Intelligent counsel, strong advocacy
How we work
We bring to our clients a team experienced in complex family and entertainment law issues involving negotiation, business valuation, complex custody, assisted reproduction and other case-driven complexities. Our work often involves teaming with financial advisors, CPAs, estate planners and other family and entertainment law-adjacent professionals and we are comfortable teaming with them.
When client-facing, our clients often comment that their initial consultation with us was very different than those they had with other lawyers. We fact-find, but we also try to understand the deeper concerns of our clients – not just how long they were married, their current financial situation or how badly they want that acting job, but also how the person in front of us feels about the issue facing him or her.
Once we begin the actual work of a case, we believe clients’ needs are best served by a competent, compassionate and organized legal team. Each team member remains informed on the status of the case so they can address client’s concerns on a timely basis or find necessary information as needed. Our clients have a liaison to assist them throughout their case. Legal assistants and paralegals work closely with clients to gather and organize needed documentation; law clerks or associate attorneys flesh out legal issues for research, and associate and senior lawyers lead the case strategy and prepare for litigation. Having a complete legal team allows for more brainstorming, creativity and problem-solving tailored to the client’s goals and best interests.
Our Key Beliefs and Priorities
“Good lawyers are creative problem solvers. There is often more than one solution. We work to find the one that best fits our clients’ needs.“
“Divorce and separation can be an extremely stressful and emotional time. Our decision-making ability is not at its best when we are stressed and emotional. Legal counsel can help you take a step back, see through the emotions, and make the best decisions possible.“
“New Mexico has a thriving music and arts scene finally being more widely recognized. We want to support those in the arts fully in their quest to share their art with the world.“
“Staying current on out-of-state cases involving complex issues means being better able to represent my clients here in New Mexico.“
“Our children truly are the future leaders of New Mexico. When we focus on their best interests, we improve the outlook for all New Mexicans in the future.“
