CIVIL RIGHTS AND EMPLOYMENT LAW
The state and federal Constitutions, as well as state and federal law, provide every person certain fundamental rights. For example, the right to be free from excessive force when under arrest or state custody, the right to be free from unreasonable search and seizure, and the right to enjoy the equal protection of the law.
If you believe that your civil rights have been violated by a law enforcement officer, corrections institution, or other public agency, officer, or employee, contact us for a free consultation.
Several important state and federal laws protect most New Mexico workers from unlawful discrimination in the workplace. For example, it is unlawful under New Mexico law for an employer with four-or-more employees to discriminate against any person in the terms, privileges, and conditions of their employment on the basis of their sexual orientation, gender identity, sex, religion, national origin, or for being pregnant or having a medical condition related to pregnancy or childbirth. Sexual harassment, sadly, remains a common form of sex-based discrimination in the workplace.
In order to make a claim for unlawful employment discrimination in Court, you must typically first complete what can be a complicated administrative process with tight deadlines.
If you have been wrongfully discriminated against in the workplace, contact us today for a free consultation to discuss your rights and how we can best help you.

Beginning on January 1, 2020 it became possible to expunge criminal records in New Mexico. Expunged records do not appear on background check and are removed from public view. When a person with an expunged criminal record is asked if they have ever been arrested or convicted, they may answer NO. Exceptions can be made to District Attorneys and certain employers requiring security clearance to still access to expunged records.
A criminal record can sometimes be a ‘civil death sentence’. People with a criminal record can be denied access to housing, employment, immigration, and many other civil and professional necessities. Expunging your criminal record can help you move toward achieving your personal and professional goals.
