I got referred to Len, by a couple of top attorneys from southern New Hampshire. I reside near the Boston area and got pulled over in October 2016 for a headlight out in Berlin NH. I was subsequently arrested for possession of and transporting in a motor vehicle a controlled substance, Marijuana. These charges were a class B misdemeanor with the transportation charge carrying a mandatory loss of drivers license for 60 days. Soon after my arrest I had an initial consultation with Attorney Harden. He informed me that at my arraignment, the DA would offered to drop the transportation charge if I was willing to plead guilty to the possession charge. This would have been an acceptable, free advice for some but I was unable to plea guilty to a criminal charge due to many circumstances in my life. We spoke that first time for about half hour all on his dime, about other options. It was obvious to me that I was in good hands and agreed to hire him. After negotiations with the DA, Len was able to get all criminal charges dropped and reduced to a violation for knowingly transporting a controlled substance, marijuana in a motor vehicle. An amazing result considering the police had me on body camera, I willfully handed over the pot and there was no denying the possession. From my perspective, to walk away without any guilty plea of possession or transportation of a controlled substance or paraphernalia was only possible from Len's incredible interpretation of the marijuana laws in New Hampshire. Furthermore, in 12 months I can petition the court to have the case and violation completely annulled. I would highly recommend his services if you have criminal issues in northern NH. In closing, I owe Attorney Harden the most sincere thanks for understanding and addressing my needs in this case. I can only hope to cross paths again under much different circumstance, lol.

On April 29, 2016, I was arrested for a first offense DWI. I had only ever had a speeding ticket in the 37 years of driving my own vehicles and commercial trucks. I didn't know what to do and was very upset that I had been dumb enough to get behind the wheel.
One of my best friends recommended Len and it was the best thing I could have ever done. Len has a very likeable personality which made a stressful situation a lot easier to deal with. Len didn't have much to work with because my big mouth at my time of the arrest didn't make it easy for him. When it came to court day Len let the arresting cop "have it", Len quickly picked up on false statements of the trooper and found ways to defend me in ways that made my jaw drop.
I know that if I didn't have Len on my side it would have been a much worse outcome.
Thank you Len,

Len took time to discuss my case, so I was fully aware of everything that was important to me.
I received updates and felt assured that I was in good hands.

Len provided excellent advice in all aspects of my case. He walked me through the entire criminal prosecution process. I never anticipated that I would be arrested for anything but when I was I was glad to have someone like Len help me through it.

Len was able to help me out when I was in a dire spot, had few options when I knew that something was fishy with the states case. Len worked hard to get all the facts and ended up getting my charge dropped to a violation level offense. If you ever need a DUI lawyer Len is your man.

I was pulled over in a small town in Northern New Hampshire for suspicion of driving under the influence. I started researching attorneys that specialized in this particular law and everyone I spoke with recommended Leonard Harden as the best DUI attorney in the state. I then contacted an attorney’s office in Southern New Hampshire and they also recommended Leonard Harden so I felt very confident he was the right attorney for me. Leonard and his assistant Mandy where extremely helpful in settling my nerves and gave me an accurate interpretation of what to expect. I wholeheartedly believe based on Leonard’s experience and expertise had I gone with a different attorney I would not have had such a favorable outcome.

This year I unexpectedly became involved in a complicated criminal matter. The state initially appointed me counsel and my need for an experienced attorney was obvious. After contacting numerous firms, I selected Harden Law Office of Lancaster NH. I was surprised by Len's professionalism and his request of a personal meeting solidified my desire to work with him. During this meeting he listened to my story, understood my situation, and outlined a clear plan to minimize any negative impact to my future. The months leading to trial challenged me physically, mentally and financially but never deterred Len and his ability to remain focused and committed to his plan. Without hesitation, I would recommend Len Harden and his team to represent me again if needed.

Len is by far the most experienced, knowledgeable and expertly skilled attorney in the entire state! He was recommended to me by an attorney for the U.S. Department of Defense and he definitely did not disappoint. Not only did I win my ALS hearing with the state (a feat that is virtually unheard of), but I won my DUI court case as well - and I owe it all to Len! (And my parents, for loaning me the legal fees).
Although the police departments might have you mistakenly believe that hiring an attorney is nothing but a waste of time and money, I assure you that couldn't be further from the truth - especially if you decide to have Len Harden on your side! Not only is he professional, competent and quick-witted (his cross examining tactics are epic, let me tell you) but he is actually quite likeable as well! (I felt completely comfortable telling him all the juicy details of my case and never once did he make me feel like an innocuous, vapid fool - much unlike the state troopers who pulled me over).
Whenever I had a question, concern (or was in need of some reassurance) he was readily available and never sounded annoyed by my incessant pestering, when in all reality he probably had every right to be.
So to anyone out there who has been arrested and is having the unfortunate experience of having to deal with this horrific hellish nightmare otherwise known as a DUI, please do yourself a favor and pass on the television attorneys and hire a real winner to represent you, Mr. Leonard D. Harden. While he may not be much of a hugger, he'll definitely get the job done and at the very least cause the arresting officers to quiver.

When I was charged with DUI I was frightened and ashamed. A colleague referred me to Attorney Len Harden and I am very grateful for the recommendation. At all times Len was responsive, highly knowledgeable and easy to work with. He ensured I fully understood the legal proceedings as they progressed and was quick to answer all my questions. I was impressed by his expertise and appreciated the straightforward way in which he handled my case. I believe Len's representation achieved the best possible outcome for me in a difficult situation.

I was arrested for my second dwi and first we went to concord als hearing to fight the charge of refusing to take a blood test and it is very hard to win in concord but he won my case! I ended up getting my license back! Then we had a court date for the dwi and ended up that the police dept decided to dismiss the charges due to a weak case! I ended up not losing my license ,which could of been 2 years for refusing to take the blood test also 3 years for 2nd dwi also and all of the rest of headaches that go along with it. I am very pleased with leonard harden ability to fight my case.Thank you very much for letting me to continue to have my freedom,when you lose your license you loss your freedom. I highly recommend if you dont want to be charged with a dwi then you need to hire leonard!
