Civil Rights Law, Criminal Defense, Law Office of Derek Garcia

On September 20, 2010, Derek Garcia became the first attorney in his family. The date did not mark the end of a long journey, but rather, just the beginning of a developing story. With an eye toward helping to make his home state of New Mexico a more just place for all, Derek began accepting his first civil rights cases, only two days after being sworn into the New Mexico bar. The occasion, however, did not come without struggle and sacrifice.

My goal is to help answer any questions people may have regarding the process of their legal issues, and help guide them to make the proceedings less daunting. Having been born and raised in New Mexico, and currently raising my two children here, I understand how important it is to uphold justice in this great state. Too many times we see in the news how people's rights are violated by authorities and others. Also, being the daughter of a law enforcement officer, I saw first hand how the police, and those who swore to protect us, actually cause us harm.
