New Mexico Criminal Law Attorney

New Mexico Criminal Lawyer


Criminal Law

When you have been charged with a crime, it can be a very stressful situation, regardless of the offense of which you have been accused. At that time you need an experienced criminal defense lawyer to make sure that your rights are protected.

We aggressively represent you, the citizen accused, at every stage of the process. We help clients in all criminal matters, whether for so-called petty offenses, DWI/DUI, or first degree murder felonies. The New Mexico lawyers at Ragsdale Law Firm are also capable of handling an appeal of your conviction when your conviction has been improperly secured.

We handle Misdemeanor charges, which include many offenses, including most DWI offenses and domestic violence, and carry a maximum penalty of one year in jail. However, often the consequences of a conviction will stay with you for a lot longer. Because of that it is very important not to treat these charges as “petty”.
Our New Mexico Criminal Lawyer Defends All Types Crimes

Our criminal defense attorneys defend clients against charges related to drugs (possession and/ or distribution), assault and battery, sex crimes (criminal sexual contact and / or penetration), burglary, theft, embezzlement, conspiracy and all other felonies.

Whatever the crime is, we help you defend against the evidence that the state or federal government is using against you. We make sure that the government strictly adheres to the applicable rules of criminal procedure and that your constitutional protections are not violated. Often times, this means that we fight the prosecution's ability to use certain evidence because it was the result of an illegal search or seizure and thus in violation of the U.S or New Mexico Constitutions.

Whatever the charges may be, they are serious, and our lawyers will treat them as such. We understand the gravity of your case. Contact us today because time is a critical factor in helping you fight the criminal charges against you.
