Erlinda is an excellent lawyer! When going thru a hard time it is important to have a lawyer that is trustworthy and Erlinda definitely earned our trust from the very beginning, she is not only honest but also caring and very knowledgeable. I always felt very confortable with her because she took the time to explain everything. I would definitely recommend her she is an amazing attorney!

When you hire a lawyer, you will need to look for someone who is honest and work with you closely with full honesty! I have worked with lawyers that were not prepared and look at your case at the court without preparation, where Erlinda is fully prepared before the court and her explanation is very detailed. That's the kind of lawyer you need. Erlinda has great personality, honest and detailed.

Erlinda Johnson is hands down the absolute best criminal defense attorney in the Albuquerque/ Santa Fe area simply because she will not allow prosecutors to have their way which at times involves over exaggerated charges and sentences. Mrs. Johnson parted an ocean of time for me by getting me a 46 month plea, probation violation included as I was on federal probation at the time of my 2nd federal meth conspiracy case. Rest assured that Mrs. Johnson will leave no stone unturned and one will be 100% satisfied post sentence. Erlinda Johnson will not sell you out. She is the best.

Without a doubt, Erlinda is one of the best criminal defense lawyers in the State of New Mexico. She is well known and respected by Judges, court personel and other criminal law practitioners. More importantly, she is respected and feared by prosecutors in both state and federal court. She is an amazing trial lawyer and truly a tireless and zealous advocate for her clients. Not only have I referred clients to her, but I have worked with her on cases and seen first hand the preparation, knowledge of the law and tenacity that can make all the difference in serious legal matters. You cannot find a harder working, better prepared criminal defense lawyer.

Erlinda is incredibly tenacious, and her impressive legal skill, meticulous attention to detail, and relentless pursuit of every possible defense has resulted in dismissals and acquittals where many other attorneys may have recommended a quick plea deal. Erlinda is at the very top of my list of referrals to criminal defense attorneys. In addition to her many successful case outcomes, I appreciate the fact that Erlinda handles every case as if it were her only case. She has timely and knowledgeably responded to every inquiry that I have ever sent to her. As an immigration practitioner, I particularly appreciate her zealous advocacy in addressing all issues with potential case outcomes, including immigration matters.
