is is the inaugural post for “Our bLAWg –The Ins and Outs of Family Law in New Mexico. We hope you find it both informative and a beneficial use of your time. In some of our upcoming bLAWgs, you will find useful information of father’s rights, how to handle holiday visitation, and the benefits to a mediated, collaborative or uncontested divorce.
First, a little information on Cortez & Hoskovec, LLC. The firm was established by myself, Michelle Cortez, in 1996. I was born and raised in Nebraska and graduated from the University of Nebraska with a degree in journalism in 1990 and my law degree in 1995. I met my husband at the University of Nebraska and we relocated to New Mexico in 1995. I trained under several local attorneys for a short time before opening my own firm in 1996.
Why Family Law? I practice family law because it is truly my calling. Perhaps it is the relational aspect. I actually enjoy hearing about each individual client’s problems and finding solutions to those problems. I enjoy the specialized aspects of family law. I enjoy mediating their issues and helping them find solutions to their unique legal problems. And yes, when necessary, I enjoy battling for my client’s rights.
We enjoy your comments on our bLAWg which you can email to firstname.lastname@example.org. See you next Monday.
