Forbes & Forbes are attorneys that have been practicing law together since 1989. Stewart Forbes has been helping personal injury clients since 1971. We have one compelling mission in serving you: to deliver success every time with your needs first — always. As a former chair, and former members of the local grievance committee, we have seen first hand the importance of maintaining an ethical legal practice, whether assisting clients with estate planning, personal injury, probate or business law. Contact us today if you’re in need of legal assistance involving these areas of practice in the El Paso, TX and Las Cruces, NM areas.

If you need an attorney, there has likely been an unfortunate set of circumstances in your life, from personal injury to a possible death requiring estate planning. Before you decide which attorney you would like to represent you, we invite you to come and sit down with a senior partner of our law firm. We want to hear your story, and be a part of your solution, whether you need a personal injury attorney, an estate lawyer or business law attorney. Serving El Paso, Las Cruses and surrounding areas.

As an attorney, I believe it is my ethical obligation to meet with every potential client face to face. If they came to me for help, it is the least I can do to make time to sit down with them to discuss their concerns.
