Practice Area Descriptions

Personal Injury and Wrongful Death

Our personal injury and wrongful death practice is a statewide practice serving clients throughout New Mexico in both state and federal court.

Personal injury law includes a wide range of claims made on behalf of those seriously injured or killed due to the negligence of others. Personal injury would include such matters as auto accidents, medical malpractice, slip & fall injuries, premises liability claims, and nursing home neglect and abuse among others.

There are a broad set of personal injury law principles and procedures that apply to all personal injury and wrongful death claims.  However, there are important distinctions for different kinds of claims and different varieties of defendants.

It is important to understand these distinctions.  An experienced personal injury attorney can guide through the maze of issues that come up in personal injury and wrongful death claims.

Criminal and DWI Defense

Our criminal and DWI defense practice is limited to Albuquerque and the surrounding areas.  The great majority of our criminal and DWI practice is limited to Albuquerque and Rio Rancho.

Though criminal defense and DWI defense share many of the same constitutional and procedural foundations, there are many important distinctions between criminal defense defined broadly and DWI defense.  DWI defense invokes many principles, procedural rules, discovery rules, expert witness issues and the like that are unique to DWI.

It is important to understand these distinctions so it is important to have an experienced criminal and DWI defense attorney that understands and can take advantage of all the rules, laws and procedures that exist to protect criminal and DWI suspects.
