I have a passion for helping New Mexicans of all demographics.  I provide sliding scale services so that families of all income levels can have access to needed legal help.  I am proud to say that I have helped clients from various Central and South American countries who were turned away by other law firms due to their lack of sufficient income and an inability to communicate with them in Spanish.  My first real job, after college, where I was able to help those in need was as Peace Corps Volunteer in South America where I worked with farmers.

Guardianship + Conservatorship

What happens when a loved one becomes an adult or has already been an adult for many years but cannot be trusted to make those adult-type decisions regarding their own health, safety, and/or finances?  Maybe they need a guardian and/or conservator to help them make these important decisions. Maybe all they need is a power of attorney? 

Understanding the ins and outs of what is entailed in setting up a guardianship and/or conservatorship can be complicated.  Contact me to set up a consult and learn more about what is involved in setting up a guardianship and/or conservatorship for your loved one.


Family Law

Let’s face it having to deal with legal matters involving child custody, child support and/or divorce really sucks.  If it didn’t you wouldn’t be looking for a lawyer to pay to help you figure it all out. I provide up to one-hour consultations to help you get the information you need to better understand your options.  After our consultation, if further help is needed, we can discuss the possibility of what your needs are and how you and I can accomplish these goals together.
