How did your firm decide on the primary area of practice(s)?

After law school, Steve Aarons served as a military prosecutor in Germany and there developed a lifelong love for criminal law. When he returned to Santa Fe he served as senior public defender in charge of all death penalty trials throughout the state. After a stint with the Jones Firm, Steve started his own practice almost exclusively in the field of criminal defense ranging from juvenile law, DUIs and felony cases of all descriptions.

Steve has taught criminal trial advocacy courses at some of the top law schools including Harvard Law School, Oxford University in Great Britain, SMU, the University of Virginia and the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque. He handled over 33 death penalty cases including 13 trials before New Mexico abolished capital punishment.
