"I consulted with and was told by 2 different lawyers that I had no case and that a DWI conviction was GUARANTEED . I then spoke with Mr. Lothstein and hired his services on the spot. His exceptional knowledge on DWI law and police procedure was evident immediately. In the end Mr. Lothstein got the DWI charges dropped and I pled guilty to a reckless driving. Best phone call I ever made."
I was stopped in a roadblock when coming home from a night out with my wife. I refused a breath test, and I was charged with DWI in the Laconia District Court. I have a CDL (commercial driver’s license), and depend on it for my livelihood, as a building contractor. I knew that if I lost my license because of the refusal of the breath test, or because of a DWI conviction, I would lose my CDL for a whole year, which would destroy my business, and would be devastating to my family.
I hired Ted Lothstein to defend me, and he did a great job. He got me out of the refusal suspension, and got me out of the DWI – this saved my CDL. Instead, I was only convicted of reckless operation, which is a traffic violation; I lost my regular driver’s license for 90 days, but did not lose my CDL. I would urge any person charged with DWI in NH, to speak with Ted Lothstein before they make the decision who to hire as their lawyer.
I was charged in the Keene District Court with driving under the influence, Speeding, and a lane violation – crossing the center line. I had refused the breath test. I hired Richard Guerriero. He was very “realistic” with me. No promises or false hope, just the truth, which I appreciated.
Richard was very prompt in getting me the police report, my hearing, and everything else needed to win my hearing for my ALS, forcing the State to offer a plea bargain. He got me a plea bargain where the DUI was dropped and I was convicted only of minor traffic offenses, speeding and the lane violation!
In March of 2014 my life was about to change forever. I had been charged with a Class A Felony for embezzlement. I was scared, devastated and did not know where to turn. I was highly recommended to Attorney Theodore Lothstein by another lawyer who did not have the ability to take on my case. I am so glad that I followed up on that lead and called him. His professionalism, compassion and understanding went well beyond what I could ever hope for. From the very first meeting, he fully explained each step of the process of the case and he answered all my many questions and concerns.
The stress of not knowing what your future holds is overwhelming, however, both Attorney Lothstein and his staff not only treated me with respect, but they followed up on my numerous requests and kept me and my family informed throughout the entire process. They managed to make a very stressful period in our lives more bearable.
I was facing 7-1/2 to 15 years in prison for my crime and Attorney Lothstein worked tirelessly on my defense and he managed to get my sentence reduced to a cap plea of 90 days in jail to be served on weekends. Without his expertise, impressive skills and his knowledge of case law, I would not be able to hold onto my job, take care of my family or have the ability to continue paying off my restitution. I would highly recommend Attorney Lothstein to anyone in need of a highly skilled professional defense attorney.
When our son was arrested for a serious crime, Richard Guerriero was recommended to us by two independent sources. At the initial consultation we knew immediately that he was the right person to defend our son. As well as being an experienced and skilled attorney, we found him to be straightforward, ethical, responsive, and caring. We were also pleased that he was upfront and fair about his fees.
Even though it was a first offense and our son had never been in trouble with the law before, the nature of the charges could have resulted in a very lengthy prison sentence. Attorney Guerriero worked diligently with the prosecutor to get the amount of time reduced to below the statutory minimum. While we were at times impatient with the process and delay in getting information, we soon realized that Attorney Guerriero was true to his word to take things one step at a time and keep us informed as soon as he could. He is conservative and cautious about expectations, never promising more than he can deliver. However, in our son’s case, he delivered more than we could have expected or hoped for.
My son was arrested for DUI in NH. He was underage and refused the breathalyzer and field sobriety tests. We are from out of state and knew he needed a lawyer but didn’t know who to turn to. We are grateful that we found Attorney Ted Lothstein. As soon as we contacted him, he responded promptly and explained the situation and all of my son’s options. He made the process easy for us with clear explanations, instructions and honest expectations. Being located out of state was a concern but we were easily able to conduct business through phone, text messages, email and my son was able to appear at his hearing via web cam so he didn’t miss any of his college classes. Most importantly, Attorney Lothstein did an excellent job preparing and presenting the case in court with the optimal result of a not guilty verdict! My son and I are greatly relieved that his arrest record will be annulled and are very appreciative of Attorney Lothstein’s hard work and expertise.
"As a prior client of Ted Lothstein, PLLC Concord, NH., that both Ted Lothstein and I believe we both regard as a very successful outcome to my case.
Before I hired Ted Lothstein I did research on several Attorneys representing criminal cases and I found Ted Lothstein as the best and most successful for representation and case outcome.
My arrest and how I was handled from the beginning certainly was not how I should have been dealt with. There were many aspects of this case surrounding facts, hospital records and a Trooper witness and Prosecutor that saw this case from Ted Lothstein's professional expertise.
The surrounding facts that my husband and myself were in an alcohol related incidence. Not a criminal act, however; self defense, further, That a whiteness falsely stated this incidence as being that I was the aggressor that persuaded my arrest as the officer saw this as facts.
I was frightened beyond belief about the thought of possibly going to prison for five to seven years and just the thoughts of this was overwhelming. In fact, I was unable to be in my home. I was in a detrimental situation of not only becoming homeless but loosing my car and my future.
Ted Lothstein's precision in law is outstanding! He dissects facts clearly and precisely states all the facts so there is no question about the case and the successful outcome. I highly recommend Ted Lothstein as your Attorney."
Note from Attorney Lothstein: This testimonial is exactly as sent by the client. The felony assault charges were brought against the client in January, 2017 in the Merrimack Superior Court. The NH State Police charged this client with Second Degree Assault-a Class B Felony, and after further investigation by Attorney Lothstein and discussions with the prosecutor, the State dismissed the charges against the client, resulting in no conviction.
