Attorney Profile

As the founding partner of Curtis & Lucero in Albuquerque, New Mexico, Lisa K. Curtis has worked on behalf of hundreds of personal injury victims throughout the state of New Mexico for two decades. During the past 10 years, she has primarily focused on medical malpractice litigation, but she has also represented plaintiffs in matters involving motor vehicle accidents, product liability, bad faith insurance practices, Fair Labor Standards Act violations and sexual abuse cases involving children. Among the many groundbreaking cases she has been involved in is a New Mexico Supreme Court decision imposing a requirement on home health care agencies to perform background checks on prospective employees.

After receiving a Bachelor of Arts in criminal justice from the University of New Mexico, Ms. Curtis went on to attend the University of New Mexico School of Law, where she was awarded her Juris Doctor in 1993 and was honored with the Tort Scholar Award. Admitted to practice in New Mexico, she is also admitted to practice before the U.S. District Court for the District of New Mexico and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 10th Circuit. Listed in The Best Lawyers in America*, she has also been named to The National Trial Lawyers: Top 100.

Ms. Curtis is the trustee of the LK Curtis Children's Fund, which supports the protection and education of New Mexico's children by seeking out programs that have the same goal in mind. A past president of the New Mexico Trial Lawyers Association, she has also taught Advanced Trial Evidence as an adjunct professor at the University of New Mexico School of Law and currently serves on the Committee on the Judiciary of the State Bar of New Mexico.
