DP&S is proud to announce that Santa Fe partners Roz Bienvenu, Justin Kaufman, and Caren Friedman will be serving on three important New Mexico rules committees in 2023. Roz was recently appointed to the Uniform Jury Instructions Civil Committee, where she will serve a one-year term with eligibility to serve for an additional six years. Roz has extensive experience assisting DP&S’s trial lawyer clients with jury instructions, and her appointment will give her the opportunity to help improve the uniform instructions and committee commentary to clarify New Mexico law. Justin has been serving on the Rules of Civil Procedure for State Courts Committee since his appointment by the New Mexico Supreme Court in 2021. This committee reviews, revises, and drafts new rules applicable to civil cases across the state. Caren has been serving on the Appellate Rules Committee since her re-appointment by the Supreme Court in 2020. The Court had previously appointed her to this committee in 2005 and to serve as chair from 2007 to 2010. The Appellate Rules Committee drafts and amends the rules governing proceedings in the New Mexico Court of Appeals and the New Mexico Supreme Court.
