    I needed a legal opinion on a purchase agreement. I called at least 10 different attorneys, most of which never returned my calls. The three that I did manage to speak with did not have time for an appointment. Mr. Wood, of Prince, Schmidt, Baca & Wood, was the only attorney that took the time to give me a legal opinion on the contract. Mr. Wood was very thorough and professional. I highly recommend Mr. Wood for any and all of your legal needs.

  • The Law firm Prince, Schmidt, Baca & Woods, LLP in my opinion has the best Lawyers in New Mexico. From the moment they took my case until it was finished, they were very professional, kind, thoughtful, and diligent. When I had questions, they were very respectful, and courteous. They went out of their way to accommodate me. They made me feel like my case was top priority, and worked hard at getting it resolved. I highly recommend this law firm. If the need ever arises where I need a Lawyer again I will definitely contact them. Thank you Maria, Johnathan, and Megan

    I had a situation with a landlord on Canyon Rd who had kept my deposit, despite a verbal agreement to break my lease early. My reason for doing so was based on his inability to make the necessary repairs promised. And he had not even itemized the requisite forms, as is legal. Attorney Jonathan Woods at Prince, Schmidt, Korte, & Baca noticed this and, without having to go to court, brokered a settlement between myself and my former landlord that was reasonable and fair - and in a matter of weeks. I cannot recommend him and his firm highly enough and intend to retain Jonathan's services if any other legal matters come up in the future!

    Great service and expertise. Megan in particular really walked me though a complicated situation and truly maximized the settlement amount. The entire process was transparent, fair and very comprehensive. This was my such first experience with a personal injury firm and I cannot conceive of it having gone more smoothly.

  • I recently have been going through a settlement dealing with an insurance company that I’d rather not name. This insurance company made everything very stressful and made everything very unreasonable. The amazing staff here have helped me deal with the insurance company seamlessly and are helping me deal with the issues every day that I deal with from this accident. It’s been such a wonderful experience to have these people by my side through this time. I highly recommend that if you’re looking for someone to help you out in a personal injury case that this is by far the best place that you could visit in Santa Fe.
