Las Cruces Lawyers

As you know, Las Cruces is one of the best places to reside in New Mexico. The beautiful Mesilla Valley has lots to offer in terms of outdoor activities, and the culture here is rich and vibrant.

But things aren’t always sunny in Las Cruces. Residents may find they need legal help for a variety of reasons.

From civil law matters such as contract disputes and business litigation, to personal injury cases that stem from a car wreck or workplace accident, the experienced attorneys at Nix Patterson can provide experienced counsel and representation for the residents of Las Cruces.

Who Is Nix Patterson?

As an accomplished and experienced national law firm, Nix Patterson provides a range of quality legal services answering the needs of the diverse population in Las Cruces and the surrounding areas. We specialize in a variety of practice areas, from civil litigation to personal injury and sensitive personal matters, as we handle cases for individuals, businesses, and class actions. Our experienced attorneys have a wealth of knowledge and expertise and work diligently to ensure that our clients receive the highest quality of representation.

Injury Litigation

Heavy Truck Accidents

Nix Patterson can help you fight for compensation if you were injured in a truck wreck in Las Cruces. Large commercial truck accidents are becoming more common on the open highways of Las Cruces, including US 70 and along the I-10 corridor, and these accidents can cause catastrophic injuries that impact a family’s life forever. Truck accidents may involve a commercial vehicle belonging to a business. The representative of the driver’s insurance will always look out for the best interest for their clients. This can compromise fair treatment of the victim of an accident who needs support with medical and other injury-related expenses. An experienced law firm can help you navigate the process and protect your rights in Las Cruces.

Oil Field Injury

With the rapidly expanding gas and oil industry in New Mexico over the past few years, we are seeing a significant increase in oil field injuries. These injuries include worker injuries from falls, fires, noxious gasses, and malfunctioning equipment, as well as construction vehicle injuries. Nix Patterson has extensive experience ensuring oil and gas companies are held responsible for their actions.

Sexual Abuse

It is horrible to contemplate, but many children and young adults have been sexually or physically abused in their houses of worship by people in positions of authority that they trusted. Nix Patterson has a robust practice that safeguards the rights of children and adults who have been sexually or physically violated. Our attorneys are dedicated to restoring our clients’ lives in Las Cruces and nationwide and will not allow the church and its staff to ignore these serious matters.

Catastrophic Injury

Personal injuries can be traumatic, but all too often they are catastrophic, leaving the victim severely disfigured, with limited mobility, or with other long-term injuries that will affect them for the rest of their lives. If you’ve been seriously injured, you need a lawyer who understands what you’re going through and has the necessary skills to fight for you in the courtroom.

Dangerous Drug and Medical Device Litigation

Thousands of people are injured annually by defective medical devices and prescription drugs. Nix Patterson has a team of skilled mass tort attorneys who represent those who have been hurt by dangerous medical devices, surgical malpractice, and botched medical treatments.

Some of these cases can involve hundreds or even thousands of victims. That is why they are often consolidated into a solitary case before one judge. The judge selects a steering committee to handle the many claims of people killed or injured. Our attorneys have participated in steering committee leadership in many drug and device lawsuits with successful outcomes.

Commercial Litigation

Securities Litigation and Portfolio Monitoring

Nix Patterson represents private and public investors in corporate governance and securities fraud lawsuits. These cases usually involve individuals or institutions who have lost investment funds due to a corporation’s fraud or stock manipulation. Our firm has the resources to handle complex corporate governance and securities cases, from which other firms often walk away.

Intellectual Property

Nix Patterson has assisted many individuals and small companies in recovering large settlements in compensation for their intellectual property losses and can do the same for Las Cruces residents. We have experience handling complicated intellectual property cases nationwide and have obtained millions in settlements for our clients.

Class Action Lawsuits

One of the most common and challenging legal areas Nix Patterson handles is class action lawsuits. Our firm maintains a solid national class action legal practice that safeguards the rights of consumers, including oil and gas royalty owners and insurance policyholders. While these cases are often expensive and hard-fought, Nix Patterson has the resources and expertise to take on these cases and win large compensation packages.

Whistleblower and False Claim Act Litigation

Nix Patterson employs many attorneys and staff who prosecute whistleblower and False Claims Act (FCA) claims on behalf of federal, state, and municipal employees. The FCA allows private individuals to blow the whistle on entities and individuals who engage in fraud on the government to enrich themselves. This is often referred to as “qui tam” litigation.

Our law firm has represented clients in many industries, including finance, banking, healthcare, oil and gas, accounting, and more. Our experience in FCA litigation and a strong record of working alongside government officials to achieve case success has made our firm a top choice for FCA and whistleblower litigation in the United States.

Governmental and Sovereign Representation

Our attorneys have often represented states, counties, cities, and other sovereigns seeking to gain monetary damages. Nix Patterson possesses the legal experience and knowledge to represent these government entities in often complex litigation.
