots cases but does not dedicated his time to studying the cases . He is in court with tree people and tree different cases at the same time. How good can you be???? for people like me that have my faith in his hands. Not good., it is crazy. He likes the money. Do your self a favor, run... find a lawyer that respect you and fight for you. I have a terrible experience with him and do not wished that to no one. He does everything at the last minute. I got fried by his representation. It was a lesson that I'll never forget. I wish him the best and pray the LORD someday will be the judge for Mike Browser. He hurt me economically,mentally, and I went through hell because of him being careless.

    Fantastic Lawyer!

    Attorney Bowser is the best, personal, professional, trustworthy, and hardest working lawyer I have used. He and his staff went over and beyond what I expected in all aspects of my dui case. After many times in court, I only attended one and he represented me on the other occasions without me present, my case was dismissed by the courts. I am so thankful for his service and I was informed of status of my case at all times.

    Defense for Negligent Driving

    I amassed a number of violations from a zealous state trooper. Michael's defense centered on dismissing the Negligent driving claim and reducing the number of violations, so as not to impact my record (much) and ability to drive. Very responsive, knowledged, articulate and worked well at the hearing with the magistrate and trooper - successfully.
