New Mexico Personal Injury Lawyers

Personal Injury, Wrongful Death, and Civil Trial Lawyers with An Aggressive, Complex Trial Approach.

Based out of Albuquerque, NM, Davis Kelin represents injured clients and their families throughout the state of New Mexico. Davis Kelin is one of the top litigation firms in New Mexico and recognized as Best Law Firms by U.S. News. The firm has recovered over one hundred million dollars for clients, obtained some of the largest civil verdicts in New Mexico, and successfully fought for changes in the law that benefit ordinary people.

The trial lawyers at Davis Kelin are passionate about their clients and improving our communities through their work. Our goal is to give our clients the best possible representation and recover as much compensation as possible to help mitigate the losses they have incurred. We understand that no amount of money can fix reverse a serious injury, but it can help cover medical costs, and in some cases replace lost income. Contact Davis Kelin today to see how we can help you. We offer free consultations.

We founded Davis Kelin with one goal in mind: to provide the highest quality legal representation to each client on an individual basis. Our team of Albuquerque personal injury lawyers is sensitive to the fact that almost nothing compares to what you may be going through, whether you’re a victim, a family member or close friend. Dealing with a personal injury, malpractice or even a wrongful death case is arguably one of life’s most unpleasant experiences. Furthermore, litigation costs can reach into the hundreds of thousands of dollars over a just a couple of years. Many firms require upfront payment towards costs, but in most cases, Davis Kelin will cover all of the costs required to achieve a successful resolution.

Each case is unique and can take anywhere from a few months to a few years to resolve. Having an experienced New Mexico personal injury attorney on your side can help you be more successful in your case.

The attorneys at Davis and Kelin will handle tasks such as gathering and submitting the necessary paperwork on time, acquiring expert witnesses, and negotiating a fair settlement.

Lawyers with an Aggressive, Complex Trial Approach.

As an Albuquerque personal injury law firm, we have a unique process for trial preparation, throughout which, our hope is that you’ll feel empowered to take a stand, and no longer feel like the victim. Beyond compensation, we are dedicated to litigating injury cases to punish the wrongdoer, or tortfeasor, who would rather ignore these rules to benefit themselves. A large verdict also makes a clear statement, voiced by juries who wish to help ensure that our society runs smoothly and fairly by deterring others from committing such acts.

Davis Kelin is not a high-volume firm. We put a significant amount of time and resources into every case we accept. This means we can only take the small percentage of the cases we review that meet our case selection criteria. The cases we take on generally involve catastrophic injuries, wrongful death, egregious violations of rights, or are otherwise of significant public importance. We only take cases that we are willing to take to trial.

Significant cases use significant resources, often costing hundreds of thousands of dollars to prosecute. Davis Kelin has the financial resources and wherewithal to advance these case costs for our clients.

What is Your Personal Injury Claim Worth in New Mexico?

In New Mexico, the most common damages you can receive for your personal injury claim are: economic and non-economic. Economic damages refer to measurable economic losses like lost wages, medical expenses, and property damage. Non-economic damages are not calculable losses and refer to things such as emotional distress or pain and suffering.

In certain cases, you may be awarded punitive damages. Punitive damages are meant to punish the wrong-doer and are only awarded in cases of egregious misconduct.

Each case is unique and how much compensation you will be awarded depends upon the details of your case, and the role you played, if any, in your injuries.


We pride ourselves in helping our clients win the most compensation possible. We are so confident in our abilities to help you that we will not ask for payment until you win compensation.

These are fantastic lawyers with a good network of outside sources when needed. It is hard to find great lawyers who are also great people. These lawyers are both. We were very fortunate to find this firm who negotiated a very good settlement and represented us well. Definitely would recommend Ben Davis and his firm. 5 Stars!!!

Ben was a huge help for me with a malpractice legal matter. His calm demeanor helped deal with a very distressing situation. He went above and beyond to help me, a single mom dealing with 2 legal matters at a time. His professionalism and dedication, even though he didn't end up taking the case has been heaven sent. I would recommend him and Zack to anyone!
