Case Results Changing Laws. Changing Lives.

Record-Setting Verdicts

While obtaining a just result for clients who need and deserve compensation for their losses is our highest priority, we know that it is just as important to our clients that defendants agree to make safety changes so that no one else suffers the same loss.

That said, sometimes companies just don’t listen to anything but large judgments and jury verdicts. Our best asset in convincing companies to change their ways is the risk of a large verdict against them.

In that arena, MMLCS has a proven track record, having obtained several of the largest jury verdicts for personal injury cases in New Mexico history. Below is information on some of those verdicts.
