New Mexico Medical Malpractice Attorney

If you’ve sought medical treatment for an injury or illness, only to have your health deteriorate because of the carelessness or negligence of a medical professional, you want an experienced, knowledgeable and capable lawyer to help you pursue damages for all your losses. Medical malpractice claims can be complex, and the losses can be substantial and long-lasting. You want an attorney who has successfully helped others in similar circumstances. You want Buchanan Law.

A past personal injury victim herself, attorney Buchanan can relate to the stress, anxiety and uncertainty you are experiencing. She knows how a personal injury can change everything. She’s also been a defense lawyer in personal injury claims. That helps her anticipate and prepare for the strategies and tactics insurance companies use in personal injury litigation.

Deena Buchanan brings extensive trial experience to her personal injury practice. She’s been lead counsel on a number of multi-million dollar injury claims, including wrongful death claims and serious and catastrophic loss. She’s known and respected by clients, judges and opposing counsel for her poise and composure in even the most difficult situations.
