Family Law

Family law involves some of the most intensive, exhausting, and overall difficult cases heard in courts of law. The many scenarios that require going to family law court are often incredibly sensitive and carry heavy ramifications if not handled delicately. Whether it’s the proper division of property or the custodial arrangements for children, family legal matters can be both emotional and complex. A New Mexico family court will carefully scrutinize the case from both sides, and that sometimes involves an in-depth look into your marital history. This means that the slightest misstep or unaddressed issue could lead to a weaker case or even loss in court.

There are many important details involved with family law, so it is highly recommended that you seek out a professional in the field to help review your case. We work to ensure that your case is not only strengthened, but you also receive the proper representation in the court. Our dedication and professionalism ensures that your case is thoroughly examined and your best options explained. As difficult as family law cases can be, having a legal professional with experience in this area of New Mexico law can help to alleviate the stress and unpredictability of your divorce or other legal matter.

With this in mind, retaining the services of an experienced business attorney can help you avoid having to bring your disputes before a civil court judge. Whether your attorney handles preventative measures, like reviewing contracts, drafting non-compete agreements, or enforcing leases, or you have a conflict resulting from an accidental or intentional breach of contract, you will want a business lawyer who’s familiar with the state and federal laws that affect your business.

Cannabis Law

The legality of marijuana has changed over the years. Consenting adults are now able to purchase the product for recreational use in nine states, while medical marijuana is available for purchase with a prescription in over 30 states. Cannabis is rapidly growing as a business. I a few states, it even overtakes liquor in terms of sales. One would think that law firms would jump at the chance to work with clientele in such a quickly growing industry, but this is not the case since marijuana is still considered illegal at a federal level. In Albuquerque, medical marijuana is legal, while recreational medical marijuana has been decriminalized. However, that does not mean that you will not need representation in an Albuquerque court if you’re charged with a marijuana crime.

Cannabis law is actually a mixture of different legal fields, such as administrative law, business law, criminal law, intellectual property law, and tax law. Because of the nebulous state of cannabis’s legality at the federal level, there are sometimes issues with taxes and criminal liability. We work to mitigate these concerns and will clarify your rights in terms of cannabis law.

Personal Injury

No one ever expects to be injured in an accident, but what you should expect is the financial repercussions that come afterword. Whether it is due to a car accident, slip and fall, or workplace incident, an accident can occur at anytime. And to make matters worse, while you’re trying to recover, if you do not take the time to properly address your financial and legal needs, things can become very complicated. If an accident injury is severe enough, the costs can be astronomical, which is why you need a personal injury lawyer who can look out for your interests while you recover.

Depending on the severity of the accident, you may be confined to a bed and prevented to move in order to recover. This means that you are not only paying expensive medical bills, but you may also be losing important sources of income if you cannot work. You will need to seek out reparations for these losses in order to avoid having your recovery create excessive costs. If you are the victim of an accident with injuries, talk to us about defending your legal rights and learn about your possible recovery strategies.

Drone Law

Drone regulations are often confusing and consist of a series of policy statements that cover both privacy issues and potential liabilities. Each state has its own laws regarding the tools and their use, with multiple agencies adding in their own limitations depending on the area where the drone is used. If you do not run into trouble handling drone law on a federal level, then you may instead need to face the laws on a private one. Avoid hefty legal fees and ensure that you protect your right to use your drones for both recreational and business purposes by hiring a drone law attorney.

We work to ensure that you have the proper documentation required to use the tools without issue. Our services also include guidance on how best to follow federal, and state, drone law in order to avoid further legal issues. In order to maximize profits from the use of drones, it is recommended that you have a legal representative look over your documentation and outline any restrictions or laws of note.
