Thanks for posting your question. I represent only folks charged with a crime so I would do not actually bring any charges. However, in the past I have represented citizens that have been charged for entering a closed road with various violations.

Driveway was posted however it was late and below freezing temperatures. Truck was about to die 100%. I'm on camera going up driveway and leaving. Never reached anyone for help.

The answer really depends on the facts. You should contact a defense lawyer and consult about your case. If you have been charged with a criminal offense that means there is probable cause to arrest according to at least a police department and justice of the peace.
A DV simple assault carries with it many unforeseen consequences. It may impact your firearms rights and result in travel restrictions to Canada. I would encourage you to consult with a criminal defense attorney in the area where you are charged.
I think you are seeking information about a petition to annul a criminal conviction, RSA 651:5. There is a checklist found at the State of NH website: https://www.courts.nh.gov/sites/g/files/ehbemt471/files/documents/2021-04/annulmentchecklist.pdf
I was sentenced to surrender for 30 days on weekends on 3/26/21. I had unforeseen circumstances to not surrender until 4/16/21 but continued to to do it every weekend until I finished with good behavior on 5/31/21. So I finished the sentence just 3 weeks late. Is that still bail jumping?
You will need to vacate the default and get put back on the trial list. The prosecutor will normally agree to this. Then we would proceed by getting discovery and analyzing your case. Sometimes older cases raise problems for the state as witnesses (police) may have retired and moved away. At a...Read more »

to control a combative/ assaultive individual who has or attempted to cause physical bodily harm to the guard/ officer or on another person. or is in the act of destruction of property where the security guard/officer is there to protect?
A security guard is authorized to use the same degree of force as anyone else. In other words being a security guard means that a person may use force that is reasonable to protect a person or property. Handcuffs do not require a license and are not considered deadly force. If a security person...Read more »
My upstairs neighbor is extremely verbally abusive and has physically threatened her kids and me. I want to make it clear to the property management company how bad it is and want to record her from the hallway. NH is a two party consent state but the law seems to be written around direct...

NH is a consent recording state, but if the person is yelling so loudly that it can be heard in a public place then I would agree they have no expectation of privacy. It seems like you could record from your own apartment or the hallway, do not amplify or use any device to enhance the sound.

If you and your spouse are facing criminal charges, a condition of bail can be no contact. It could also be imposed on many assault type cases involving domestic violence. In short a judge can in fact prevent contact between spouses, children or anyone.
In the state of NH, if I decide to publish embarrassing, but accurate, information about another person, does simply giving that person the opportunity to talk me out of publishing constitute blackmail, if talking itself is the one thing that other person doesn't want to do?
Like many things in life. The answer to this question depends what the information consists of. There are criminal charges for blackmail (extortion), revenge porn and others. It largely depends on the nature of the embarassing information and the intent you possess that may dissuade publication....Read more »
