From Carlos:

I am a consultant with the Mexican Consulate and help them with any family law questions they may have so they can better serve their Mexican citizens living here in New Mexico. https://consulmex.sre.gob.mx/albuquerque/ 

I also educate my clients regarding all their options when contemplating hiring an attorney longterm.

Sometimes needing to hire an attorney, to take on a case, from start to finish is not what a client needs. I often recommend that a limited entry by an attorney may be all that is needed to adequately address a legal issue.

I currently focus primarily in the area of Adult Guardianships and Conservatorships. I have a contract with the Office of Guardianship to help serve the underserved and low-income New Mexican’s who desperately need a guardianship for their loved ones. 


I also do private cases for those who do not qualify for services through the Office of Guardianship.

I also have a contract with Advocacy Inc. and serve as a guardian ad litem and youth attorney for children and young adults in the custody of the Children, Youth and Families Department. 


I was born and raised in Albuquerque, New Mexico. My undergraduate degree is in History from Saint Mary’s College, https://www.stmarys-ca.edu/, and I also have a Masters of Science Natural Resources from the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point 


I graduated from the University of New Mexico School of Law in 2014, http://lawschool.unm.edu/, and shortly thereafter worked for almost three years at the New Mexico Child Support Division as an attorney 

https://www.hsd.state.nm.us/LookingForAssistance/Child_Support.aspx. In 2017 

I was accepted into the Entrepreneurs in Community Lawyering (ECL) program at the State Bar of New Mexico where I received training and mentorship regarding best practices of small scale law firm management. I graduated from the ECL program in 2019 and am proud to be counted as one of its first alumni. For more information regarding the ECL program, please see page 9 of the February 17, 2016 issue of the Bar Bulletin at the following link
