Personalized Client Attention From Our Albuquerque Criminal Defense Lawyers

Each client deserves to receive compassion, loyalty, and dedication.  At Twohig Law Firm, we strive to provide this to each and every client.  We firmly believe that we are entrusted with the life and future of every client we represent.  Whether they were charged with a crime, accused of misconduct and put at risk of losing a professional license, had constitutional rights violated, or involved in an accident that caused injuries, we understand that we are assisting clients during some of the most difficult times of their lives.  Thus, we pride ourselves on being a law firm that focuses on our clients’ needs.

Being involved in any litigation can be scary and confusing.  It is our responsibility to guide clients through the unfamiliar, risky and often complex realm of litigation.  We take the time to help our clients understand the legal process and consider all potential strategies and ramifications.

Aggressive Representation

Our goal is to protect the client’s future.  Whether defending a criminal case, a professional license, constitutional rights, or an injured person’s right to compensation, each case involves evidence analysis, witness interviews, legal analysis, motion practice, trial preparation, and many other legal skills that we have spent years developing.  With our combined experience, skill and knowledge, we plan and implement strategies to minimize damages and maximize the benefits and opportunities available for our clients.

Criminal Defense

Our firm represents individuals accused of committing crimes and seeks to maintain or gain their freedom.  With over 40 years of experience and notable verdicts in a wide array of criminal defense cases, we advise our clients of their rights, outline their options and help them identify the most effective strategies to achieve their goals.  Our skilled Albuquerque criminal defense lawyers are great negotiators and aggressive trial attorneys with an impressive track record of courtroom victories, securing acquittals and dismissals for those wrongfully accused and those whose rights have been violated.

Professional Licensure Defense

It takes years of dedication and hard work for a professional to successfully obtain his or her license.  So when that license is threatened by an accusation of wrongdoing, or if past circumstances make obtaining a licensure difficult, our Albuquerque criminal defense lawyers aggressively fight to help a client maintain or obtain a license.

Civil Rights

People whose constitutional rights have been violated need aggressive representation and strong advocacy.  The Bill of Rights protects against government abuse of power. This includes law enforcement excesses.  Our firm fights tirelessly for the liberties and rights of our clients.

Personal Injuries

In most personal injury cases, injured victims are overwhelmed and frazzled by the need for medical treatment and compensation from the other party that caused the injuries.  Many, victims must deal with large insurance companies which attempt to settle a claim for as little as possible.  Our experienced team works to help clients receive the compensation which is rightfully due, and not just the bare minimum that insurance companies offer.
