Padilla Law offers legal services in both Colorado and New Mexico, as well as offering Immigration & Naturalization services throughout the country. Padilla Law also works in conjunction with two law firms in Santa Fe, New Mexico: Padilla Law Firm, P.A. and Jo Snyder, Attorney at Law.
Our business and commercial legal services include general counsel and strategic planning, as well as document preparation and review for specific transactions. Businesses for which the firm has provided legal services include art galleries, medical equipment distributors, medical practitioners, and restaurants and bars.
We limit our civil litigation cases to the trial level in both State and Federal court, and do not generally practice in the appellate systems. Examples of cases that the firm has been involved in include breach of contract, civil rights claims, land disputes, landlord-tenant, natural resources leasing & permitting, personal injury, and quiet title to real property.
Although criminal defense is a small portion of our practice, we accept misdemeanor criminal cases, which are generally limited to disorderly conduct, DUI / DWAI, petty theft, and traffic offenses.
