Firm Overview

Firm Overview

We are a law firm that represents real people with real injuries. We pursue claims and cases against those responsible for car accidents, trucking accidents, bicycle wrecks, and unsafe premises. We hold careless companies responsible for their actions, including negligent hiring, negligent supervision, negligent training, and negligent retention of employees that endanger and hurt others. We also fight insurance companies that use illegal and unfair claims handling practices to break their promises.

Attorney Matthew Vance focuses on representing those hurt and harmed because of the negligent or reckless conduct of others, including in car accidents, trucking wrecks, and unsafe premises. As an attorney, Matthew Vance is dedicated to holding people and corporations responsible for their actions. When people choose to needlessly endanger others with their negligent or reckless actions or when a corporation makes a choice to put profits ahead of people, lawyer Matthew Vance is there to protect the injured and to ensure responsibility and accountability.

If you or a family member have been hurt in a traumatic car crash or harmed by the careless actions of someone else, I would like to see if I can help. Maybe it’s help getting back to where things were before the crash or incident. Maybe it’s a matter of getting something for ongoing medical needs or to make up for the hurt that has been caused. Either way, it’s about holding the other person responsible for their actions and accountable for the harms they have caused. It’s not a time to take chances.

Our law firm focuses on representing people hurt or harmed because of the careless or reckless behavior of others. We are a local law firm; not an out-of-state company of lawyers. Matthew Vance has worked in law offices in Santa Fe and Albuquerque since 1989 and as an attorney for the past 17 years. Matthew Vance worked for the insurance companies as a defense attorney early on and saw first-hand how they work. You can expect the insurance company to put profits ahead of people, you can expect them to seek to avoid responsibility, and you can expect them to break more promises than they keep. They will try to delay your claim and make low ball offers to wear you down. They will seek to use their system of experienced adjusters and attorneys against you. Matthew Vance got sick of what he saw as a defense lawyer and started representing real people with real injuries against the insurance companies. That’s why we focus our practice on helping people just like you; people hurt through no fault of their own. We fight hard and aggressively for our clients. We prepare every case for trial. We prepare every case to win.

A Dedicated and Knowledgeable Personal Injury Attorney – Matthew Vance

If someone’s careless or illegal actions cause you or a loved one injury, they should expect to be held responsible and accountable for the harms and losses they have caused. All too often people don’t accept responsibility. All too often the insurance companies involved won’t tell you about available coverage that would help you; coverage you paid for and are entitled to. Worse, many insurance adjusters have been trained to make up excuse after excuse not to pay. The first line of defense may be to deny your claim. If you make it past that, they delay, delay, and delay in order to hold onto the insurance company money and continue to make profits on its investment. The final tactic may be a low-ball offer – hoping that with all the delay they created and the sense of guilt they tried to make you feel for making a claim in the first place, that you will take the small amount of money they have offered and you will go away forever. If they underpay you by a dollar and repeat that several thousand times a day across the country, they have profited in the thousands of dollars through unfair and illegal claims handling. That’s just the small scale; insurance companies underpay individual claims of the unrepresented in the thousands of dollars every day. Personal injury cases have become increasingly complex because insurance companies have changed their business practices to make the claims handling process more intimidating and adversarial for the unwary and unrepresented. They will seek to take advantage of you. It’s now in their culture and the nature of their business model.

I know the rules. I know the process. I used to be an insurance defense attorney. Get the experience of a former insurance defense attorney on your side. Together we can tear down their false defenses and make them take responsibility for their actions and the actions of their insured. We can hold them accountable for all of the hurt and losses they have caused you and your family. It’s our responsibility to do that on each and every case. If we don’t, they get away with it and that reinforces their bad behavior – makes it more likely they will do it again … to someone else.

Albuquerque Based Personal Injury Lawyer Helping Injured People All Over New Mexico

What do you need your lawyer to do for you? Unfortunately, too many law firms focus more on ego and appearance than results. At the Law Office of Matthew Vance, P.C., you will know that my focus is on you. Providing results-based representation while maintaining professional integrity is the hallmark of my practice. I have a passion for helping people who have been injured as the result of someone else’s negligence, recklessness, or purely spiteful conduct. This includes holding companies, like apartment complexes, trucking companies, big-box stores, and insurance companies, responsible when they put profits ahead of people and safety.

Located in Albuquerque, but practicing throughout New Mexico, I want to get the best results for you. Our offices are in downtown Albuquerque at 201 3rd Street, NW, Suite 1920. While I may be based on Albuquerque, I travel throughout New Mexico to help those harmed by others. We have represented clients in Albuquerque, Santa Fe, Tierra Amarilla, Las Cruces, Deming, Gallup, Grants, Tucumcari, and all points in between and around. If you live outside of Albuquerque, there is no reason not to call and talk with me. You won’t pay more in attorney fees for an Albuquerque personal injury attorney. If I can help, I will tell you and tell you how I think I can help.

We accept personal injury cases on a contingency fee basis. That means you don’t pay anything out of your pocket for our legal services. In fact, you don’t pay unless we make a recovery – there is no fee, if there is no recovery. If there is a recovery, then our fee is a percentage of the recovery. We also typically advance all costs associated with your case. We carry those costs until there is a recovery. This fee arrangement helps to ensure we only take cases we believe in, cases where our clients have truly been wronged and hurt, and gives us some “skin-in-the-game” to do our absolute best for our clients.

You will work directly with me throughout every phase of your case. Call me at 505-242-6267 or contact my office by email to schedule a free consultation. To serve you better, I focus entirely on personal injury and insurance litigation.
