PERSONAL INJURY LAWYERS WITH AN AGGRESSIVE, COMPLEX TRIAL APPROACH.
Davis Kelin is not a high-volume firm. We put a significant amount of time and resources into every case we accept. This means we can only take the small percentage of cases we review that meet our case selection criteria. The cases we take on generally involve catastrophic injuries, wrongful death, medical malpractice, motor vehicle injury accidents, egregious violations of rights, or are otherwise of significant public importance. We only take cases that we are willing to take to trial because they have been extensively vetted before filing a lawsuit.


As an injury law firm, we have a unique process for trial preparation, throughout which, our hope is that you’ll feel empowered to take a stand, and no longer feel like the victim. Beyond compensation, we are dedicated to litigating injury cases to punish the wrongdoer, or tortfeasor, who would rather ignore these rules to benefit themselves.
Representing Each Client On An Individual Basis


Ben Davis and Zackeree S. Kelin, both personal injury lawyers, partnered up with the intent of representing each client on an individual basis. We are sensitive to the fact that almost nothing compares to what you may be going through, whether you’re a victim, a family member or close friend. Dealing with a personal injury, malpractice or even a wrongful death case is arguably one of life’s most unpleasant experiences. Get the personal attention you deserve, contact us today to schedule your Free Consultation.

If at First You Don't Succeed, Try, Try Again. When trying cases against large corporations and insurance companies, there will be numerous roadblocks. What separates great attorneys from the mediocre attorneys is how they deal with those roadblocks.
"I went to several different attorneys. They didn't want to take 
on the insurance company. When we found Ben Davis, it was a totally 
different story. He wasn't afraid to take on the corporate giants."
If you're seeking a New Mexico wrongful death attorney, it is important to work with someone whom you feel comfortable with and who can be sensitive about the details of your case.
Ben Davis is a hard-working attorney with experienced trial counsel. After litigating for years at a railroad defense and commercial litigation firm, he has developed an affinity for aggressively pursuing relief for those who have been wronged.

Exceeded our expectations at every level
Mr. Davis skillfully handled our case from the start. He spared us from having to deal with an unresponsive insurance company and provided expert guidance every step of the way. He and his staff exhibited compassion as well to my wife who was the injured party, and made an unpleasant situation much easier to bear. I couldn’t be more pleased. I highly recommend Mr. Davis. Thank you. Nathan M.

A Remarkable Attorney who cares
Ben Davis is responsible for giving my life back! Through litigation in a malpractice suit against a firm responsible for me going to prison for 34 years. We settled and the District Court couldn't dismiss the truth.... I now am free after 7 long years and I am married to the most wonderful woman. We at least now have life! There will soon be a book telling the story of this case and Ben's work. Thank you Ben Michael & Mary Soutar

The best choice law firm!
I’ve had a great experience with Mr. Ben Davis and his whole staff. They professionally handled my lawsuit in a very comfortable pace. I believe I got the best results in the midst of everything that was going on with my recovery. Also they did a great job at resolving things while I resided in another state. Things went so well I couldn’t ask for more. Everything you’ve done for me has been a blessing. Thanks a million!

The best of the best!
I live out of state and he still took my case! He even traveled to Texas to take depositions. I am so grateful to this man and his entire firm. Do not bother with other lawyers when you can have the best one in New Mexico.

Awsome experience
On my main case with the dwi, Ben Davis took my case, I didn't know what to expect in the process, he walked me through the whole thing even with the deposition, even with me being in pain, he genuinely cares about his clients, even just right after my first case got settled, I was in another accident for work, first thing I did was email Ben and asked if he be interested in it, needless to say he first asked if I was ok which I was and secondly he did take my case, I am very grateful to Ben and his team that he had working on both my cases, he truly cares about his clients!!!

Highly recommended
I am always going to be grateful to Ben Davis and the rest of the staff at The Davis Law Firm, LLC. In September of 2011 I walked into his offices a person broken by a horrible tragedy and, after my initial consultation, left with a glimmer of hope that my loved one would receive due justice. Finding a place like The Davis Law Firm, LLC, knowing that they weren’t out to get a quick dollar, was a comforting experience, restoring not only my faith in the justice system, but humanity. Throughout the next three-plus years I was not treated as a client or as a case. I was part of the family. We talked about how I was, how my kids were, what work was like – it felt reassuring to know that my best interests were in the hands of such a genuine group of people. A group that I consider newly found friends and family. In addition to winning our case in trial, The Davis Law Firm, LLC are working with the City of Albuquerque to mandate the crime free program for all multi-housing complexes, lowering the chance that anyone else will lose a loved one to violence. If there hard work, persistence, and genuine spirit are any indication, I know in my heart of hearts that they will achieve that goal. Thank you Ben, Jennifer, Mollie and all the other amazing people who saw me through this tribulation. You’ve changed my family’s life and saw that my loved one received justice. I will forever be indebted to you.

Ben Davis was amazing
After we were hit by a drunk driver in New Mexico, the insurance company began trying to take advantage of us. We knew we had to find a lawyer, but we didn’t know where to start. We are very glad we got a recommendation to call Ben Davis. Ben is an extremely good personal injury lawyer. We had a complicated case, and Ben was able to help us clearly understand our rights and the risks of litigation. When we decided to proceed, he proved to be a true advocate for our interests—forcing the insurance company to take their obligations to us seriously. He never pressured us to settle, but when it came time to mediate our case, Ben showed amazing skill as a negotiator, overcoming obstacle after obstacle with the kind of skill and instinct you only find in seasoned attorneys. Ben’s advocacy helped us close the chapter on an horrifying and traumatizing experience in our life so we could move forward. After the crash, the last thing we wanted was a lawsuit, but when it came, we could not have been more happy to have had Ben be the one to help us through it. We highly recommend his services. We'd prefer to remain anonymous, but be assured these are our candid opinions, and we have no relationship with Ben or his law firm. We are just grateful for all his hard work.

