Not in Santa Fe …

Recently, I informed clients and the El Paso County courts that I had accepted a job in Santa Fe with the Law Offices of the Public Defender for the State of New Mexico, and was scheduled to begin today, March 25, 2019. I received the Santa Fe offer on February 15, 2019.

In preparation, I withdrew from all my El Paso County appointed cases and removed myself from the appointments wheel for misdemeanor and felony cases.

In the subsequent weeks, I began to have second thoughts about relocating for a variety of reasons, not least of which was my attachment to the border region. Other reasons involved cost of living, distance from friends and family, and the stress of moving.

Approximately a week ago, I informed my new employer that I was withdrawing my acceptance. My apologies for any inconvenience to former clients and the criminal defense community of El Paso County, Texas.
