Law Offices of Matthew Vance, P.C.


The Law Office of Matthew Vance, P.C., based in Albuquerque, is a law firm committed to fighting for people hurt or harmed by the careless or reckless conduct of others. We represent everyday people that have been hurt or harmed by the negligence 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. 

Catastrophic injuries can result from avoidable accidents caused by negligence, such as car, truck, and other motor vehicle wreck. When those collisions involve commercial vehicles – semi-trucks or “big rigs” – the sheer size of those massive vehicles can turn a minor crash into a major crash with serious, life-altering injuries. If you or a loved one has been involved in any vehicle accident, car crash, or other incident, contact Matt Vance for information and help.
