New Hampshire Case Victories

With over 50 combined years of experience, New Hampshire criminal defense attorneys Ted Lothstein and Richard Guerriero have fought on behalf of thousands of clients in New Hampshire’s District Courts and Superior Courts, and have handled over 100 appeals in the New Hampshire Supreme Court.

These victories do not predict the outcome of your case. Like most lawyers who are not afraid to try a case, Ted Lothstein and Richard Guerriero have both seen plenty of juries vote to convict. From both victories and defeats, Ted Lothstein and Richard Guerriero have gained the experience and wisdom to guide a client through the process of exposing the weaknesses and strengths both of the prosecution’s case and of the available defenses, with the ultimate goal of achieving the best possible outcome - which may be a trial, or a negotiated settlement, a choice only the client can make.
