Experience when you need it most. Since 1984 I have been representing and protecting accused persons from the enormous power of the government. My practice includes the representation of accused persons in federal and state courts on every type of criminal charge. I have also been privileged to serve the legal profession. I was president of the New Hampshire Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers (NHACDL) for six years. I continue to serve on the Board of Directors for NHACDL. I also served on the Board of Directors of the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers (NACDL) for six years. I continue to serve NACDL as the Chair or Co-Chair of several NACDL committees.

Excellent Lawyer
Mr. Iacopino worked diligently to help my case. He explained the process to me as I went through each step. He was prepared and explained to me the best way to get through the court issue. I highly recommend Mr. Iacopino.

When I had some issues with my towns government, Michael took care of my concerns. I found him to be extremely knowledgeable and very professional. He did a great job, and for a very far fee.
