Rodey lawyers have a distinguished history of trying and winning jury and non-jury cases in all of New Mexico’s state and federal courts.
We have a reputation of successfully arguing cases on appeal in the state and federal systems. We work with our clients to achieve the best possible settlement when a resolution short of trial is appropriate. We always seek to obtain the very best results for our clients at every stage of the legal process.
Upon opening a case, we evaluate what is at stake. With the help of the client, we determine an appropriate staffing level for the matter. We draw upon the extensive experience and backgrounds of our seasoned trial lawyers and our associates to ensure that a client facing litigation receives high quality, cost-effective legal services in a timely fashion.
When litigation is not the best answer for our clients, we advocate alternative dispute resolution. We have successfully structured a mediation, arbitration, mini trial or summary jury trial to resolve a case before incurring the expense of discovery or trial. Many of our lawyers are trained in ADR, and are frequently retained as arbitrators and mediators.
