"I hired Nick Howie to represent me for a serious OUI-related case where charges could have resulted in mandatory jail time and loss of license for a significant period of time. Over an 18-month period, Mr. Howie executed a brilliant strategy that at the end of the day resulted in a small fine and no jail time. Throughout this process, Mr. Howie leveraged all of the players in the process, communicated regularly with me, and evolved the strategy as necessary. Despite facing jail time, I never felt helpless because I had the utmost confidence in Mr. Howie and our strategy at any given time. His instincts as to when to "play nice" or when to "push back" were spot on. His relationships with the District Attorneys office, Probation, and the RMV proved invaluable. I owe my freedom today to Mr. Howie, and give him my highest recommendation".

I was faced with my first DUI charge and was scared, did not know where to turn. I met with several Attorneys and after meeting with Attorney Howie I knew he was my guy. He has a kindred heart and a genuine approach-putting the client first. Even after refusing a breathalyzer test, failing the sobriety tests and having a prior record, Attorney Howie went over and beyond for me while keeping full consideration of my priorities and finances. Attorney Howie is affordable, fierce, and gets the job done -which in my situation did not look promising. I took his advice proceeding to trial, and am blessed to have had him represent me reaching a clean NOT GUILTY verdict.

I hired Attorney Nicholas Howie last year for an alcohol related issue for my underage son. Attorney Howie was very professional and courteous to us. He worked with the prosecutor to get the charges dismissed. We were very happy with the outcome! I would highly recommend Attorney Nicholas Howie for any alcohol related or criminal matter.

Attorney Nicholas Howie recently represented me in a New Hampshire court. I am a Massachusetts resident. Nick Howie has an expert knowledge of the laws of BOTH states, My case was a success due to his very competent defense, I would most definitely endorse this lawyer .

Nicholas Howie is recommended to anybody in the U.S. not just in New Hampshire, who is in need of legal help in the areas he practices because this attorney devotes his time and maximizes his effort to make sure his clients are well represented. He is very honest and goes beyond what the average laywer would do for his clients. He is ethical and an amazing person who knows what he does. Even though I had not met with Mr. Howie because I used the NH bar site to choose him, I was surprised at the good work and the constant and consistent manner he communicated with me regarding the case I had contacted him to work on. I was more than happy when everything was set and done. Try him for your legal issues and you will not regret it. I was very happy with him at the end of the case and so did my family.

I was actually recommended here by a family member. If you ever have any trouble in Salem, NH. This is definitely the guy you want to go to. He actually seems to care about his cases. He is also very honest with you and gives you possible outcomes about what is going to happen. I actually had my case go all the way to trial but he did a great job all the way to the end and it paid off very well! Definitely a hard working guy!

I recently worked with Nick and can undoubtedly say he is someone who is honest, knowledgeable, and cares for his clients... I also fired Nick. When I was arrested I was arrogant and boastful that I would walk away scott free, but this most certainly was not the case. When Nick tried to explain this to me I was resentful and blamed a lack of effort on Nicks part for the prosecutions unwillingness to budge. Against Nicks word I decided to proceed with the case and turned to new council. Nick had warned me that if I proceeded with the case, things would likely get worse for me- which they did. Exactly everything Nick had told me would happen, did. Looking back on this humbling experience I see how much of an immature, egotistical young hot shot I really thought I was. Nick is someone who conducts himself with integrity, virtue, and truly cared about not only the outcome of my case, but my future. If your looking for an honest opinion (not just what you want to hear) Nicholas Howie is someone to confide in... I can tell you from experience .

I hired Nick for my DUI, I was very impressed with how he handled himself in court, you could tell he does this alot. In the end the jury found me Not Guilty! Couldn't be happier and would recommend him to anyone that is in the situation.
