Albuquerque Domestic Violence Defense Lawyer


I have two goals in domestic violence cases: first, to work to get your charges dismissed, and second, to lessen your charges to keep a potential conviction off your criminal record. With over 25 years of experience defending clients charged with domestic violence or assault and battery, I know these cases well. I know how to work on my clients’ behalf to obtain an outcome that is in their best interests.

I also defend clients’ civil litigation in cases where the other party is seeking an injunction, such as a permanent or temporary restraining order. These injunctions can greatly limit your personal freedom, and can lead to criminal charges if you are found to be in violation. I will work on your behalf to protect your rights in these cases.

Contact me online or call 505.247.2417 to schedule an
appointment at my Albuquerque office. I will sit down with
you, discuss your charges and tell you exactly how I can help.

Protecting Your Rights in NM Domestic Violence Cases

A domestic violence conviction can cast a stain on your criminal record like few other charges. Everything, from your ability to see your children, to your right to carry a firearm, to your job, could be at risk. For people who work for the government or at a military base, a conviction could result in the loss of security clearance.
