Jeremy D. Eggleton
Jeremy’s practice centers on resolving real life conflicts with intense personal and financial stakes. He litigates easement and boundary disputes, will and trust challenges, business divorces and partnership breakdowns, civil and constitutional rights, including First Amendment in media law and homeowner association conflicts. It’s a wide range, but at the core of all these cases is often a broken down relationship in which options have run out and people want the courts to decide. “My goal is to give clients a complete and cost-effective solution by putting them in their best position to prevail at trial.”
Jeremy also appears regularly at the New Hampshire Supreme Court, briefing and arguing appeals from trial court and administrative decisions. He brings to appellate cases the tools necessary to prevail at that level: creative legal research and analysis, cohesive argument, and strong written and oral advocacy.
- In Mortgage Specialists v. Implode Explode Heavy Industries, Inc., 160 N.H. 227 (2010), Jeremy succeeded in obtaining a ruling by the New Hampshire Supreme Court which affirmed that bloggers qualified under constitutional protections for journalists and established a new legal test for when a website would be required to disclose the identity of an online anonymous commenter. The Wikipedia entry on the case noted that “This case set a precedent for protecting the legal rights of online media and reiterates the high legal hurdle required to restrict the free flow of information.”
