I joined Butt Thornton & Baehr because it has always been known for being fair, firm, and competent. When I walk into a courtroom anywhere in New Mexico, it is great to have that reputation behind me.

Before joining the firm in 1998, I served  as Director of the Civil Litigation Division in the New Mexico Attorney General’s office for eight years. I was the lead counsel for the State of New Mexico in the Duran prison decree case until the decree was dismissed in 1999. I have been a member of the New Mexico Supreme Court Rules of Evidence and Code of Professional Conduct Committees. I was Assistant Dean at the University of Denver, College of Law from 1971 to 1972.

I have been active in my church and, in recent years, the Navy League of the United States.
