Get to Know Arthur

Optimizing Life's Moments

In my free time, I enjoy staying active and exploring the great outdoors. You can often find me hiking scenic trails or hitting the slopes for a day of snowboarding. I also love to travel and immerse myself in new cultures, with each trip bringing fresh experiences and memories.

Family and friends are incredibly important to me, and I cherish the moments spent with them. One of my favorite traditions is hosting Armenian BBQs, where we come together to enjoy delicious food and great company. Whether it's an adventurous hike, a snowboarding trip, or a lively gathering with loved ones, I always strive to balance my professional life with fun and meaningful activities.

Meet Arthur

Arthur is a dedicated attorney with a rich background in both criminal defense and municipal prosecution. Born in Armenia and raised in Albuquerque, New Mexico, Arthur brings a unique cultural perspective and deep community ties to his practice.

Arthur earned an undergraduate degree from the University of New Mexico before pursuing a legal education at Thomas Jefferson School of Law in San Diego, California. 

As a legal professional with a background in both criminal defense and prosecution, he brings a wealth of experience and a unique perspective to the practice as a family law attorney. His journey began as a trial attorney at the Public Defenders Office, where he honed his skills in advocating for clients facing severe and often life-altering charges. This role required not only a deep understanding of the law but also a strategic approach to presenting cases in court, negotiating plea deals, and ensuring his clients’ rights were protected at every step.

Subsequently, he served as an Assistant City Attorney in Rio Rancho , where he gained invaluable insights into the prosecutorial process. This position allowed him to understand the intricacies of building a case from the ground up, presenting evidence convincingly, and striving for justice on behalf of the City. His experience on both sides of the courtroom has endowed him with a balanced perspective, allowing him to anticipate opposing strategies and effectively counter them.

Transitioning into family law, particularly in divorce and child custody cases, these experiences have proven indispensable for Arthur. His trial attorney background equips him with exceptional litigation skills, enabling him to advocate fiercely for his clients in contentious divorce proceedings. His prosecutorial experience, on the other hand, provides a thorough understanding of case strategy and evidence, crucial for navigating the complex legal landscape of family law.

His ability to remain calm under pressure, developed through years of criminal trials, ensures that he can provide steady, reliable counsel to clients during their most challenging times. Additionally, his comprehensive knowledge of the legal system, coupled with a compassionate approach, allows him to offer tailored, strategic advice aimed at achieving the best possible outcomes for his clients through divorce or child custody proceedings.

Ultimately, his career trajectory—from defending the accused to prosecuting offenders, and now advocating for families—demonstrates a commitment to justice and advocacy. This diverse background empowers him to be a formidable and empathetic advocate in the realm of family law, dedicated to securing the rights and interests of his clients with both tenacity and understanding.
