About me

The key to defending your case is knowledge. The DWI man uses the knowledge he gained as a law enforcement officer making arrests and training others on how to conduct DWI arrests. His past combined with his commitment to studying the latest cutting edge science in DWI cases ensures you have the greatest chance of having your charges reduced, dismissed, or a not guilty verdict.

  • John Stephen Brandte

    I met Steve at UNH School of Law where he was a year ahead of me. He was always a serious student while also being very positive and friendly. I know that he worked under Attorney (now NH Superior Court Judge) Charles Temple in the Criminal Clinic and there is no better mentor. It was a pleasure having classes with him. I am not surprised that his clients find him dedicated, attentive and focused on providing the exceptional legal representation and getting them the best result possible.
