A New Mexico court found you guilty beyond a reasonable doubt of a criminal offense, and now you face incarceration in one of the state's prisons. While you may find that the law curtails some of your rights due to your conviction, some of them do not go away simply because you are spending time behind bars.
In 2015, New Mexico began allowing attorneys from other states to practice in New Mexico's courts if they have practiced law in another state for at least five years. This means that a lawyer located in New Jersey can represent an individual on a lawsuit filed in New Mexico. There are many benefits of hiring a local attorney to help you on your New Mexico lawsuit.
