I hired Alisha Ann Maestas after consulting with her via telephone. She was actually a referral from another brilliant attorney with a conflicting caseload. Living outside New Mexico, I became comfortable with Counselor Maesta's professional demeanor and unpretentious ability to listen and communicate her strategy. Her ensuing interview, forensic case review, and provision of advance notice of all proceedings and scheduling conferences convinced me that this was an excellent referral. Her direct experience in the Albuquerque court system, knowledge of the law, and ability to negotiate with the courts, saved us time, as well as travel and court costs, as she successfully negotiated and produced all documents necessary to waive arraignment and the need to personally appear. Needless to say, the relationship had a positive conclusion and I hold her service and wisdom in high regard.

I was a client of Alisha Maestas. I hired her to represent me in a petty misdemeanor battery case. Once I paid her, I found her to be unresponsive and uncommunicative. When I was at my wits end trying to contact her for information about my case, I would threaten to fire her. This would elicit a text response (she preferred to communicate via text message). She would claim to be in back to back continuing education seminars and would be oddly argumentative and insulting towards me. She also made verbal assurances at our first and only meeting that she would try to retrieve my personal effects for me from the true aggressor in this case, but did not put this information in her contract and later tried to back out of this assurance. I also felt that she was not loyal to me as a customer, and therefore had difficulty trusting her. I found Ms Maestas to be very unprofessional.

Alisha used to be an attorney in the albuquerque district attorneys office so she has alot of insight into the inner workings of that office. She did a great job for me always prompt with communication and keeping me abreast with the progress of my case.
