Jack Brant has been defending lawyers and other professionals in malpractice cases since the 1980’s, and Jeannie Hunt has been doing it since joining the firm in 2012. Over the years we have had great success in representing our clients in these matters. We are now recognized as one of the premier professional liability defense firms in New Mexico. We have won, and continue to win, awards, accolades and recognition both individually and as a firm for our professional liability defense work. We are the “pros,” the go-to team in defending professional liability claims.
Representing lawyers in defense of legal malpractice claims constitutes the largest segment of our practice. However, we also have extensive experience, and have had great success, defending other non-medical professionals such as accountants, insurance agents, real estate agents, investment advisors and design professionals.
We have litigated extensively in courts throughout the State of New Mexico, both state and federal. We have a state-wide practice. We have substantial trial experience and we are ready and able to defend our clients through trial if necessary. We also represent our clients on appeal and have had great success in that area as well. We are counsel of record in numerous reported New Mexico cases. We know the courts and we know the law. And although we work efficiently, we are rigorous and relentless in the defense of our clients. If there is a way to prevail, we are likely to find it. And if prevailing is unlikely, we are skilled at getting cases resolved through settlement. We do not like to see any professional sued for malpractice but if it should happen to you, we are available to represent you.
