Professional Legal Services

Through our unwavering tenacity and determination, Nix Patterson has earned a reputation as a top Rio Rancho law firm in injury and commercial litigation.

Injury Litigation

Our Rio Rancho, N.M., law firm handles various personal injury cases, helping residents in the following areas:

Truck Wrecks

Picture this: One minute, you are driving on a Rio Rancho road, and the next, a truck has T-boned your vehicle, leaving you unconscious and seriously injured. How would you fare if you were out of work for weeks, or even months, with medical bills piling up?Unfortunately, this scenario happens every day on our roads, and the negligence of drivers contributes to most of these preventable accidents. Actions like texting while driving, disregarding hours of service regulations, and speeding endanger the safety of other road users.

If you have been a victim, you need a team of capable truck accident injury lawyers to handle your case, and Nix Patterson is here to help.

Oil Field Accidents

Oil drilling is an important part of New Mexico’s economic infrastructure, but it’s also one of its most dangerous professions. For many oil field workers, this line of work has left them permanently injured, often unable to resume work.

Even with the right safety precautions in place, you can’t be certain the machinery won’t fail or that coworkers have the necessary skills to prevent dangerous conditions. This puts employees at constant risk of oil field accidents such as pipeline blowouts, equipment malfunctions, explosions, fires, drilling injuries, and more.

Following the aftermath of a severe injury, it’s best to work with a lawyer who not only understands your situation but has experience in this field. Insurance companies are especially hesitant about approving claims for these injuries, but the right representation will help you negotiate your claim or take the fight to the courtroom if need be.

Dangerous Drugs and Medical Devices

When a defective or dangerous drug or medical device injures you or makes you ill, you can file a product liability claim against the manufacturer, supplier, distributor, retailer, or other parties involved in releasing the product into the consumer market.

Even if a product has been recalled, these cases tend to be time-consuming. Moreover, the thought of confronting the big pharmaceutical companies may seem incredibly intimidating. But with the dangerous drug and medical devices team at Nix Patterson, rest assured that no case or company is too big. We will fight tirelessly to get you the justice you deserve.

Catastrophic Injury

If you’ve sustained an injury or illness that incapacitates you for an extended period of time, forcing you to stay out of work and lose income, you likely need to seek counsel from an experienced catastrophic injury lawyer in Rio Rancho. Some of the injury cases that Nix Patterson handles include internal organ damage, burns, spinal cord injuries, fractures, traumatic brain injuries, and amputations.

Sexual Abuse

Regrettably, many children and teenagers are sexually abused by people they trust. While it’s unimaginable to think that someone could prey on the vulnerable, it does happen, and the experienced sexual abuse lawyers at Nix Patterson are always ready to prosecute such cases to the fullest extent of the law.

Commercial Litigation

In this ever-changing world, Nix Patterson has become an industry leader, adopting a contingency fee model for companies that wish to protect or recover their corporate assets. Some of our popular practices in this domain include:

Antitrust Litigation

Antitrust litigation can be a complex and challenging field of law, but it’s one that’s essential for protecting competition and ensuring fair trade practices.

Nix Patterson has a team of seasoned lawyers specializing in antitrust litigation and helping businesses protect their rights and interests. Whether you’re facing an investigation by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), a lawsuit alleging anti-competitive behavior, or any other antitrust-related issue, we can help.

From negotiating settlements to representing you in court, Nix Patterson’s antitrust lawyers are committed to providing the highest quality legal representation and achieving the best possible outcome for your case.

Intellectual Property Infringement

Intellectual property infringement is a serious issue that can significantly impact businesses and individuals. Having been in the industry for decades, we understand the importance of protecting your valuable intellectual property, and we’re always available if you’re facing an infringement issue.

Whether it is trademark or copyright infringement, trade secret misappropriation, or any other IP matter, our seasoned lawyers will be able to handle all aspects of intellectual property law.

We have a proven record of success in representing clients in IP infringement cases, and one of our effective methods involves working closely with you to understand the specific details of your case, followed by developing a customized strategy to help you protect your rights and interests.

Class Actions

Class action cases streamline legal processes. Rather than individual plaintiffs filing hundreds of cases against the same defendant, such large groups collectively form a “class” to sue the defendant. Nix Patterson is renowned for handling high-profile class action cases, including one against the “Big Three” accounting firms for overcharging their clients while receiving back-end rebates, commissions, and incentives.

Whistleblower and False Claims Act Litigation

If you have concerns about your employer’s or any other person’s or entity’s business practices and you believe they are engaging in fraud, you can file a “qui tam” or “whistleblower” claim against them. With the help of our lawyers, you can prove that your employer is fraudulently billing the state or federal government, offering kickbacks, or making suspicious payments to third parties.

Whistleblower cases are extremely unique and complex. They require an in-depth understanding of federal statutes, including the False Claims Act, as well as experience working with state and federal governments and courts. And that’s where Nix Patterson comes in.

Governmental and Sovereign Representation

Nix Patterson represents state-owned entities and governments in lawsuits, helping them recover compensation for incurred damages. The legal team at our Rio Rancho law firm understands how politics, public relations, and policy issues affect these types of cases. In one of our most recent cases, we won an opioid litigation case in Oklahoma against Johnson & Johnson and its subsidiary Janssen. The judge — Thad Balkman — ordered the defendant to pay $572,102,028 to remedy the disastrous public nuisance.

Securities and Portfolio Monitoring

Market losses are inevitable. However, if another party knowingly executes trades that would lead to losses, they can be held liable for your losses. Our Rio Rancho law firm represents both private and public investors in securities litigation involving stock manipulation and fraud. We have the resources, skills, and experience to represent you in any type of securities litigation, including a lawsuit against your broker, a shareholder’s derivative action, or a class action lawsuit.

Insurance Disputes

Catastrophic weather events including winter storms, wildfires, and heavy winds can cause serious and widespread damage to Rio Rancho homes. Homeowners’ insurance is supposed to provide you with peace of mind when these disasters strike. Unfortunately, insurance companies often look for ways to deny and low-ball claims in these circumstances. If you are worried your insurance company isn’t handling your claim fairly, Nix Patterson can help.

Nix Patterson is experienced in representing policyholders across the country taking on the largest insurance companies. We know the tricks and excuses insurers rely on to deny you the full compensation you deserve to repair your home to its pre-loss condition.
