If you are on the lookout for the best attorney in Albuquerque then this post is for you as I have been through this process on two separate occasions, each time I have managed to find the best attorney possible. We have a real wealth of riches in the state of New Mexico when it comes to attorneys and there are so  many vastly talented and experienced attorneys available to us. David Serna attorney and good friend of mine is the finest criminal defense lawyer that you will find in the state, if you are charged with something then give him a call! If you aren’t looking for a criminal defense lawyer, here is how to go about getting the right attorney for you.

Attorney Type

The first thing that you ought to think about is what type of attorney it is that you are looking for. Lawyers may be able to turn their hand to different branches of the law but they will always specialize in a certain arm of the law. You can find attorneys who specialize in bankruptcy, criminal law, employment law, family law and all other manner of specialities, highlight your need before you start looking.

Checking the BAR Association

 The BAR association website will be able to give you a detailed breakdown of all the attorneys in your area who are qualified to practice law. You will find that most local bar association websites also have a great referral system to help you get the right person for the job.


Once you have a list of potential attorneys then you need to start a review process to see which ones will fit for you and for your case. To get started it makes sense to review the website of each law practice. The website should be full of information about the law firm, what they specialize in, successes which they have had, their payment structure and also testimonials from previous clients.

Making Appointments

Once you have reviewed each attorney’s website you need to make some appointments so that you can get some face time with your potential legal support. This final step is about you being able to sit and talk with the lawyer about the case and there will be some telling signs during these meetings which you need to be aware of and watch out for.

You need to first make sure that you feel comfortable speaking with the lawyer about your case, you should be made to feel confident and that you can discuss anything. You also need to feel like the lawyer has bought into your case, if they haven’t then this will be a cause for concern. Price wise you shouldn’t have too many worries because in Albuquerque there isn’t a huge sway in price from practice to practice, unless you are seeking out the very best.

Once you have met with each attorney on your list, it is time to pick the one which fits best with you.
