Amanda V. Garcia

I graduated from New Mexico State University in my hometown of Las Cruces.  After obtaining a master’s degree in London, I began my legal career with a clerkship at a civil defense firm in El Paso, Texas.  It was through this experience that I decided to attend the University of New Mexico School of Law.  While in law school, I was an editor on the New Mexico Law Review and taught civic education to area high school students through the Mashall-Brennan Constitutional Literacy Project.  At graduation I received clinical honors for my work at the Natural Resources and Environmental Law Clinic.  After graduation, I fulfilled a term as a judicial law clerk to Judge Katherine A. Wray at the New Mexico Court of Appeals.  My appellate clerkship gave me a broad perspective on the litigation process and prepared me for my role at Butt Thornton and Baehr.  The breadth of my work history reflects a commitment to the people in the state of New Mexico, where I intend to remain and develop a practice that serves those in these borderlands.
