Experienced Domestic Violence Attorneys in Alamogordo, New Mexico
Domestic violence in New Mexico is defined as one household member — which may include a family member, spouse, or another personal relationship — committing abusive actions against the other.
Abusive action may include:
- The threat of imminent body injury
- Severe emotional distress
- Telephone harassment or harassment
- Criminal trespassing
- Repeatedly driving past place of work or residence
- Criminal damage to property
- Harm or threatened harm to children
- Physical injuries
- Assault and battery
- Assault with the intent to commit a violent felony
Domestic violence charges carry severe punishments in New Mexico including emergency court orders of protection, with a misdemeanor resulting in up to six months in jail and fines up to $1,000 through a third-degree felony that can lead to three years in prison and fines up to $5,000
At the Law Office of Samuel I. Kane, P.A., our Alamogordo domestic violence attorneys will review the details of your arrest and the evidence — or lack of evidence — that will help build your defense.
That may include proving that the accusations of domestic violence were false, or that the person who is pressing charges is not a household member, which will change the designation of the charges significantly.
We may also pursue a self-defense strategy, or simply fight for a reasonable doubt defense to put these charges behind you, so you can move forward with your life without carrying the damaging title of a domestic abuser on your record.
If you have been charged with domestic violence in New Mexico, contact our skilled Alamogordo criminal defense attorneys today to tell your side of the story, so we can begin building your case before your first court appearance.

Throughout the country, in all 50 states, including New Mexico, the blood alcohol content, or BAC, limit is .08, which can be reached rather quickly with just a drink or two, depending on your body mass, what you have eaten, and how quickly the alcohol was ingested.

Traffic Tickets & Violations Attorneys in Alamogordo, New Mexico
Traffic tickets are common in New Mexico and can be handed out for everything from a parking ticket to speeding and are typically harmless when you only receive one – maybe even two.
The severity of your legal trouble, however, may begin to mount when you have several tickets for moving violations over the same period, which can lead to a significant number of points on your license that can end in a suspension – or worse.
Non-moving violations can be as simple as a parking ticket or driving without a registration, which generally does not require a traffic ticket and violations attorney.
Moving violations, on the other hand, can come with serious consequences — especially when they begin adding up — and may include not wearing a seatbelt, failing to obey traffic signs and signals, speeding, and even a DUI.
Before you agree to the terms of these tickets and pay the fines, contact our skilled traffic tickets and violations attorneys, so you are not admitting guilt and accepting the consequences without fully understanding how they will affect your driver’s license and your future.
