WESLEY C. JACKSON is a native New Mexican who grew up in Albuquerque and is a graduate of Albuquerque High School. During high school, he was involved in an extremely serious car accident that forever changed lives, including his. That experience makes Mr. Jackson unique among attorneys. He understands first-hand how lives can change in an instant, and how important it is to have an experienced attorney to help with the aftermath. An exceptional attorney, Mr. Jackson knows how to try cases. One of his more recent experiences includes a two-week jury trial in which he represented a snowboarder who was permanently paralyzed. The case involved millions of dollars in medical expenses alone. Starting in 2007, and continuing until 2013, Mr. Jackson was involved in a massive construction defect case in which he helped represent over 100 plaintiffs. As part of that case, he successfully argued that an arbitration clause signed by homeowners was so unfair that it was not enforceable under New Mexico law.
