Crafting Cost-Effective Solutions: Divorce - Criminal Defense - Business

At Carpenter & Associates, in Albuquerque, we focus on one goal — resolving your legal issues as quickly and as cost-effectively as possible. Our lead lawyer, Josh Carpenter, has resolved thousands of cases since founding Carpenter Law, P.C., in 2005, and has the experience and skills to help you meet your goals.

The issues that bring you to us depend of course on your specific situation. You may be facing divorce or a criminal charge. In other cases, it may be a business contract question or a debt collection matter that is on your mind.

Our Reputation For Client Service

We know that when you seek legal help, you need effective and timely solutions in a supportive environment. We begin by listening to you and discussing your concerns and goals. We then conduct a cost-benefit analysis, and provide honest and upfront advice regarding costs and your chances of success.

Two-thirds of our business comes from referrals by satisfied clients. Each time we accept a case, we stake our reputation on providing excellent legal and client services to clients in the Albuquerque area and beyond. We file cases as quickly as possible so that your case is resolved as soon as possible. In fact, we have accepted cases that other firms have failed to resolve in four or five years, and resolved them in six months or less.

What Legal Concerns Brought You To Us?

We focus our practice on a few main practice areas. They are:

Family law – Divorce can happen to anyone. Whether you have children or not, the property division and spousal support arrangements that come out of it have important implications for your financial future. For those with children, custody and child support decisions have far-reaching consequences as well.

We handle divorce issues with sensitivity and skill, protecting your rights while avoiding unnecessary conflict that only adds to your aggravation and your legal fees. Our firm also is adept at resolving other Albuquerque family law issues, from paternity and adoption to domestic violence.

Criminal defense – Criminal charges in New Mexico are always a matter of serious concern. If you have already been arrested, get an experienced defense lawyer from our firm on your side. If you haven't been charged but know you are under investigation, talk with us about how to protect your rights.

We provide tough, aggressive defense against a broad range of charges. From DUI and traffic offenses to allegations of violent crime, we are committed to defending your rights aggressively. This includes defense against such common charges as drug possession or trafficking and sex offenses, as well as fraud and other white-collar crimes.

Business law – From business formation to contact disputes, we are skilled at resolving issues that arise in a business setting. We will listen to your goals and craft a plan to action to pursue them in ways that make sense for your situation.

In going about this, we leverage legal knowledge from our other practice areas in creative ways. For example, if a small business owner is facing divorce, we are well positioned to handle valuation or business succession questions that affect the final property settlement.
We can also assist debt-collection issues for either businesses or individuals. In appropriate cases, our firm is prepared to do this work for a percentage of the money we collect.
