The State Bar of New Mexico is a professional membership organization of attorneys licensed to practice law in New Mexico. The organization was established in 1886 and is currently a 501(c)(6) corporation.
The mission of the State Bar is to be a united and inclusive organization serving the legal profession and the public.
In addition to providing services and benefits to our members, they work to provide a number of public services and pro bono opportunities for the public.
The Ask-a-Lawyer Call-in Program is hosted each year by the State Bar of New Mexico to provide legal advice to New Mexicans free of charge.
Volunteer attorneys staff a phone bank where members of the public can call in and get answers to their legal questions in a variety of areas including employment law, divorce, child support, landlord/tenant issues, personal injury, estate planning, real estate and more.
Callers should be sure to have details and paperwork relating to their case available. They will first go through an intake process before speaking with an attorney.
Due to a high volume of calls, callers may experience wait times.
