A highly rated trial lawyer with over 26 years of legal experience, Mr. Valle has achieved unprecedented success advocating for the rights and entitlements of individuals and families adversely affected by someone else's negligence or wrongdoing.

Serving clients throughout New Mexico, Mr. Valle handles all types of personal injury and wrongful death claims, and he maintains a particular focus on claims arising from medical malpractice and defective products. Effective at holding insurance providers accountable, he has extensive experience with cases involving insurance bad faith claims and recovering the full amount of compensation and benefits to which his clients are entitled.

In addition, Mr. Valle also devotes a portion of his practice to general business litigation, construction defect claims and complex class action litigation. Early in his legal career, he served as a criminal defense attorney, and he found that he regularly represented the needs of plaintiff injury victims as well. He joined the Carter & Valle Law Firm in 2006.

He obtained his Juris Doctor in 1991, and the State Bar of New Mexico admitted him to practice that same year. He is also admitted to practice in Texas as well as before the U.S. District Court for the District of New Mexico and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 10th Circuit.

Highly active in his legal community, Mr. Valle is the former director of the appellate practice section for the State Bar of New Mexico, and he also serves on the New Mexico Medical Review Commission. He is a member of several local, state and national bar associations, and he gives back to his local community through his pro bono work and service to Counseling Associates, a provider of mental health care.
