Experienced Santa Fe Lawyers Provide Comprehensive Criminal Defense

Diligent New Mexico firm challenges evidence brought by prosecutors

A criminal charge is intimidating, but it does not change your fundamental rights. No matter what the allegation entails, an experienced attorney can enforce these rights and give you the best chance for a positive outcome. At Clark, Jones & Pennington, LLC in Santa Fe, our firm stands with accused New Mexico clients and challenges authorities who try to use false or misleading evidence against you. With over 50 years of combined experience, our lawyers can tackle any type of felony or misdemeanor count that you are facing.

Knowledgeable attorneys handle felony and misdemeanor cases

We offer individuals in the Santa Fe and Albuquerque areas exceptional advocacy and defense for all types of criminal proceedings, including those alleging:

  • Assault and battery — If you have been arrested after a physical altercation, we can present any appropriate defenses on your behalf, including self-defense.
  • Burglary and theft — Depending on the amount involved in the theft and other circumstances, these charges can lead to significant incarceration. Our firm works to combat overcharging and defend against property-related accusations.
  • White collar crime — We have the knowledge and background to analyze accusations of fraud, embezzlement or other white collar crimes and synthesize complex matters into a clear, authoritative argument.
  • Homicide — Cases where someone is accused of ending another’s life demand exceptional representation from an experienced criminal litigator. We are accustomed to handling high-profile matters and delivering successful results.

Even when the odds seem difficult, we investigate every aspect of the case to give you the best chance of obtaining an acquittal, dismissal or favorable plea agreement.

Incisive litigators provide strong counsel to clients charged with sex crimes

More than other types of charges, sex crime prosecutions often turn on subtle questions relating to consent or intent. If you have been accused of sexual assault, possession of illegal materials or another charge relating to alleged sexual misconduct, it is essential to find an experienced criminal defender. We understand how even an unfounded allegation can destroy your representation, so we take immediate action to confront questionable evidence and witnesses. Our lawyers handle each case in a sensitive, professional manner and pursue a result that clears your name.
