Although well-versed in out-of-court negotiation, we aggressively prosecute every case. Insurance companies know that we’ve done our homework and that we will be ready for trial. We have the necessary resources and experience to tackle the most sophisticated cases. Our attorneys have gone toe to toe with against giant companies with seemingly endless resources. And won.
“Giants are not what we think they are. The same qualities that appear to give them strength are often the sources of great weakness.”

Free Consultation + 100% Contingency
For most cases, there are no attorney’s fees unless we win your case. Unlike other firms which require upfront payment of costs, we advance all of the costs required to advance the case to settlement or trial.
A Few Guiding Principles:
By enforcing the rules through the civil justice system, the number of injury victims will decrease and fewer companies, professionals, and other people will unfairly gain an advantage through their rule breaking.
Take the Fight to Them
Our mission is to compensate the victim’s loss that was the result of the tortfeasor’s rule-breaking and take away the tortfeasor’s short-term gain and ensure that others do not attempt the same thing. By enforcing the rules through the civil justice system, the number of injury victims will decrease and fewer companies, professionals, and other people will unfairly gain an advantage through their rule breaking.
Victory is Earned, Not Given
It’s just like the story of David and Goliath: when faced with an injury or insurance dispute, ordinary people and small businesses do not play on a level playing field. They often face tremendous obstacles from large insurance companies and giant corporations. As a trial team, we are committed to fully recovering the damages incurred by the negligence and greed of others through teamwork and communication.
Jury Verdicts Improve America
A jury is the conscience of our community; a jury’s verdict is the voice of our conscience. Throughout America’s history, juries have used their voice to improve life for all of us in numerous ways by entering large verdicts against those who chose to put profits ahead of our community. Jury’s are America’s way of improving the community and we are proud to exercise our 7th Amendment rights and prosecute cases that improve America.
If at First, You Don’t Succeed, Try, Try Again.
When trying cases against large corporations and insurance companies, there will be numerous roadblocks on the road to the finish line. What separates the great attorneys from the mediocre is how they deal with those roadblocks. Most will be stopped in their tracks. Others will turn around if they are not successful in removing the roadblock after their first try. The victor, however, will try, and try, and try again to succeed regardless of how daunting the roadblock that may lie in front of him. Most cases are difficult and the only way to succeed is to try, try and try again.
There Are Too Many Lawsuits.
Not every injury should end in a lawsuit. The ugly fact of life is that a small segment of the population would rather litigate every dispute then resolve them like neighbors. These types of lawsuits hurt those who truly need to tell their story to a jury and further erode the credibility of all attorneys. We are selective about the types of cases we chose file as lawsuits. This helps maintain the credibility of the entire justice system and provides our clients with the best possible representation.
One Frivolous Lawsuit is Too Many.
Frivolous lawsuits are an unfortunate reality of modern society. Frivolous lawsuits damage more than just the innocent party who was sued; they have far-reaching consequences on the entire justice system making it more difficult for deserving victims to be made whole. Fortunately, our court systems are equipped to quickly dispose of frivolous lawsuits.

Helping You Also Helps Our Society
As a society, we have set forth rules—e.g. traffic laws, regulations, professional rules, common sense, etc.—which we are all required to follow. These rules protect all of us from both injury and economic loss and they help ensure that our society runs smoothly and fairly.
A few companies, professionals, and others would rather ignore these rules to benefit themselves. That short-term gain can be financial, competitive, or just to get where they are going faster.
Their gain eventually causes damage to people who do follow the rules (the victims). To make up for that damage, our Federal and State Constitutions require that these wrongdoers (tortfeasors) are tried in a civil court for their actions and are required to pay damages to the victims of their short-term gain.
The civil courts, however, go beyond simple compensation to the victims. There is also a punishment requirement known as punitive damages. The punishment requirement is to not only deter the tortfeasor but to also deter other companies and professionals from engaging in the same conduct for short-term gains.
To compensate the victim’s loss that was the result of the tortfeasor’s rule-breaking and, more importantly, we seek to take away the tortfeasor’s short-term gain and ensure that others do not attempt the same thing.
100% Contingency Based

To win a personal injury case:
We must prove that the plaintiff was owed a duty of care and there was a breach of that duty which caused the injury, and damage was suffered resulting from that breach.
There are numerous types of Albuquerque personal injury claims. The commonality among all personal injury cases is that a legal duty was breached which resulted in harm. If you are the victim of a personal injury, a claim will generally entitle you to damages, which include past and future medical costs, lost income, compensation for pain and suffering and emotional distress.
Most personal injury claims fall under the category of a tort: A civil wrong, giving rise to a cause of action. A tort is when a person, either through a deliberate act or through careless behavior, causes harm or loss to another person or property. Those injured by a tort are eligible to recover punitive damages.
Most tort cases settle out of court. In other situations, the case will be presented in court to a judge or jury who will determine and award damages.
Court proceedings are required to commence within three years of the date of the accident.
Personal injury victims often experience severe injuries and disabilities, often resulting in exorbitant medical bills, inability to work, difficulty paying for basic living expenses as well as financial, physical and emotional stress.
Personal injury lawsuits can often take years to be settled. This is why it’s so important, in the days and weeks following a personal injury, to protect your right to compensation.
If you decide to file an injury claim, make sure you keep records, take notes, preserve evidence and locate witnesses.
