Albuquerque Attorneys
Introduction

Albuquerque Attorneys handling cases throughout New Mexico in the area of personal injury and wrongful death.   The bulk of our cases are in the area of medical malpractice with auto accidents and premises liability (slip and fall accidents) following as close seconds. 

We handle other personal injury and wrongful death claims as well such as work related injuries.  However, due to the New Mexico Workers’ Compensation Act’s exclusive remedy provisions, we handle only third party work related personal injury claims. 

We have successfully handled hundreds of personal injury and wrongful death cases across New Mexico since the firm opened in 2001.  Our attorneys have over 50 years of combined experience.   

We are honored to serve injury and wrongful death victims and their families.  We are grateful for the trust and confidence that our clients place in us and we strive to earn that trust each and every day with each and every client.

We offer a free initial case review in our areas of practice.  We strive to promptly review cases during the initial review stage.  Once this is done, we then do our best to fully evaluate a case.  Full case evaluations vary in time depending upon the area of practice.   

For instance, medical malpractice cases take quite some time to evaluate due to the necessity of an expert medical review of the file.  Auto accidents, premises liability and work related injuries can be evaluated fairly quickly. 

In addition to our statewide personal injury and wrongful death practice, Collins & Collins, P.C. also handles criminal and DWI defense, and divorce and family law matters in the Albuquerque and Rio Rancho metropolitan area. 

Collins & Collins, P.C. is conveniently located next to the Metropolitan, District and Federal court buildings in downtown Albuquerque .   Please feel free to contact us online through our website or by phone at 505.242.5958.

Our website and blogs have a great deal of information on our practice areas as well as the free case review and case evaluation processes

The time has come for Congress to address the injustice and absurdity of a 1950 Supreme Court Opinion denying military personnel basic patient rights.

Despite the odds being stacked against defendants at grand jury, there is much that can be done prior to grand jury that can help avoid the indictment and felony criminal charges.
The felony process can be pretty confusing for accused persons in Albuquerque and throughout New Mexico. In addition, the process differs from county to county. The process below applies to the process followed by the district attorney‘s office in Albuquerque. A felony criminal action may begin with an arrest or a felony warrant. If you …

Loss of income does not mean your child support will stop in New Mexico. However, it can be modified by court order. This requires action on your part through a Motion to Modify Child Support. It is important to file right away since you are fully liable for any back support no matter what the outcome is on the motion for any accrued support prior to the filing of the motion.
Many parents know that payment of child support is often a delicate topic because the parent receiving the support may depend heavily on receiving it each month. In turn, the parent paying the support may have a tough time making ends meet and still managing to pay their monthly child support obligation. In New Mexico, …

Guardianship over adults is often necessary to protect them. The process is fairly straightforward but can be lengthy so it is important to get started early.
Unfortunately, there comes a time in the lives of many adults when they are impaired to the point where they can no longer make decisions for themselves. This impairment can be the result of mental illness, physical disability or drug and alcohol abuse. In such situations, the New Mexico Probate Code Adult Guardianship provisions allows …

There are many consequences to a finding of domestic violence. These consequences are the same even where the case arose in family court rather than criminal court. It is important to understand these and to take domestic violence allegations very seriously. It is no exaggeration to say that a finding of domestic violence can have permanent and significant negative consequences.
After an alleged victim (the Protected Party) of domestic violence has filed a Petition for Order of Protection and the Temporary Order of Protection has been entered preventing the alleged abuser (the Restrained Party) from any contact with the alleged victim, the court holds hearing to determine whether or not the Petition provides enough information …

The marital residence is often a hot spot in a divorce. The emotions are high. This is in part due to the enormous financial consequences to the parties related to the fair division of the home.
A significant source of contention issue in many divorces is the valuing and allocating, or selling, the marital home. For most couples in New Mexico, and around the country, the residence is the most objectively valuable asset shared by the parties and, at times, it is the only source of possible revenue available to pay …

Settlement of a personal injury claim is generally by the numbers. Unfortunately, in many cases the adjuster will make it about more than that requiring all out litigation and in the end, it comes back to the numbers.
There are many myths surrounding personal injury claims. One persistent myth is the frivolous lawsuit. Related to the frivolous lawsuit myth is a basic misunderstanding of many concerning the ease of obtaining money from insurance companies. In fact, insurance companies are pretty protective of their funds and do not readily part with them. There are …

Defendants have few rights at grand jury. Evidence is limited. This accounts in large for the saying, “you could indict a ham...
The New Mexico Court of Appeals has drawn strict parameters around appeals of grand jury indictments. In so doing, it appears that the reach of Jones v. Murdoch has been sharply curtailed. In State v. Yaw, the defendants through their attorneys issued a “Murdoch letter” to the prosecutor requested certain exculpatory information be presented to …

In New Mexico, a plea is considered a contract. Sentencing in violation of the plea is a breach of that contract.
A recent case before the New Mexico Court of Appeals clarified whether a court could sentence an individual to more time than agreed to in a plea agreement if a portion of that sentence was suspended. In State v. Miller, the Court held that the suspended portion of the sentence counted as part of the …
