Juvenile Crime Lawyer in Albuquerque


Children charged with juvenile crimes often do not understand the impact of their actions, nor do they understand that there may be long-term repercussions as a result of their criminal record. Juvenile offenses must be handled by a juvenile criminal defense attorney working closely with the family to protect the child’s interests.

I am juvenile criminal attorney Angela Arellanes, and I have defended juveniles accused of crimes in Albuquerque, New Mexico for more than 25 years.

I provide juvenile criminal defense for all types of juvenile crimes, including:

Working closely with the minor and their parents, I develop juvenile criminal defense that first aims to keep the case—and your child—out of court.
