August 15th 2020: For the second time in four years, Michael Golden has been chosen as Best Santa Fe Family Lawyer of the Year by Best Lawyers. This honor marks the fifth time since 2012 that a WBMH attorney has been recognized as being at the top of the field.

The honor is particularly satisfying, since it is based on peer review. Best Lawyers uses a process designed to capture the consensus opinion of local lawyers about the professional abilities of their colleagues. To be named Lawyer of the Year means Golden’s professional colleagues rated him highest overall for a family lawyer in Santa Fe.

Golden has been practicing family law for over 40 years, 31 of which were as partner at Moore & Golden. His career has spanned all aspects of family law, but Golden’s preferred work is in alternative dispute resolution. Golden joined WBMH in 2016, of counsel, to continue this work in financially complex cases. Along with his WBMH colleagues, Golden focuses on family law cases in which financial or geographic complexities require the highest level of family law competence.

Golden and WBMH partners David Walther and Sarah Bennett were also selected by their peers for inclusion in the 2020 edition of Best Lawyers in America, a distinction all three have earned year after year.

WBMH serves New Mexico and out-of-state clients from offices located at 123 E. Marcy Street, Suite 205, in Santa Fe, New Mexico. For more information, please visit or contact Amber Macias-Mayo at 505-795-7117.
