Cuddy & McCarthy, LLP

Cuddy & McCarthy, LLP is a well-established Santa Fe and Albuquerque law firm with roots dating back to 1917.  We’re seasoned lawyers who provide our clients with what they need: solid, practical and knowledgeable lawyering.

We are a general practice firm representing individuals, business and nonprofit entities, tax-exempt organizations and utilities as well as federal, state, tribal and local governmental institutions and agencies. We also represent the majority of New Mexico school districts and several of our state’s universities and colleges.

Our Firm has been recognized in “The Best Law Firms in America®” published by U.S. News and World Report, and many of our attorneys hold “AV” peer ratings (the highest rating level) in the Martindale-Hubbell Law Directory. Some of our partners are also recognized as “Super Lawyers” and as “Best Lawyers in America.”

The Firm’s range of experience and practice allows for flexibility in the representation of our clients. Either a single attorney or a team of attorneys and support personnel, as needed, are available to address a client’s needs. We’ve also invested in top-tier technology, all to serve our clients effectively and efficiently.

Having offices in the State capitol and also in the most populous city in New Mexico gives us easy access to governmental agencies, commercial centers and certain appellate courts and administrative or regulatory hearings that are only held in Santa Fe and Albuquerque.

Our attorneys look forward to the opportunity to assist you.
