Tim Daniel

Sometimes you need a fresh start. Or a fresh perspective. Or someone to assert your legal rights.

Everyone needs to consult a lawyer at some point in their lifetime. When you consider that most legal issues have the potential to be life changing - for good or ill - it's essential that you are met with careful, empathetic and sound legal advice from an attorney who takes the time to listen first.

My name is Tim Daniel. I am a Santa Fe attorney but I practice all over northern New Mexico. My training in the law is traditional. However, my approach to problem solving is multi-disciplinary. I use a holistic model to meet my client's needs. That means that I treat each person as an individual. I don't just probe for legal issues; I take the time to discover the core values and priorities of the people I serve. I am usually able to offer several alternative solutions. Using this model, a satisfactory outcome is much more likely.

My law practice is focused on the needs of individuals and families facing difficult choices. Loan modification, foreclosure, repossession, credit card debt, bankruptcy including Chapter 7 and Chapter 13, liquidation and reorganization are all part of the work that I do every day.

Whenever possible, I provide legal representation and advice for standard legal issues at a predetermined flat fee. I believe that legal fees should be a budgetable item for individuals and families. Flat fees are cost-effective and provide you with certainty about legal expenses. They are available on many matters but are not appropriate for others. I charge an hourly rate on a retainer basis if the time and effort in resolving a legal issue is unpredictable. In my practice, open-ended types of matters requiring hourly billing are the exception rather than the rule.

I offer a free initial consultation. I invite you to call for an appointment to discuss your unique situation.
