Atkinson & Kelsey Law Office

Atkinson & Kelsey's History Of Helping People Like You

In 1948, William W. Atkinson began practicing law in Albuquerque. He began building our tradition of ethical, caring and successful legal representation.

In 1967, David H. Kelsey joined Bill Atkinson, sharing the same commitment to helping people through emotionally challenging cases.

Since then, the law firm of Atkinson & Kelsey has grown in size to include six lawyers. We are the largest law office in New Mexico that is devoted exclusively to the practice of divorce and family law, and we are passionate about achieving positive results for clients like you. If you have family law questions in the Albuquerque area, contact our New Mexico law firm today.

Our Commitment To A Truly Client-Centered New Mexico Divorce And Family Law Practice

Our lawyers are active in the field of family law. We write books that other attorneys study, such as the New Mexico Divorce Manual, as well as other articles on the topic for legal journals. We also teach the lawyers of the future by speaking at seminars to educate our peers.

We remain at the forefront of divorce and family law practice in New Mexico.

We were the first law firm to ever receive this prestigious award.
