Client Reviews
"Thanks to Mr. Valdez's office for handling my case while I was incapacitated. Although I am still recovering even now, it is a great relief to have this kind of support and assistance during this time. Furthermore, I cannot thank them enough for the positive outcome. Special thanks to Shaniah for making the process stress-free for my wife and self." Stephen Whitfield
"OUTSTANDING !…..With a challenging case, and out of state distances to consider, hiring a New Mexico attorney was a "no brainer". In addition to that, I found out that dealing with the New Mexico Motor Vehicle Division (MVD) was near impossible when just trying to contact them, to say nothing of getting them to remove the out of state hold off my license. Attorney Valdez and his team worked tirelessly to straighten out a real mess for me and I couldn't be more pleased (and actually surprised) with the resulting positive outcome. Thank you Ashlea, Melissa, Shaniah and Glenn for everything!" Wes Walter
