Gathings Law Firm works with you to take a thorough and compassionate approach to your case to get the right results. We handle cases in the following practice areas:

Personal injury

Car or truck accident. Slip-and-fall. Defective products. There are a number of incidents where the negligence of others results in the award of damages. Medical bills, lost wages, lost future earnings, and when death occurs, for lost support and burial expenses are some of the instances of damages that could possibly be recovered. In serious injury cases, obtaining fair compensation typically requires the skills of an experienced personal injury lawyer, whether it involves negotiating with the insurance company or (if its in your best interest) bringing the case to trial.

Civil litigation

We handle many different types of civil litigation cases, helping clients to recover damages and seek justice. We also take measures to make the legal matter as cost-effective as possible.

Criminal law

A criminal case requires proof beyond a reasonable doubt. This is the highest standard of proof in a court of law. Mr. Gathings vigorously and thoroughly defends against a variety of criminal charges ranging from felonies to misdemeanors. We handle criminal cases in state throughout the legal process and through plea negotiation or trial to verdict. Protecting a client’s rights through effective representation is crucial in cases involving serious criminal charges such as domestic violence, drug crimes, theft, or criminal fraud.


At Gathings Law, we work with you so you understand the severity and consequences of a DWI charge and decide the best strategy for your case. Mr. Gathings has over 25 years of experience successfully defending DWI cases. There are many possible strategies for beating a DWI that are based on the unique circumstances of your case 

License revocation

Understanding the potential consequences and obtaining an experienced DWI lawyer to protect your rights is vital if arrested for DWI. Conviction under pretty stiff Albuquerque DWI laws can lead to incarceration, alcohol screening, community service, and heavy fines. In addition to a criminal case, the Motor Vehicle Division takes administrative action to suspend or revoke your license.
