Ronald J. Caron

I practice in the greatest law firm in the State of New Hampshire.

I regard the practice of law as a vocation. It is demanding of my life. It makes no excuses for it. It tolerates no compromise and commands a commitment to others. It cannot be accommodated by an eight-hour work day or a forty-hour work week. It does not suffer half-measures. I have demanded of myself nothing less in over 40 years as a practicing lawyer. I love this job!
Since 1982, I have represented individuals and businesses as their lawyer. I remind myself of that privilege every day.  The trust placed in me comes with an immense responsibility to provide representation with vigor and with dedication.  That is what I do.
In all of those years, my focus has been trial work and other forms of litigation, including:

  • Criminal defense (State and Federal) for people and businesses, including “White Collar”, felony, misdemeanor, motor vehicle, and regulatory matters;
  • Prosecution and defense of civil litigation of many types and in many industries;
  • State and Federal administrative proceedings;
  • Divorce and family law matters;
  • Trust and probate litigation.

As critical to success in the courtroom is being effective in navigating disputes away from trial as circumstances demand – by avoiding a complaint or indictment or by successfully negotiating a resolution short of trial. I provide guidance in the mediation and settlement of disputes. Where a dispute cannot be reasonably resolved, I dedicate myself to being prepared for trial. My trial experience is broad and successful. I have tried jury and non-jury criminal and civil cases and administrative proceedings throughout New Hampshire and outside of our State.
I represent individuals from all walks of life and a great variety of businesses. My personal clients range from professionals, to trades people, to students. Business and corporate clients have included those from large publicly-traded companies to small family businesses. I have represented nationally-known pharmaceutical and manufacturing companies in litigation and criminal matters, automobile dealers, construction companies, medical and other professional practices, real estate sales and development entities, to name a few.  

I represent people. I represent individuals like me and like you.  
In every matter for which I am retained, I do my very best to provide uncompromised expertise and professionalism. I love my work and appreciate the trust my clients place in me. 
On a personal note – I am a father, a grandfather and a husband. I love hockey. I played for years until very recently. I coached my son and daughter in Manchester Regional Youth Hockey Association teams for more than 10 years, and my daughter in basketball throughout elementary and junior high school. My wife and I ski and play golf (I cannot win a round against her!). My motorcycles are my diversion, and we try to get out for a ride as often as we can. And now – We have a granddaughter and a grandson. Call me “Pop”. I intend to spoil them, bring them on adventures and enjoy them for as long as I can get away with it.

I look forward to the chance to work with you.
