Attorney Marshall Neel

A 2010 graduate of the University of New Mexico School of Law, I bring many years of experience in business, banking, and entrepreneurship in addition to my legal education; it makes for real world experience in how people and the law intersect on a day-to-day basis.

Like many other people, in business and in life, I faced many situations when I could have benefitted from legal counsel but could not afford it. I learned the hard way that oftentimes, just one little tidbit of information, had I known, would have resulted in a much better outcome.

I'm here today to give you that information so that you have better outcomes.

Musings about Lawyers and the Law!

A person who represents himself has a fool for a client.

A famous quote from Abraham Lincoln

Justice must be blind to the hardness or softness of a man's hands, as well as to the leanness or fatness of his pocketbook.

A famous quote from B.C. Forbes , Scottish born American Editor and Founder of Forbes Magazine.

To me, a lawyer is basically the person that knows the rules of the country. We are all throwing the dice, playing the game, moving our pieces around the board, but if there is a problem, the lawyer is the only person who has read the inside of the top of the box.

A famous quote from Jerry Seinfeld

The Idea in the legal community that 'access to justice' is denied to Americans only on the basis of low income or old age ignores the greater part of us.

A famous quote from Marshall Neel , Attorney and Counselor at Law

A verbal contract isn't worth the paper it's printed on.

A famous quote from Sam Goldwyn
