Laconia – 4th Circuit District Court

Is your case in the New Hampshire 4th Circuit District Division Laconia Court, also known as the Laconia District Court?

This Court is located in downtown Laconia, next-door to the Belknap County Superior Court where felony jury trials are held. The Laconia Court handles cases brought by the towns of:

  • Meredith
  • New Hampton
  • Gilford
  • Belmont
  • Alton
  • Gilmanton
  • Center Harbor
  • Barnstead

They also handle cases brought by:

  • the City of Laconia
  • the State Police
  • the Marine Patrol

Criminal and DWI defense attorney Ted Lothstein often appears in this Court, most often to handle a DWI or drug case. Because this Court lies in the heart of the Lakes Region, many DWI and BWI (Boating While Intoxicated) cases are prosecuted here.

A highly skilled professional, James Sawyer, prosecutes cases brought by the Laconia Police Department. Similarly, each town employs a police or attorney prosecutor that frequently appears in Laconia District Court and they all “know the lay of the land.” Be prepared.

Ted Lothstein has handled many cases prosecuted by Gilford or the State Police that arose out of motor vehicle stops following concerts at the Meadowbrook U.S. Cellular Pavilion. Do not drink and drive, or smoke weed and drive, at a Meadowbrook Concert. The road out of the parking lot might as well be a funnel into the Belknap County Jail.

Fortunately for the accused, former Governor Lynch appointed an excellent Judge to the Laconia District Court, Judge Carroll. This Judge exhibits the judgment and wisdom that come from many years of experience on both sides of the aisle, as a former County Attorney (chief prosecutor for the County), and as a criminal defense lawyer.

Attorney Lothstein represented a building contractor who faced a DWI charge in the Laconia District Court. This DWI was brought by the New Hampshire State Police after they stopped Client in a “roadblock” following a Meadowbrook Pavilion concert. A DWI conviction would mean a one year loss of his Commercial Driver’s License, which would be devastating to his business, his family and his livelihood. Attorney Lothstein secured a plea where Client served a 90 day suspension of his driver’s license, but did not get a DWI conviction, did not lose his CDL, and still has no criminal record. His testimonial appears here. Read More
