Albuquerque Criminal Lawyer

Aggressive, Effective Criminal Defense

Criminal acts are punished severely in New Mexico. This is because we are one of the most criminally active states. We have more burglaries per capita than anywhere else in the country. Recent studies reveal we are among the five most dangerous states with regard to rape and violent crimes. Likewise, we are consistently among the 10 most offending states in drug use.

As such, the penalties for even minor crimes tend to be harsh. There are mandatory prison sentences and steep fines. State prosecutors are not lenient. Without aggressive legal representation, defendants will endure the full force of the courts.

The Law Offices of Edward Chavez, Jr., can help. Principal attorney Ed Chavez has defended individuals in Albuquerque and throughout New Mexico against criminal charges for more than 30 years.
