About Us

Rothstein Donatelli LLP was established in 1976. The Santa Fe office was opened in 1976 by Robert Rothstein. In 1991, the Arizona office was opened by Eric N. Dahlstrom, specializing in Indian Law. Peter Schoenburg, practicing criminal defense, opened the Albuquerque office in 1993.

The Santa Fe office is home to partners Mark H. Donatelli, Richard W. Hughes, and Donna M. Connolly. The partners leading the Tempe, Arizona practice are Eric N. Dahlstrom and April Erin Olson. The Albuquerque office is led by partners Peter Schoenburg, Carolyn "Cammie" M. Nichols, Marc M. Lowry and Carey Bhalla.

The firm specializes in criminal defense; complex civil and commercial litigation, including civil rights, police misconduct; catastrophic injury and wrongful death; Indian law, including gaming, contract and transactional matters, economic development, natural resources, and water law, and employment and discrimination law.

The firm is privileged to have working with us an associate attorney group diverse in background and experience. They are, in Santa Fe, Megan Dorsey and Allison Athens; in Albuquerque, Arne Leonard, Roshanna Toya, Margie Rutledge and Wouter Zwart; and Jordan Hale, Chase Velasquez and Jeneva Parks in Tempe.

Our attorneys are supported by top-quality, well-trained paralegals. That group consists of: in Albuquerque, M. Esther Lopez, Patricia Sanchez, and Rachael Coronado; in Santa Fe, Jacqueline Pena. We could not produce the high-quality results our clients expect without the assistance of this invaluable team.

We serve clients nationwide.
