Daniel J. Monte

Of Counsel

Having grown up in New Mexico, it is the place I call home. I completed my undergraduate degree from University of New Mexico in 1988 to go on and attend law school at Creighton University Law School in Omaha, Nebraska. Upon graduating from law school in 1992, I joined a firm in Missouri. In 1999, my family and I moved to Santa Fe, where I joined a law firm and focused my practice in estate planning, estate administration, real estate, and I represented several corporate fiduciaries.

For the past 11 years, I have worked in various senior management positions with a bank’s trust department in New Mexico and with a trust and wealth management company in Missouri.

In 2017 I decided it was time to move back home and focus on practicing law again. My primary areas of practice are estate planning, fiduciary services, trust administration, probate and elder law.

When I have free time, I love to go fly fishing, hiking and camping. I also enjoy running, woodworking, and motorcycles.
