Rudy Chavez

Attorney at Law

I started practicing law in 1982, which means I have over 40 years of experience representing clients and their cases. Before starting my own practice in 1995, I spent a few years as an Assistant County Attorney, helping me to better understand the ins and outs of the legal system. I take pride in helping people, and if I can’t help you, I will find someone who can. No one should go without representation just because they can’t afford it. If you live in Albuquerque, New Mexico, or the surrounding areas of Belen, Los Lunas, and Rio Rancho, New Mexico, it is my pleasure to provide you with the legal help you can depend on.


The Advocacy
You Deserve

Committed to our Clients

Clear Communication

Whether you need help when you are injured or criminal defense, I am here to communicate with you, so you understand how your case will proceed. Any legal issue can seem daunting and confusing, but I will be with you every step of the way so you will always know what could happen next and your options.

Collaborative Planning

I am committed to helping each of my clients through their unique situations. A large part of that is listening to what you have to say, not what I want to hear. Working collaboratively with my clients, I include them in the decision-making process to ensure they have some control over how we proceed.

Areas of Service


Personally Invested in Your Representation

Any sort of legal issue is stressful, so it is important to have representation invested in helping you through the process. In order to provide you the best possible legal guidance, I take time to understand your problems on a personal level. Whether it’s a DUI, auto accident, or personal injury claim, I want to comprehend the situation and its impact on you, so I may best understand exactly what you need.

If you need to file a claim because of an accident or negligence, I will comb through the details with you to help you build a case of liability, and ensure you understand all rules of fault, such as comparative negligence. I will walk you through the next steps of filing a complaint and what the trial and settlement will look like. My goal is to ensure my client receive the settlement they deserve.

When you have been charged with a DWI or DUI, it is essential to have a criminal defense attorney willing to stand for you in court. A DUI conviction risks loss of license, jail time, and expensive fines or insurance rates. I have defended over 9,000 DWI cases in New Mexico, with a 90% success rate. My extensive and intimate knowledge of DWI law is born from over 40 years of experience representing clients and their needs.

My passion is helping people in need, whether you need defense, or someone to come alongside you as you file for chapter 7 bankruptcy. It is my pleasure to serve Albuquerque, New Mexico, and the neighboring areas of Belen, Los Lunas, and Rio Rancho, New Mexico. Eventually, everyone has legal problems, the first step is to get a meeting with an attorney you can trust.
