DUI and DWI is the main area of practice at Prieto Law. We represent clients who have been charged with DUI/DWI First Offense, Second Offense, Third+ Offense, Aggravated DWI/DUI, Underage DWI/DUI, Operating after Suspension, and DMV Matters.

Prieto Law takes a proactive approach to DUI/DWI representation. Our common practices include independent testing of breath or blood samples, obtaining toxicology reports, providing positive references to the prosecution, and any other means of negotiating the best possible resolution to the DUI/DWI charges.

Our clients are rarely convicted of all of the offenses that they are charged with.

How did your firm decide on the primary area of practice(s)?

Prieto Law's managing attorney, Joseph Prieto, Esq. began his legal career with the New Hampshire Public Defender, where he worked for over a decade. Once he finished his time at the public defender he opened his own practice with the hope of providing a premium legal service to those in need of criminal representation with greater resources and funding than the public defender. The practice maintains a more modest case load so that each client can be given proper representation and reach the best possible outcome. Prieto Law is a small yet well equipped firm with the ability to resolve cases quickly and creatively.

What experience or education distinguishes your lawyers from others?

Joseph Prieto, Esq. has tried hundreds of cases in all types of criminal matters. He has attended numerous seminars on DUI/DWI defense, drug crime defense, and defense of other crimes. He is familiar with many of the prosecutors especially in Hillsborough County and Rockingham County.
