Firm Overview

Keefe & Associates LLC actively participates in litigation emphasizing insurance policy and claims disputes. This includes personal injury, bad faith insurance and breach of contract cases.

M.J. Keefe is an attorney who practices and teaches other attorneys how to become better trial attorneys. He is a graduate of the Trial Lawyers College, the most advanced trial practice school in the country, and returns for advanced courses each year. In addition, MJ works with lawyers throughout the country on cases and trial skills. In 2012, he taught at a cross examination workshop in California in September, an insurance coverage disputes seminar in December, and an ethics seminar in New Mexico in December. He regularly appears on panels and leads focus groups for trial preparation. MJ has over 25 years of trial practice experience.

The firm concentrates on handling cases that will be tried and offers to try cases that others cannot settle. While most claims settle (over 90%), the key to getting the best settlement is to prepare the case as if it was going to trial, and trying cases when clients are not satisfied with the offers made by opposing parties. We educate our clients about their chances at trial, and go forward when settlement cannot be reached. We believe our clients are prepared for their involvement in their cases. Clients are involved in various aspects of their cases, most notably in deposition, answering written questions from the opponents, attending settlement conferences, and being witnesses at trial. Each client is prepared to perform at each stage of the case. Most clients worry about how they will perform, and about the outcome. At Keefe & Associates we teach and guide the client through the process so that they can feel as comfortable as possible for each role. Their stories are told in the courtroom in an effective and dynamic manner.

Keefe & Associates takes cases to trial that most other attorneys shy away from. We try the most difficult cases, and make the most out of every case. Each trial is an opportunity for a great result for our clients, and an effective team can make all the difference in the outcome. Keefe & Associates creates trial teams for our clients cases; because the creative talents of many are often required to maximize the recovery of the client. Creating trial teams also gives valuable experience to younger attorneys and those without extensive trial experience.

ALBUQUERQUE DWI ACCIDENT ATTORNEY

DWI accidents are too common in New Mexico, and cause many injuries and death. The DWI drivers put everyone in New Mexico at risk. Although they understand the risks to the public, they still drive while intoxicated. When a person is injured by a DWI driver, the person is allowed to ask for punitive damages.

The factors considered by a judge or jury to award punitive damages against a DWI driver are:
- alcohol level of the driver,
- if the driver was sentenced to jail,
- the number of previous arrests or convictions for DWI,
- whether the driver lost his license,
- drove on a suspended license,
- goes into rehabilitation,
- stops drinking,
- the extent of injury,
- whether the injured person has family affected by the injuries or death,
- actions of the DWI driver after the arrest including attempts to pay for medical bills for the injured person.
