Experienced Claims Adjusters
Working For Personal Injury Clients
The Justice Project’s team of experienced claims adjusters is managed by attorney and former insurance industry insider Jeffrey S. Trespel. His team works to speed clients’ recovery of money owed them by insurance companies.
The team is prepared to take every case to trial. Most times, however, what our clients really need is an experienced advocate on their side to expedite their claim and get the other party to realize that delay and non-responsiveness is not an option.
Jeffrey S. Trespel
Jeffrey S. Trespel earned a Bachelor of Science in Accounting from the University of Buffalo (SUNY) in 1981. He did post-graduate work in finance at Florida Atlantic University. In 2000, Jeffrey earned his law degree from Florida State University.
Jeffrey worked in the insurance industry for 15 years before entering law school and learned the tactics insurance companies use to delay and evade responsibility or minimize an injured party’s damages.
He joined Will Ferguson & Associates, New Mexico’s largest personal injury law firm in 2004 and has represented injured people in claims involving serious personal injuries, wrongful death, dram-shop actions against irresponsible liquor purveyors, big-rig trucking crashes, and cases in which children have been injured through institutional negligence.
In 2009, Jeffrey and Will Ferguson, the law firm’s managing attorney, recognized the value that a crack team of former insurance claims supervisors and adjusters would offer folks in cases where is clear liability by the other party. The Justice Project of New Mexico was organized as a subsidiary to expeditiously pursue recovery in those cases.
Jeffrey enjoys music with his alt-rock band “Thursday Spin.” He also enjoys hiking, gardening and traveling the globe.
