“Every member brings a particular skill set and experience to the team, but all share in being intelligent, ethical, creative thinkers who are passionate about the law. Our complex cases demand knowledge of existing law, the imagination to puzzle out a path to the desired result, and the tenacity and logistical competencies to achieve it. I am proud to work with exceptional individuals who, together, are wholly up to the challenge.”

The Law was a career change for Ebony. After years in a fast-paced, East Coast publishing environment, Ebony returned to school, adding a degree in Paralegal Studies to her B.A. in Communications. The career change allows Ebony to really dig into her new work using her strategy, research and communication skills to identify the unique issues of a case. She enjoys interaction with clients and earning their trust over the lifetime of the case.
Ebony is a New Mexico Notary Public. Outside of the office she enjoys traveling, photography and spending time with family and friends.
In-depth familiarity with the law is a distinct advantage for a legal assistant. Michael’s experience includes six years in the N.M.courts, three of which were spent reviewing court documents for Santa Fe’s nine District Court judges. For WBMH, that makes Michael a resource able to quickly prepare error-free documents, styled to suit the exact preferences of the court and its judges. This know-how translates directly to the smooth furtherance of our clients’ cases.
Earlier in his career, Michael held positions at the La Cienega Fire Department, the Santa Fe Regional Emergency Communications Center, and the Santa Fe Police Department. All required on-the-spot judgment calls, often with life-changing implications. Michael’s ability to function well under pressure also serves him well at WBMH.
