Law School: Georgetown (1984)


I am currently running for office in New Mexico. On March 1, 2014, I was unanimously nominated as the Republican Candidate for Attorney General of New Mexico.

In 1984, I began my career in Albuquerque as a prosecutor. I moved to Las Cruces in 1992. Following the election of 1996, I served as the Chief Deputy District Attorney in Las Cruces for 14 years under D.A. Susana Martinez who is now the Governor of New Mexico.

I was appointed in 2011 and spent almost two years as a District Judge presiding over domestic relations and criminal cases.

I grew up in a small town on the edge of Cincinnati, Ohio, attended the University of Cincinnati and graduated cum laude in 1981. I then went on to Georgetown University Law Center.
