    Attorney Profile

    David Walther is one of the most esteemed family lawyers in New Mexico. With over 40 years of experience, he has been honored by his peers and has been perennially recognized as a leading attorney in his field by Martindale Hubbell, Best Lawyers and Super Lawyers. He is a Founding Member and Fellow of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers and has been named one of the top 100 Divorce Trial Lawyers in the U.S.

    Walther helped shape the practice of family law in the U.S. by co-authoring The Bounds of Advocacy, nationally recognized as establishing normative domestic relations practice. His opinions have been officially reported by state and federal courts over 50 times and he has had 2 articles cited by the United States Supreme Court.

    In 2013, Walther founded David Walther Law to concentrate on complex family law cases, those involving complex finances, or divorce and custody across state lines or national borders that entail a high level of complexity and professional cooperation. The firm prospered and 4 years later when Walther brought in other seasoned family law attorneys, became Walther Bennett Mayo Honeycutt. The firm continues to handle complex family law, including Hague Convention and appellate cases and divorces in which deferred compensation, trusts, assets in art and antiques, stock options, business valuations, deliberate financial deceptions (including misappropriation of joint property) are involved. 

    Walther has also recently become available to serve as a Special Master.
