Attorney Geoff Scovil
Geoff Scovil has his own private law practice in Albuquerque, New Mexico and focuses primarily on habeas corpus law and the protection of citizens' rights under the U.S. and New Mexico Constitutions. He has concentrated largely on criminal defense for indigent clients, whom he serves with an in-depth knowledge of the law of misdemeanor and felony crimes.

He holds a juris doctor from Case Western Reserve University School of Law in Cleveland, Ohio, where he enrolled in 1993 after receiving a perfect score on his Law School Admissions Test.
An avid athlete, traveler, and outdoorsman in his free time, Scovil also supports local and regional non-profit organizations such as the Outpost Performance Space, the New Mexico Wilderness Alliance, and New Mexico Legal Aid.
