New Mexico Legal Aid Helps People in Need
An attorney with the office of McGinn, Carpenter, Montoya & Love in Albuquerque, New Mexico, Kathleen (Kathy) Love helps people who have been severely injured or lost loved ones in tragic circumstances. Attorney Kathy Love is also a supporter of New Mexico Legal Aid.
New Mexico Legal Aid aims to improve justice and reduce poverty in the State of New Mexico. The organization provides free legal services to individuals and families who are otherwise unable to afford legal services.
Much of the organization’s work centers on issues related to families and housing. It operates a foreclosure defense project, meant to protect families who are in danger of losing their homes. Special protections are also available for migrant workers, who often lack access to legal support.
New Mexico Legal Aid also offers services to people who have been victims of domestic violence, sexual abuse, and stalking. These victims can turn to the organization for help with restraining orders, custody issues, and anything else they need to facilitate escape from dangerous environments.
