Welcome to NHACDL
The New Hampshire Association Of Criminal Defense Lawyers (NHACDL) is a voluntary, professional association of the criminal defense bar in New Hampshire. NHACDL is the largest - and only – private, statewide organization devoted to criminal defense. In 2013, we celebrated 25 years of defending YOUR liberty (1988-2013)!
Collectively, our members practice in every courthouse in the state and handle every type of criminal case. NHACDL is an affiliate of the National Association Of Criminal Defense Lawyers.
Our ultimate mission is to ensure, safeguard and promote the effective assistance of counsel in criminal cases, to support the lawyers who do this work, and to preserve the fairness and integrity of the criminal justice system.
