“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.” -Martin Luther King, Jr.
New Mexico recognizes that ALL PERSONS are born equally free and have natural, inherent and inalienable rights, among which are the right to enjoy and defend life and liberty, as well as the right to seek and obtain safety and happiness. When these rights are violated by federal or state actors in positions of power, you have legal recourse to protect your civil and constitutional rights. Not only does this process allow you to seek damages for financial losses, it also discourages others from violating civil rights in the future.
Here at Martinez, Hart, Thompson & Sanchez, P.C., we take the rights of our clients seriously. We’re passionate about upholding the civil rights of those in our community. We also believe in educating our clients, so they can identify violations when they occur.
