Arrested for Driving While Intoxicated in Salem New Hampshire

Have you been arrested for driving while intoxicated, reckless driving, driving while license suspended, conduct after an accident or another serious motor vehicle offense in New Hampshire? If you have been, you are facing a fast arraignment date. This is particularly so if you have been told to appear in District Court in Salem, Derry, Plaistow, Brentwood, Candia, Seabrook or Manchester. If you have been arrested for DWI, your arraignment date is supposed to occur within two weeks of your arrest, but they are frequently scheduled even sooner. This is because of a special DWI arraignment statute: See RSA 265-A:3-a.  "Arraignment". It is important to contact a DWI defense lawyer as soon as possible after your arrest.
