A Criminal Defense Law Firm is an Albuquerque-based law firm specializing in criminal and civil litigation. We are seeking a contract attorney with 2-5 years of related litigation experience to join our rapidly expanding, fast-paced practice. Position is part-time (15-20+ hours/week) and may move to full-time with firm benefits as case load develops. Due to the nature of our practice, availability for in-court appearances is a must.

Qualified candidates will have an active license with the New Mexico State Bar and solid experience in legal research, law and motion, taking and defending depositions, propounding and responding to written discovery, communicating with and preparing expert consultants/ witnesses, making court appearances, and trial preparation. Criminal experience is preferred; Spanish-speaking is a plus.
