Imagine yourself thrust into a world in which you never thought you’d be a part of. Having to hire an attorney to protect your freedom and your rights before you enter the Court system.
Now imagine that you are asking that attorney to help defend and protect you, but that attorney only knew one small area of what you are dealing with and not the full picture.
Would you feel safe or secure?
In the blink of an eye, your life just changed.
How did this happen? What should I have done differently? Why did I let this happen? Most people replay these three scenarios in their head over and over again after being arrested. It is normal to think how your life could have ended up differently by making a different choice. The problem is, you didn’t…and now we are here.
First, breathe, yes, it is that simple. Look, you can’t go back and change what happened, so what we have to do is make the best decisions possible from this point forward. The first decision you need to make is the conscience effort to take a few deep breathes and realize you don’t have to do this alone.
This is a scary process. If you have never been through this before then you may be even more scared of what you don’t know. Don’t try and “put on a brave face”. Be scared dammit! You are allowed to be scared, that is why you hire an attorney. It is our job to ease you through this and to be there with you every step of the way.
You Never Thought You Would be Accused of Domestic Violence
Being accused of domestic violence can leave one feeling betrayed and angry – particularly when these accusations are entirely false or are based upon an exaggerated description of events.
Domestic violence is a serious matter which should not be taken lightly. I believe that every person is entitled to their side of an argument and their right to a fair hearing of their case. After all, you are innocent until proven guilty. I have a serious commitment to defending the rights and futures of my clients throughout New Mexico.

A will isn’t usually a priority for newlyweds who don’t have children or a significant amount of assets yet. But wouldn’t your new spouse have an easier time distributing your assets to family members if you addressed your wishes in a valid last will?
What’s more, the medical directives that are included in our Newlywed Will Packet make an important wedding gift to your new spouse. It gives your spouse access to your medical documents, power of attorney rights and instructions on how you would want to be cared for if you become incapacitated.
STARTING A FAMILY…or JUST FINALLY GETTING AROUND TO IT?
We discovered that most people with young children realize the importance of a last will, but just haven’t “gotten around” to it yet. That’s a problem. A basic last will is the only way to legally state who will become your child’s guardian if you die.
Without a will, the court will decide who gets your children, plain and simple. Think about it: You may love your mother-in-law dearly, but will you rest in peace knowing she’s in charge of raising your kids? (That’s just one example.For the record, we hold no ill-will towards mother-in-laws.)
When you add a The Newlywed Will Packet to the mix, you’re adding the medical directives, powers of attorney and living will that your spouse and children need to take care of you in an emergency. You can also take the heartbreaking guesswork out of loved ones wondering how you would want to be cared for if you become incapacitated.
