James Newell is a practicing lawyer in the state of New Mexico specializing in Criminal Defense Law.
Please describe a case in the last year or two where you made a big difference.

Can't really nail down a particular case since as an Assistant District Attorney, I was handling about 25 court settings per week. I successfully prosecuted many DWI & DV cases but also helped the defendants get help in Drug Court, substance abuse programs, and domestic violence programs.

How did you build a successful practice?

Working steadily for three years as an Assistant District Attorney. I have since opened my own office and have already assisted some defendants and victims with getting DV cases dismissed saving them thousands of dollars.

What should clients look for in a lawyer?

Honesty. Competence. A sense of caring.

How important is local knowledge to the success of your cases?

It doesn't hurt. Most DWI & DV cases are driven by state statute, but every once in a while, a local ordinance comes into play.

What information can you provide in a free phone consultation?

I don't guarantee results but I will work for the best outcome I can. I'm honest. If I can help them in a way where they save money or don't have to pay me, if it is in the best interest of the client, I have and will do so. Tell them my fee for the type of case presented.

What information do you need in a free phone consultation?

What happed and what are they looking for. If it looks like my representation is mutually acceptable, get them into my office to launch the representation.

What differentiates you from other lawyers in your community?

Not sure. I don't put myself above anyone else in the community. However, my policy of putting the client's best interests above potential income may be a bit unique.

What is the most rewarding aspect of your job?

Probably helping others in a meaningful way. My card states my mission: "Advocate for the Individual and the Community." I also love the independence of running my own office.

What are your other interests in addition to law?

Lots - sports, travel, family, politics (although I don't care for politicians), economics, the Gospel of the Grace of Christ, to name a few.

Are you involved in your community?

Only as a byproduct of my occupation and interests.
