Based in Albuquerque, New Mexico, the Law Office of Matthew Vance, P.C., is a law firm committed to fighting for real people hurt or harmed by the careless or reckless conduct of others. It takes just a few seconds for an accident or incident to happen, but it can take years for a victim to recover from the physical and emotional harm suffered due to someone else’s careless or reckless conduct. A tragic sudden death or catastrophic injuries can result from avoidable accidents caused by negligence. Our firm fights for you - to hold the negligent and reckless responsible for their actions and accountable for the damages they cause you and your family.

Matt Vance was born and raised in Santa Fe. He is committed to New Mexico and the people throughout New Mexico.

I grew up here. My family is here. My friends are here. My wife and I are raising our son here. This is my community. I am committed to making my community a better and safer place. I do that in many ways, but one way is through the work I do - holding others responsible for their actions when they are unwilling to do so on their own.
---- Matt Vance

We have litigated thousands of cases and recovered millions of dollars in damages for our clients. We don’t take every case and not every case is worth millions, but we have the knowledge, confidence and ability to help you recover the most you are entitled to recover for the harms and losses caused to you by the wrongful conduct of someone else or a bad company putting profits ahead of people and safety.

We know what matters most to you -YOUR CASE- no matter how “big” or “small.” It’s your case. It may be your only case; we get that. We will fight for you!

In the event of no recovery at the completion of representation, Attorney shall be paid no fees whatsoever. Put another way, “No recovery, No fee”.
