Our Practice Areas
When someone violates a right guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution, the victim may be entitled to recover money from the person who violated their rights. This is called a “Constitutional Tort” and it is filed under Sections 1983 and 1988 of the United States Code. We are familiar with Section 1983 actions and can assist you in determining how to best protect your rights and compensate you for any violations.
A criminal record is public and easily discovered by employers, friends, colleagues, and neighbors. Some can even deny you important Constitutional rights like the right to vote, the right to own and carry a firearm, or certain 4th Amendment protections. We can help you annul/expunge your criminal record—restoring your lost rights and eliminating the need to divulge it on job applications or elsewhere.
Bankruptcy is an option for those in need of financial relief, but it can be a complex and confusing process. We’ll help you select the right solution for your personal needs and current financial situation, and if bankruptcy is appropriate for you, we will guide you through the process.
New Hampshire employees have the right to be free from workplace discrimination and unlawful terminations. If you have been subjected to a hostile work environment, harassed, discriminated against, or wrongfully terminated, you may be entitled to compensation.
Most homeowners are unaware of the rights they have to stop a foreclosure in its tracks. There are a variety of defenses you can raise and alternatives to foreclosure you can pursue. Don’t surrender to the banks just yet. Let us help you navigate the complex legal issues relating to foreclosure. We will ensure you use all tools at your disposal to protect you, your family, and your home.
New Hampshire and Federal laws protect those who are sexually harassed in the workplace. Employers must ensure a work environment free of harassment so if an employee or customer engages in sexual harassment, your employer has to end it.
Unfortunately, not all marriages last forever. Having a prenuptial agreement gives you control of your future. We can help you create a contract determining how you and your future spouse want to structure your marital agreements. Simply signing a prenuptial agreement doesn’t always protect you. We’ll guide you through the proper steps, minimizing the risk that a future court could disregard your agreement.
A will ensures your property goes to the people you care about, not to the state or distant relatives. It reduces the risk of family turmoil, disputes over assets, and the guilt and stress that often accompanies closing up an estate. To ensure you receive the treatment and care you would want if you can no longer speak for yourself, we also recommend having a durable power of attorney.
Our experienced and aggressive trial attorneys will get you the money you deserve.
We will help you navigate the complexities of personal injury claims and represent you in court if needed.
We represent clients facing misdemeanors, felonies, DUIs, domestic violence charges, and more.
When you are charged with a crime, your freedom, driver’s license, reputation, and Constitutional rights are at stake. We represent clients facing misdemeanors, felonies, DUIs, domestic violence, appeals, homicide, gun crimes, criminal threatening, and more.
