About the Firm
In Texas and New Mexico, the attorneys at The Perrin Law Firm aggressively pursue cases in which people have been harmed by the negligence of others, including medical or legal professionals, or others in positions of power. It is a bit trite to say we fight for our clients, although we certainly do. Every good lawyer does that. We have the honor of representing people in cases of great and abiding importance to them and we do not fight to boost our own ego, but because of that honor and to obtain the best result we can for our clients. The Perrin Law Firm is listed in the Martindale-Hubbell® Bar Register of Preeminent Lawyers and Doug Perrin is an AV® Preeminent™ Peer Review Rated lawyer by Martindale-Hubbell®. The firm has offices in Dallas and Santa Fe.
The lawyers at The Perrin Law Firm represent clients seeking compensation for harm resulting to them primarily in the following types of cases:
Doug Perrin and Mark Perrin are the partners in the firm. They are brothers, the oldest and youngest children of Les and Elaine Perrin, who were college teachers in Lubbock, Texas for many years. The Perrins have a long-standing commitment to stand up for the underdog, and the focus of The Perrin Law Firm is to try to help people in difficult circumstances solve their problems and find justice.
The practice of law to us is more than just a way to make a living; it is a calling. We believe doctors, hospitals, lawyers, and others in a position of power and trust should be held accountable for their mistakes which cause harm, the effects of which are often felt for a lifetime. We want to help people who have been harmed by the negligence of a professional.
The Perrin Law Firm is committed to helping people who have been hurt because these people – and perhaps you – need representation and legal counsel to obtain fair compensation and to try to make things better. When you engage The Perrin Law Firm, you work with us and our exemplary support staff. We are small, quick, and careful. We do not pass you on to an associate attorney just out of law school. You get the services of experienced and well-respected trial lawyers with a reputation for a high level of legal ability and adherence to ethical standards. Our clients have direct contact with us. We talk to them, listen to them, and keep them informed every step of the way.
At The Perrin Law Firm, we are committed to improving the quality of medical care in this country. One way to do that is to hold doctors and hospitals accountable. We want to help balance the scales to give people harmed by medical malpractice their best chance to make things as right as the system can make them. Our firm has achieved jury verdicts that exceeded the damages caps in New Mexico in multiple cases. Doug Perrin represented the plaintiff in the original case in New Mexico that declared damages cap unconstitutional in the context of dram shop cases.
In Texas, our practice emphasizes not only medical malpractice case but legal malpractice cases as well. As with doctors who are incompetent or greedy or do not pay attention, people are hurt by lawyers who betray their trust. We have been representing clients against lawyers for almost twenty years – long before it became more accepted by the profession.
Although compensation in money is the ultimate goal of the representation in almost all of our cases, it is not the only result we seek. We also hope to help our clients achieve closure and find some sense of satisfaction and some easing of their burden as a result of our having represented them.
Our typical representation in malpractice and personal injury cases is on a contingency fee basis. There is no charge for our initial consultation in such cases.
Call us at (214) 740-4557 to schedule your initial consultation or simply use our contact form to the right to tell us about your injury. You pay us nothing unless we recover for you. We serve clients in New Mexico with a focus on Santa Fe and other communities in northern New Mexico. We also practice in the courts of Texas and can help with medical and legal malpractice cases, personal injury cases, and business and commercial litigation in Texas.
