ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – Attorney General Hector Balderas announced the disbursement of more than $60,000 to New Mexico Legal Aid.
“Protecting the rights of vulnerable New Mexicans has always been a top priority for my office, and I am pleased the funding that we recovered will be used for that purpose,” Balderas said.
According to Balderas’ office, the money came from unclaimed funds paid by a defendant in a recently closed case. The money will be redistributed via court order to help New Mexico Legal Aid support New Mexicans who need legal assistance.
“New Mexico Legal Aid offers a vital service; providing legal guidance and representation to New Mexicans without the means to pay for it themselves,” Balderas said.
