Since 1974, and with 50 years combined experience, Tiwald Law is one of just a few law firms in New Mexico that has won millions of dollars in judgements. We have been successful in handling cases concerning wrongful death, brain injury, electrical injury and other forms of serious injury, sex abuse and assault, civil rights, and workers compensation, among others.

Every case is handled with the utmost in care, commitment, and compassion. We are a small firm with a lot of experience, not a settlement factory firm that advertises on television, radio and billboards.

​We do not impersonally settle large numbers of cases. Instead, we devote the work and time necessary, combined with state-of-the-art techniques and technologies, to prepare each case for settlement or trial so that every client has the very best chance of the maximum financial recovery.

Most cases are settled without going to trial and many settle without the need to file a lawsuit. This is true for all attorneys including at the Tiwald Law Firm. But if we do have to take your case to trial, you need an attorney who is known in the profession for aggressively taking his cases to court and consistently winning.

Founder John Tiwald is admitted in all New Mexico State and Federal Courts. He has an engineering degree in addition to his law degree, providing a superior level of proficiency in cases with highly technical aspects.
