Chelsea Garnenez is the first face you see when you walk in our office and is the receptionist here at Batley Family Law, P.A.  Chelsea has been with Batley Family Law a little over two years.  Prior to working with us she worked at LoboRESPECT at the University of New Mexico helping students receive support and advocacy services in the aftermath of a crisis — including sexual assault, hazing and hate or bias related incidents.  It’s no wonder that one of the reasons she likes working in the field of family law is because she values helping clients who are dealing with very personal issues.

In her free time Chelsea volunteers with NM CASA Network (Court Appointed Special Advocates), an organization that provides trained volunteers to advocate in the best interest of children who have been removed from their home due to abuse and neglect. 

Chelsea also enjoys relaxing with her dogs and rabbit, exercising, cooking and spending quality time with her family.  She was born and raised in Navajo, New Mexico and her favorite vacation spot is back home on the reservation.

“Thanks for everything yesterday! I had a very informative and meaningful consultation with Batley Family Law. I can tell that they are compassionate and strong which I admire in a law firm. Their firm has written a great book on New Mexico Divorce Law and they had recommendations for books to help my kids in this process! Thanks for the great gifts as well. I look forward to working with them in the process that lies ahead.”


Bobbie Batley is unquestionably the top family lawyer in New Mexico, largely because of the amazing team she leads. This firm cares about their clients, and puts those needs out front. I will never hesitate to refer to this firm!”
