Prior to John Day Law, John had a successful tenure as a partner in one of Santa Fe?s oldest and largest law firms where he practiced in the same areas of NTL - Criminal Defense - Top 100, civil litigation and government misconduct/civil rights litigation.

John has represented clients in courts throughout New Mexico. He has successfully defended cases involving national security clearance matters, white-collar offenses, homicide, violent crime, and drug offenses, among others. He has provided personalized legal representation to families and institutions with special legal problems and crisis situations, both here and abroad.

John?s prior careers as Deputy District Attorney in northern New Mexico and as an award-winning investigative reporter covering political corruption in the Southern U.S. have served him well in the field of law.

John?s family began cattle ranching in New Mexico in the 19th century, and founded the (now-ghost) town of Dayton, New Mexico, in Eddy County. He graduated from Harvard University in 1985 with a degree in history, focusing on New Mexico?s past, and earned his Juris Doctorate from the University of New Mexico in 1995.
