Deena L. Buchanan

Deena has been licensed to practice law in New Mexico since 1998. She is originally from rural Pennsylvania and was the first member of her extended family to go to graduate school. She graduated from the University of Pittsburgh with highest honors in 1995. At Pitt, she sang with the internationally touring a cappella Heinz Chapel Choir and served in student government. In 1998, she graduated with honors from Georgetown University Law Center after serving as an Administrative Editor of the Georgetown Journal of Legal Ethics. After law school, she moved to New Mexico to begin her law career at a large firm in Albuquerque. She then practiced with large firms and a Fortune 500 company in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, gaining great experience on cases that drew national attention.

In 2008, Deena brought her family back to New Mexico, where she continued to get trial and litigation experience in all aspects of injury law, medical malpractice and employment law. She founded the Buchanan Law Firm, LLC in 2019. She is “AV-Preeminent” peer-rated by Martindale-Hubbell, a national independent peer review group, and has received high praise from clients, mediators, judges and other lawyers.

Outside of work, Deena enjoys exploring the amazing outdoors throughout New Mexico and the Southwest. She is an avid skier, nature photographer, hiker and is known to cast a fly now and then. She and her family are based in both Albuquerque and Santa Fe, New Mexico.
