After receiving a Bachelor of Arts in criminal justice from the University of New Mexico, Ms. Curtis went on to attend the University of New Mexico School of Law, where she was awarded her Juris Doctor in 1993 and was honored with the Tort Scholar Award.

Listed in The Best Lawyers in America*, she has also been named to The National Trial Lawyers: Top 100.

Ms. Curtis is the trustee of the LK Curtis Children's Fund, which supports the protection and education of New Mexico's children by seeking out programs that have the same goal in mind.
