Legal Representation With The Old-Fashioned Work Ethic

At the Law Office of Dennis Feld, we take the time to understand your critical concerns and to explain, in everyday language, the law that relates to your case. That attentiveness to client needs and attention to detail has allowed the firm to prosper and continue to serve clients in New Mexico for over 22 years.

Attorney Dennis Feld has extensive experience in consumer bankruptcy, personal injury claims, estate planning, elder law, probate, real estate, tax law, divorce and family law, and business law. He is also an experienced mediator.

Mr. Feld’s mediation training was through the American Mediation Institute. He does mediation/facilitation privately or through the 2nd and 13th Judicial District Courts of New Mexico.

For clients who have retained us, Monday evening appointments are available. We make home and hospital visits for elderly shut-ins or injured clients who have difficulty traveling.

We invite you to learn more about our firm and our law practice and then to contact our office to schedule a free initial consultation. We look forward to serving you in any of the following areas:

Personal and Business Bankruptcy: You may have come to this Web site because you are not certain that you are eligible to declare bankruptcy under the new bankruptcy law, which became effective on October 17, 2005. Attorney Feld stays up to date on new developments and is a member the National Association of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys and a licensee of Best Case Solutions, the software company that services over 15,000 bankruptcy attorneys.
Contact us for a free in-house consultation. We are a debt relief agency and help people obtain financial relief by filing for personal bankruptcy under Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code. We can also help you explore other alternatives.

Personal Injury/Accidents: If you have been injured in a motor vehicle (car, SUV, truck or motorcycle) accident, or from a slip-and-fall or trip-and-fall accident due to a dangerous property condition, you may have a claim for financial compensation. Dennis Feld is a former certified and licensed Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) as well as a knowledgeable personal injury attorney.

Estate Planning, Wills, and Trusts: We provide comprehensive estate planning services to help you meet your goals in transferring your assets to the next generation and communicating your wishes regarding medical care.
We offer wills, trusts, financial powers of attorney, advance health care directives (includes the “living wills”), cremation authorization, DNRs, and transfer on death deeds, among others. Although Attorney Feld is not a financial planner, we prepare the legal documentation in conjunction with your financial planner if you have one. Our fees are reasonable and we try to quote a flat fee.

Elder Law: Careful planning today can make caring for an elder tomorrow much easier. Talk to estate planning attorney Dennis Feld about steps you can take to plan for:
Medicaid eligibility for nursing home care
Financial decision-making when an elder would benefit from help with personal finances (financial statutory power of attorney)
Medical decision-making for end-of-life care or incapacity (advance health care directives and durable health care powers of attorney)
Transferring property through a transfer on death deed

Probate and Trust Administration: If you have been named the personal representative (“executor”) for an estate or the trustee of a trust, we can help you through the necessary process in New Mexico. We also handle guardianships, kinship guardianships, and conservatorships. Our fees are reasonable and we try to quote a flat fee.

Real Estate Law: Among a wide array of services, we draft real estate contracts and installment agreements for deeds, resolve land title disputes through quiet title actions, and provide legal help in purchases and sales, real estate closings, and mechanic’s liens. Our fees are reasonable and we try to quote a flat fee.

Tax Law: With an advanced law degree in tax, attorney Feld represents individuals and businesses with tax planning and estate tax issues, with business taxation under New Mexico’s Combined Reporting System (CRS), and with tax issues related to bankruptcy. Our fees are reasonable and we try to quote a flat fee.

Business Start-Up: We assist new companies with business formation services and contract law.

Divorce, Custody, Post-Divorce Matters, and Kinship/Guardianship: Our fees are reasonable, and we try to quote a flat fee for uncontested matters.
To schedule a free in-house initial consultation with New Mexico attorney Dennis Feld, contact our firm today. (There is currently a small fee for divorce consultations.) We have tried telephone conferences, but found that face-to-face no-charge conferences (except see charge for domestic relations consultations) give you better information, and the new bankruptcy code, due to the disclosure requirements, makes it impossible to do telephone conferences.

Knowledgeable Motor Vehicle Accident Attorney Dennis Feld in Rio Rancho, New Mexico

Most motor vehicle accidents are over in seconds. However, those few seconds can cause extensive injuries that affect a person through his or her entire life. If you have been injured in a motor vehicle accident that was caused by someone else’s negligence, you may have grounds upon which to file a lawsuit.

At the Law Office of Dennis Feld in Rio Rancho, New Mexico, attorney Dennis M. Feld provides clients with personalized representation. Mr. Feld is a former certified and licensed emergency medical technician (EMT) as well as a knowledgeable lawyer. His past experience in a medical profession allows him to have a better understanding of your injuries and how they may be affecting your ability to work, move or function as you did before the accident.

For more than 22 years, our law firm has been helping injured people in New Mexico obtain financial recovery after motor vehicle accidents. Below are some of the types of vehicle accidents that we handle. To further discuss your options, contact our firm today.

Car Accident Cases
Even a seemingly minor car accident can cause severe injuries. It is important to enlist the assistance of an experienced attorney for comprehensive protection when dealing with the negligent party, the negligent party’s insurance company and your own insurance company. If you have been injured in an auto accident, our firm can assist you throughout the pursuit of the compensation you deserve for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering and other losses that you may have incurred.

Truck Accidents
Whether it is called an 18-wheeler, semi truck or big rig, a large truck can be a hazard to other drivers on the road. The trucks themselves are extremely heavy, and when they are loaded with cargo, tons of weight can hit a vehicle in a collision. Under the guidance of attorney Dennis Feld, we are dedicated to helping clients get to the root of the accident so we can determine who is at fault for the accident and pursue a case against them. There are many causes of trucking accidents, including driver fatigue (resulting in the driver’s falling asleep at the wheel), improper truck maintenance, speeding, driver negligence and unbalanced or overloaded cargo.

Motorcycle Crashes
As motorcycling rises in popularity, so does the frequency of devastating motorcycle accidents. Many other drivers on the road are not taking the time to notice when motorcycles are close to their vehicles. Unfortunately, motorcycle accidents and collisions tend to result in motorcyclists’ sustaining serious injuries, often more severe than the car drivers’ injuries. Our firm can provide you with experienced legal counsel to preserve your rights after a motorcycle accident.

We also provide advice and guidance to clients who have concerns about accidents that were caused by underinsured or uninsured motorists.
To learn more about your rights and options after a car accident or other motor vehicle accident, contact our firm today. We offer a free in-house consultation with attorney Dennis Feld. During this time, Mr. Feld can review your case and discuss how a resolution may be reached.
