NARCOTICS: NM Stat § 30-31-20
Narcotics charges are among the most serious ones a person can face, and sentences are often measured in decades. However, every case contains flaws in the investigation, arrest, evidence and prosecution. Hire your attorney early to give time for a full investigation to prepare a robust defense.
MURDER/ MANSLAUGHTER: NM Stat § 30-2-1
The state typically puts all its resources into a first-rate prosecution on this serious crime. The only way to properly defend yourself is with an aggressive, well- designed defense prepared by your legal advocate. Remember: Charges are not the same as a guilty verdict.
ASSAULT & BATTERY: NM Stat § 30-3-1
Assault is an intentional threat, words, or actions causing another to fear impending violence. Battery is to touch another without permission. If you have been charged
with these crimes, it is essential you retain a lawyer who uses a seasoned investigator to help gather all the facts and evidence to win your case.
DOMESTIC VIOLENCE: NM Stat § 30-5-15
Domestic violence is a serious crime which can affect your rights, professional standing, immigration status, employment opportunities, military career, and custody–regardless of the facts. Often, a thorough investigation is not performed and the wrong party gets charged. In addition, domestic restraining orders are often issued without any finding of threat, violence or harm to settle these matters out of court. There is a high price to pay when agreeing to a restraining order. Don’t let a shabby investigation sabotage your future!
SEX CRIMES:NM Stat § 30-9
Sex crimes charges can be among the most embarrassing and difficult to navigate. Such charges can cause devastating harm to the reputations of often innocent defendants. Don’t wait for the state to dismiss the charges, as this cannot happen without an experienced attorney to work your case, identify holes in the prosecution, and demand justice.
CHILD CRIMES: If you are accused of committing a sex crime involving a child, don’t panic or lose hope. Being accused does not mean you will be found guilty. A seasoned attorney and a well- organized defense will help protect your rights and ensure the best possible outcome.
