New Hampshire Criminal Defense

Upton & Hatfield represents individuals facing all levels of criminal charges in New Hampshire, from felonies to misdemeanors to driving offenses and other violations. We know that being on the other side of any police department or prosecuting agency is stressful and overwhelming, and we believe that it is our job is to assist during a difficult time.

The most important thing when facing criminal charges is having a lawyer you trust—someone who will take the time to explain the system, help you understand your options, and fight tirelessly on your behalf.

Criminal defense attorney Susan Lowry has the experience and passion necessary to be your advocate. She will thoroughly investigate the facts of your case and prepare your best defense strategy, including hiring experts if needed.

Some of the criminal cases she handles:

  • Assault and other abuse offenses
  • Domestic violence
  • Drug-related offenses
  • DUI offenses
  • Alcohol-related offenses
  • Motor vehicle offenses
  • Theft and burglary-related offenses
  • Fraud-related offenses
  • Criminal threatening and harassment
  • Resisting arrest

One important aspect of criminal representation is the consideration of consequences outside of any conviction. Many charges carry the potential for a loss of driver’s license, loss of professional license, loss of federal financial aid for students, the inability to possess firearms, housing issues, and much more. Attorney Lowry will work to ensure you are aware of these potential consequences and work to avoid them, if possible.

Attorney Lowry also has experience in dealing with alternative avenues to criminal convictions. These include diversion programs, community wellness courts, and drug courts within the different New Hampshire counties.

She is also available to help individuals with post-conviction issues, such as seeking to annul criminal convictions.
