I am an experienced trial lawyer practicing in Northern New Hampshire, primarily serving Coos, Carrol and Grafton County. I have successfully argued more jury trials than any other defense lawyer in Coos County. I have been representing people in criminal cases for over twenty years.
I am recognized by my peers as possessing exceptional knowledge in the field of DWI. I have served on an editorial board for James Publishing, Inc. and written a chapter on breath testing in a book to be published by Massachusetts Continuing Legal Education, Inc. (MCLE) focusing on New Hampshire DWI defense. I have been a presenter and chair person of New Hampshire defense lawyer trainings sponsored by the New Hampshire Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers Association on Advanced DWI Defense.
I am certified according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) to administer the standardized field sobriety tests (horizontal gaze nystagmus, walk and turn, and one leg stand.) I am also certified to operate, maintain and repair the Intoxilyzer 5000. I have been certified to operate the Intoxilyzer 8000, the SD-5 and Intoximeter FST and taken advanced forensic blood classes. I am a member of the American Academy of Forensic Sciences. I am better trained than the police officer who arrested you. I have the experience to focus on the proper methods to attack the state's case against you and win.
I am available 24 hours a day for emergency consultations.
Harden Law Offices was established in June of 2003. I opened a second office in the summer of 2005 in Littleton to better serve the North Country. In the fall of 2011, I also acquired a Lebanon office. I am willing to meet with clients before or after normal business hours. I take pride in returning calls personally and in handling all of my cases from start to finish.
I have been focusing on criminal defense with a larger firm from southern New Hampshire and managing their office in Lancaster for over 7 years. Prior to my work with the southern firm, I worked in a North Country general practice firm focusing on criminal defense. It was during my time at the general practice firm that I began taking court appointed cases from local courts in northern New Hampshire.
I have been defending cases in northern New Hampshire for over 20years.

Since I started practicing law I've followed what Len was up to in the North Country. I've watched his trials, attended his seminars, and even studied (read: copied) his pleadings. He is a tireless defender that anyone would be lucky to have.
