Motor Vehicle Violations And License Suspension

The New Hampshire Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) can suspend your driver's license for certain serious motor vehicle offenses such as DUI/DWI. If you are over 21, you can also lose your license for accumulating 12 or more demerit points within one year. Drivers under 21 face suspension for even fewer points. Too many motor vehicle convictions can result in being certified as an habitual offender.

Our state's driving laws are strict, and the habitual offender penalties are harsh. If you are facing habitual offender status, you should have an attorney to represent you. At Green & Utter, P.A., we understand the effect that losing your driver's license can have on your life. Contesting the charges may be a better option than pleading guilty and paying the fine. Speak with us to learn how we may help you keep your license.

Protecting Your Driving Privileges

We represent clients who are charged with major motor vehicle violations such as:

  • Leaving the scene of an accident
  • Hit and run
  • Disobeying police
  • Reckless operation
  • Negligent driving
  • Driving after being declared an habitual offender
  • Drunk driving

If your license is suspended for too many demerit points or a DUI/DWI offense, we can represent you at an administrative DMV license hearing.

If you receive notice that the DMV is holding a hearing to determine whether to certify you as a habitual offender, you should contact an attorney immediately. We can represent you at this hearing and work to minimize the consequences. A conviction for driving after being certified an habitual offender is a felony with penalties that include a mandatory jail or prison sentence.
