Eric Anaya has been practicing criminal law for over a decade. His legal knowledge started out at the University of New Mexico where he discovered his passion for criminal law. While attending law school, Eric was appointed to the University of New Mexico's Board of Regents by the Governor of New Mexico. Eric decided to move to Colorado to accept a position in the El Paso County District Attorney's Office. He prosecuted hundreds of cases in County Court, but quickly was promoted to prosecute felonies. Realizing that prosecution was not the career path he wanted to continue, Eric made the conscious decision to change his practice and his life to defending those wrongly accused. Eric has successfully handled hundreds of cases. He has tried dozens of high-level felony cases to include murder cases (including being a part of a death penalty team), violent crimes, complex sexual assault cases, organized crime and economic crime cases.
Eric partnered with Cynthia McKedy to form an aggressive criminal defense team that offers exceptional representation for both adults and juveniles accused of a crime. At Anaya-McKedy, P.C., the attorneys pride themselves on providing the best possible outcome for their clients while treating them with the highest level of respect and professionalism. Our goal is to show the district attorney that you are a person and not just a case file. No matter the level of crime charged in the case, we understand the allegations filed against you are the most important thing in your life and we treat each case with that same level of importance.
