How We Can Help


Legal solutions for the individual

Criminal cases such as a DWI, DUI, suspended license, drug charge or domestic violence battery involve a variety of factors which affect your life. Frechette & Associates understands that the competing demands of personal, family and work life mean that there is not one legal solution for everyone. One person may make very different decisions from another based upon their life priorities. Frechette and Associates will assist every client in achieving the best solution possible.

Breaking New Ground in Criminal Law

Rod and Michelle Frechette are known for their strong advocacy in criminal defense cases. The law firm of Frechette & Associates has over 50 years combined legal experience in New Mexico Courts and has handled more than 6,000 criminal cases. Members of the firm attend national criminal defense conferences. Rod Frechette is responsible for the important legal DWI precedent in State of New Mexico vs. Lasworth.

Criminal Case Evaluation and Strategy

Frechette & Associates evaluates each case and determines what the defenses may be for trial. Strong preparation and good pre-trial motions are important parts of a good defense. A plea bargain must have some element of the bargain which is beneficial to you. Education is an important facet of our services and we encourage our clients to examine all their options before making decisions which affect their driving and/or criminal record. This enables our clients to maximize the benefit of all the legal resources available to them.
