Story
Introduction
Bertrand R. Parnall is a native of Albuquerque. He attended Albuquerque High School where he was the salutatorian of his class in 1988 and co-captain of the district football champion Bulldogs. He earned his undergraduate degree from Rice University in 1993 with a double major in History and French. During his collegiate years, he trained in boxing at gyms in Houston and Albuquerque. Bert returned to New Mexico for law school where he graduated on the Honor Roll and passed the bar in 1997. After internships at Legal Aid, the US District Court for New Mexico, and private contract work, he was partner in a law firm that assisted victims of wrongful injuries and insurance company abuses. He then served as a Senior Trial Prosecutor in Valencia County from 2000 – 2004, convicting murderers and rapists through trial by jury. He re-entered private practice in Albuquerque in 2004, diving back into assisting victims of negligence and crime, in the context of civil trial litigation. His experience with both the civil and criminal justice systems has enabled him to share a larger perspective, and explore a wider range of resources, for his clients.

He proposed to Miss New Mexico 2001, Marta Strzyzewski, two weeks after having met. Happily, she accepted and they make their home in Albuquerque, together with their four children. Bert is also a board member of the Rotary Club of Albuquerque, and the New Mexico Trial Lawyers Association. The former President of New Mexico Judo, Inc., he holds a 2nd degree Black Belt in Judo.
