Jones, Skelton & Hochuli opens offices in New Mexico, Utah

Jones, Skelton & Hochuli, PLC announced the opening of a new office in Albuquerque, New Mexico and a virtual office presence in Utah in the largest expansion of the firm’s footprint in its 38-year history. The Albuquerque office officially opened Monday, May 3.

“These moves reinforce our commitment to serving our national and regional clients in New Mexico and Utah with the same high standards of service, excellence and care that we have developed while operating in Arizona since 1983,” said William D. Holm, JSH managing partner. “JSH has grown to be the largest and most experienced law firm of trial and appellate lawyers in Arizona. Over the years, our client base has expanded, as have the needs of our clients. This will position us to best represent our clients with significant operations in New Mexico and Utah.

“We look forward to directly serving clients’ needs across all three states,” Holm said.

JSH welcomes attorneys Raul P. Sedillo and Fernando C. Palomares to its New Mexico office. Raul and Fernando have spent their entire legal careers in the Albuquerque area and both have strong roots in New Mexico.

“They share our firm’s commitment to unparalleled levels of efficient and responsive client services while focusing their work in practice areas that mirror ours,” Holm said.

The firm’s virtual office in Utah is supervised by Holm, who is licensed in Utah and splits his time between Utah and Arizona. A number of JSH’s Phoenix-based lawyers are also licensed in New Mexico, Utah, or both, and others are in the process of getting admitted.

“JSH intends to grow in both New Mexico and Utah as we remain nimble and agile in addressing legal needs for our clients in these markets,” Holm said. “Raul and Fernando’s work naturally aligns with our firm’s core practice areas, and our attorneys look forward to increased collaboration with them as we begin our work together.”
