Main Areas Of Practice

Family law – Divorce can happen to anyone. Whether you have children or not, the property division and spousal support arrangements that come out of it have important implications for your financial future. For those with children, custody and child support decisions have far-reaching consequences as well.

Our divorce attorneys handle these issues with sensitivity and skill, protecting your rights while avoiding unnecessary conflict that only adds to your aggravation and your legal fees. Our firm also is adept at resolving other Albuquerque family law issues, from paternity and adoption to domestic violence.

Criminal defense – Criminal charges in New Mexico are always a matter of serious concern. If you have already been arrested, get an experienced Albuquerque criminal defense lawyer from our firm on your side. If you haven’t been charged but know you are under investigation, talk with us about how to protect your rights.

We provide tough, aggressive defense against a broad range of charges. From DUI and traffic offenses to allegations of violent crime, we are committed to defending your rights aggressively. This includes defense against such common charges as drug possession or trafficking and sex offenses, as well as fraud and other white-collar crimes.

Business law – From business formation to contact disputes, our Albuquerque lawyers are skilled at resolving issues that arise in a business setting. We will listen to your goals and craft a plan to action to pursue them in ways that make sense for your situation.

In going about this, we leverage legal knowledge from our other practice areas in creative ways. For example, if a small business owner is facing divorce, we are well positioned to handle valuation or business succession questions that affect the final property settlement.
We can also assist debt-collection issues for either businesses or individuals. In appropriate cases, our firm is prepared to do this work for a percentage of the money we collect.
