I have practiced law in Northern New Mexico for 18 years in the areas of real estate, mediation, business, trademark, civil litigation, estate planning and probate.

As someone who has helped clients navigate the judicial system over the years, I have come to greatly appreciate the art of mediation to resolve issues ranging from the technical to the emotional. Mediation allows participants to engage in meaningful dialog to find lasting solutions. The parties are in the driver’s seat at the mediation table, helping to craft mutually agreeable solutions. This process is often much less...

Effective legal solutions often require more than just understanding “the big picture”. To prevail in the difficult, life-changing cases your advocate must take advantage of all the subtle nuances to make the winning difference. For many years now I have studied and put into practice the persuasive arts and communication skills needed to succeed in the jury trial. I pay attention to the details and take every case seriously. Diligence, common sense, sound judgment and knowledge of the law are all very important qualifications for any attorney. If you want proactive representation that is cost-effective and personally...

Buying, selling, or renting property?

Real estate refers to land, as well as anything permanently attached to the land, such as buildings and other structures, and covers more than just the drafting of contracts for the purchase and sale of property. Both federal and state laws regulate real estate transactions. The Federal Fair Housing Act, for example, prohibits discrimination in real estate transactions on account of race, color, religion, sex, or national origin. Many states have enacted similar legislation that prohibits discrimination on the basis of certain characteristics.

Attorneys in this field may handle leasing issues, landlord-tenant disputes, eviction proceedings and homeowner association (HOA) problems. Other matters within this practice area include title disputes, mortgages, covenants, easements, and equitable servitudes. Many real estate issues can affect both commercial and individual renters and landlords. Real estate lawyers who represent commercial interests may also focus on land use, zoning, environmental law, or eminent domain issues.

Some states provide a certification for lawyers who have demonstrated experience and competency in the practice of real estate law. These attorneys must meet certain educational, experience, and examination requirements to receive the certification as a specialist.


Deed: The legal document that transfers the ownership of real property from one party to another.

Mortgage: A mortgage is a document signed by a borrower when a loan is made that gives the lender a right to take possession of the property if the borrower fails to repay the loan.