Great Experience in a Bad Situation
After several bad encounters with lawyers and courts I had a legal malpractice case and a fear of lawyers. Ben Davis was wonderful. He went above and beyond for me. He was wonderful to work with and made me feel very comfortable. I can highly recommend him.

Ben Davis, Albuquerque NM
I was the driver in a car crash in Albuquerque in December of 2012. The other driver, who ran a red light and was 100% at fault, had minimal insurance and no assets. My wife was quite badly injured and spent 8 days in the hospital. We hired Ben Davis, an attorney in Albuquerque, to represent us in paying our bills and recovering what we could from insurance (both ours and the other driver’s insurance). We clearly could not have handled this ourselves. Reasonable settlements with the insurance companies required quite a detailed knowledge of the law and insurance practices in three jurisdictions (New Mexico, where the crash happened; Washington DC, where we were living at the time; and California, where we now live). Beyond that, they required quite a lot of experience with what a reasonable settlement should look like and how to secure such a settlement. Because our own insurance company originally offered us a very low settlement, we even had to sue them. Ben Davis represented us in that suit and in the subsequent negotiations with our insurance company’s lawyer, and did obtain an appropriate settlement for us. Ben Davis handled all of this with consummate professionalism and expertise. He knew a lot about the law, and had a lot of previous experience with cases like ours. When he didn’t know a particular wrinkle, he researched it carefully. He was on top of the case from beginning to end, answering our inquiries promptly, keeping us informed, meeting required deadlines, dealing with medical care providers and the insurance companies, and in general, just taking the whole mess off our hands. My wife is a lawyer, a litigator actually, and she was very favorably impressed with his knowledge, his crafting of documents (including the lawsuit), and his negotiation skills. If you’re ever in a spot like we found ourselves in, Ben Davis is the one you should turn to. He has our highest recommendation.

Excellent, Hardworking, Compassionate Attorney. Highly Recommend
For the past two years, I have been privileged to have Ben Davis as co-council on my medical malpractice suit. He and his wonderful assistant, Jennifer Byers, worked many, many hours beyond the call of mere duty on my case. Unfortunately, we did not win the first round of the case, but are going forward with an appeal, which means many more hours of hard work. When I didn't understand the law, Ben took the time to explain in everyday language what the legal terminology meant. He realizes that even though he has much experience and several cases going at a time, my case was the only case I had to stew about. He and Jennifer did a quite a bit of handholding as my case progressed, which I deeply appreciated. Additionally, as my trial date moved closer, Ben called in other attorney friends with more or different malpractice experience to look at and help with my case. In short, I feel like Ben and his firm and colleagues did everything they could to bring my case to trial. I highly recommend Ben and his wonderful staff. Lanie

Amazing Attorney
Ben did a fantastic job with my case. He kept me informed and involved throughout. He was personally concerned for my well-being and seeking justice on my behalf. I highly recommend Mr. Davis to anyone who needs a knowledgeable, competent and trustworthy attorney.

Mr. Davis is an amazing attorney. He was able to help my family receive compensation for a matter other attorneys wouldn't even touch. I would recommend him to anyone who needs to find some justice. He is always professional yet understanding. He always took the time to explain the court process and help us prepare. Mr. Davis is exceptionally knowledgeable especially in medical related cases. Truly, he is an honest man and I am totally grateful for the services he provided for my family.

Wrongful Death
I am very fortunate to have Ben Davis on my side. My case has not been settled yet but Ben has been doing everything possible to ensure a positive outcome. His passion and dedication to my case makes me confident that I chose the right lawyer.

accident
Ben did a great job with my case. He was honest through every step, and kept my husband and I informed of new developments as they came up. He is clearly knowledgable, and if he wasn't sure about something he had several experienced resources to draw upon. I was injured badly after being struck by a truck while riding a bicycle and he understood how to work with us while I recovered. He was also able to refer me to a couple of good health practitioners when I didn't know any in a particular field. Ben pursued a settlement in my case when it was appropriate, and advised me if proceeding down a particular legal path was not likely to be fruitful. I think after working with him for a year and a half that I would be comfortable referring anyone to him.

Discrimination at Retail Corporate America
I was wrongfully terminated by my Corp District Manager and I did not know where or how my Case needed to be handled. Once I met George the case got clearer and I was self assured. George was on my Litigation Team for five years and stayed with me from beginning to end. Yes, George won My Case and I will never forget how personal and professional he took my case. Thank you George ! Rob Ruiz New Mexico 03 Jan. 2012

Great Experience
I had a great experience with Ben Davis. He took my case when others had turned it down and guided it towards a favorable and just conclusion. He kept me informed every step of the way and offered knowledgeable advice. He was flexible in how to structure payment and it ended up being a good engagement for the both of us. Highly recommended.

I am not a client of Ben Davis or The Davis Law Firm, LLC - in fact, he is a client of mine. However, in getting to know him, his firm and the history and philosophy behind his practice, I know for a fact that if I am ever injured I can only hope that it's in state of New Mexico, because this is the only guy I want to ever represent me.
