Amy B. Bailey

Litigation Manager

Albuquerque Divorce Attorney Amy BaileyAlbuquerque divorce attorney Amy B. Bailey found herself immediately interested in family law when she began a clerkship at a small law firm early in law school.

“I love the aspect of assisting people moving forward in their lives and guiding them out of a difficult time,” Ms. Bailey said.

Ms. Bailey’s ability to apply the law with common sense and advise clients with polite firmness has been an asset that has served her well since she began practicing law.

Her direct, no-nonsense approach enables her to give clients a realistic idea of what might happen during their case without creating any false expectations.

“I tell all clients that the three things I can never do is tell them how long it will take, how much it will cost, or what will happen in the end,” she said. “What I can do is work diligently on their behalf and assure that their interests are represented with integrity, common sense, and honesty.”
