Skilled Civil Lawyer for Guardianship, Real Estate Law, and Family Law Matters

For better or worse, most people will probably have to deal with a civil law case at some point in their lives. Whether adopting a child, negotiating a home sale, setting up a business, the outcomes of civil law cases can have far-reaching impacts on your life and the lives of your family.

Every civil case is unique, which is why I tailor my strategy and approach to your specific needs. I’ll take the time to understand your situation and work with you to develop a strategy to achieve your goals, so you can move your life forward with confidence.

Adult Guardianship & Adoption Services

Adopting a child or becoming someone’s legal guardian can feel like an uphill battle, but don’t let the mountains of paperwork discourage you from growing your family. I have the legal experience to make sure your adoption or guardianship goes smoothly.

Real Estate Law

Real estate always represents a major asset. I’ll make sure your investment is protected now and in the future, whether you are negotiated a purchase, sale, rental, permit, construction contract, or legal dispute.

Landlord-Tenant Disputes

Disputes between tenants and landlords can vary wildly from case to case — from maintenance and servicing issues to failure to pay rent through the eviction process. My experience representing both sides and the intricacies of New Mexico law gives you the best chance at a favorable outcome.


Business Formation

Building a business takes countless hours of hard work. And while I can’t build your business for you, I can help you make sure it has a solid legal foundation to grow on. Whether you need to form an LLC or a non-profit, or you want to put together business agreements, I’ll work diligently to set you up for success.
