Rebecca Mulcahy was born and raised in Albuquerque, New Mexico. She attended the University of Florida for her undergraduate degree and returned to Albuquerque to attend the University of New Mexico School of Law. Ms. Mulcahy immediately immersed herself in the practice of law where she assisted low-income families in their district court cases through the University’s legal clinic, and completed 80 hours of mediation training. Ms. Mulcahy obtained professional experience before graduation, including one year as a legal researcher for a business law firm and two years as a law clerk in a fast-paced family law firm.

Upon graduating from the University of New Mexico School of Law, Ms. Mulcahy continued to focus her work in family law. She is a highly experienced attorney, having negotiated and litigated cases for families all over the State of New Mexico and is dedicated to providing quality legal service to her New Mexican community. Ms. Mulcahy is dedicated to giving back to her community, which is why 5% of the Firm’s annual net profit is donated to a local charity.

With a husband and multiple family members in the military, Ms. Mulcahy understands that military families face unique and difficult challenges in family law litigation. She is devoted to providing superior legal representation for military families, whether it is balancing child custody with the possibility of deployment, or calculating and achieving proper division of military retirement.

Divorce and custody
Rebecca was fair and honest. She always gave the best advice possible so I could make any decisions necessary. I couldn't ask for a better attorney with dealing with my divorce. She was excellent in helping me a secure an order of protection.

Step Parent Adoption Success!
We hired Mrs. Mulcahy to begin and process a step parent adoption in 2016. She was helpful and knowledgable guiding us through the process and always responded promptly to any questions or concerns. She was clear and upfront about all her billing rates and processes, which helped us with our budget. At each court or process requirement, she fully explained our rights and responsibilities, and put us in touch with her network of qualified professionals that were required for completing the step parent adoption (counselors, etc.). The whole process was fast! We started the initial paperwork in September with Mrs. Mulcahy and the judge signed off in December! Thanks to Mrs. Mulcahy, our little family is whole and we'll never go anywhere else for our family legal needs!

The perfect attorney for our family
When my husband and I were confronted with a serious family issue that revolved around custody of our granddaughter, we sought the services of Ms. Mulcahy via her former practice. We found her to be kind, sympathetic and very efficient. With little fuss and fanfare, she organized our case, keeping us in the loop at every step. During the six-month period, she made us feel as though our case was very important to her. At trial, she was stunning in the focus of her argument. Because of her, we won custody of our granddaughter, who is now safe and well protected. We feel blessed that we found her.
