“A compilation of brief biographical sketches of prominent persons in a particular field. That’s how Merriam-Webster defines the term “who’s who.” With that definition in mind, Albuquerque Business First’s editorial team set out to identify 10 local attorneys who fit the bill. Our goal was to pick a group of people who not only embodied that definition but who represented a variety of sectors from across the state. From government to aerospace to cannabis — and lots in between — these honorees represent what makes New Mexico unique. These are the people who help to support and propel both
established and emerging fields. And while for one of our honorees her contributions are literally out of this world, each of these attorneys is doing their part to strengthen New Mexico. From their job responsibilities to their next big career goals, the following Who’s Who in Law feature showcases 10 of the area’s top legal minds. A special Who’s Who in Law section can also be found in the Jan. 21 edition of the paper.”
