About The Attorney

Sid Childress, New Mexico Attorney

My office is in Santa Fe, but I practice law throughout the State of New Mexico.

I’m “a Longhorn” (University of Texas at Austin – class of 1990). I
enlisted in the Marine Corps before attending UT and was in a
reserve unit while I attended UT. I was honorably discharged in
1990, one month before Saddam Hussein invaded Kuwait to start
the first Persion Gulf War. After UT and my stint in the Marine
Corps, in 1993 I finished law school at the University of Southern
California.  From 1994 to 2005 I was a busy sole practitioner in
Austin, Texas.  I picked many juries during this time period in
commercial, real estate, consumer law and personal injury cases.
As Austin is a very wealthy community and I practiced law there
during its “high-tech” boom of the late 90s and early 2000s, I also
handled many divorces involving the division of high net-worth
marital estates, including businesses, stock-options and intellectual

I have practiced law in New Mexico since 2006.  I provide proactive
lawyering to help people and their businesses solve problems.
