Attorney Trujillo continues to be equally successful in her personal injury law practice. Her career settlement total is in the millions of dollars for her clients. Each client’s potential case is intensely analyzed for liability (fault), damages (actual injuries suffered; both present and future), recovery expectations (money available from all sources to help the injured), and long-term benefit(s) to each client. Whether the injury is the result of an automobile/motorcycle accident, animal attack or by a violation the clients’ Civil Rights it is Attorney Trujillo’s practice to carefully analyze and then provide methodical representation for each client to take them to a largest recovery as is reasonable and possible. She reminds each client that this area of law is not a race to the bank but a walk together that requires time and attention layers of insurance issues, documentation and dedicated commitment by the attorney and her client.
When asked what she enjoys doing when not in her law firm she is quick to describe her love for spending time with her husband and her yellow lab, traveling in their RV, and visiting her daughter in Germany (also an Attorney). She also holds a black belt in Kenpo Karate. Attorney Trujillo enjoyed her 60th birthday this year and believes that with her age and lifelong experience she brings more than a law degree to her clients. She provides them with compassion, purposeful direction, and zealous advocacy.
