Albuquerque Drug Crime Defense Lawyer


For your first drug offense or simple drug possession, certain diversion programs may make it possible to have drug charges dropped by the state of New Mexico, or dismissed in court.

Criminal penalties of drug charges greatly vary depending on the offense level and whether you have previous convictions. As an experienced drug crime defense lawyer in Albuquerque, I have seen convictions ranging from probation and drug treatment programs to mandatory jail time of a few months to decades in prison.

In many cases, a knowledgeable drug lawyer could have helped the accused avoid jail time and prevent convictions from appearing on record. That’s why it’s crucial to contact me today to begin building your defense.

Legal Defense of Drug Charges

Drug offenses are taken very seriously in New Mexico. Defendants can be charged and prosecuted under state and/or federal law for drug possession, drug trafficking and manufacturing. If you or a loved one was charged with a drug crime, it’s important to hire a drug crime lawyer to represent your side of the case.

I am Angela Arellanes, and I have more than 25 years of experience defending my clients against misdemeanor and felony drug crimes in Albuquerque, NM.

If you are accused of a drug-related offense, time is of the essence. The severity of the charges and the outcome of your case may depend upon how quickly you act. Even if you do not face incarceration, you may face consequences like probation, fines, mandatory drug tests and driver’s license suspension, all of which need the attention of a criminal defense lawyer.

As an experienced defense lawyer, I have experience assisting clients in lessening the impact of these consequences on your life. Contact me to schedule a consultation to discuss your case.
