Kicking Ass On Your Behalf

New Mexico Criminal Defense Lawyer

Defending your rights, life, and future.

As a former social worker, I understand the trauma and upset a criminal charge creates. From the first phone call to the end of your case, I am available for questions, concerns, legal and emotional support. Nothing energizes me more than getting a case dismissed or winning a trial; I work aggressively and effectively to give you your life back.

Whether you are charged with a misdemeanor or felony offense, having an attorney’s support makes a huge difference. The legal system is difficult to understand and court proceedings are confusing. My job is to make sure everything is understood completely, empowering you to make the best decision for your case and your future.

Recent Cases

2022 Case Highlights:

In March, my client and I went to trial on an alleged sex assault. The plea offer was 15 years in prison! The jury returned a not guilty verdict after a lengthy deliberation.

After the Thanksgiving holiday, my client and I went to trial on a misdemeanor street racing case. After a short deliberation, the jury returned a not guilty verdict.

In December, I got a first-degree murder case dismissed! My client acted in self-defense when she shot and killed her stepfather. The case was prosecuted by the Texas Attorney General’s Office. After months of advocating, they dismissed the case and agreed that my client was protecting herself and others.

My clients are the best part of my career. We are a team, working together to get out of the system. Making mistakes is part of the human experience; my law practice is filled with compassion and understanding.
