What we do
The Valdez Team works with clients primarily in San Diego, Los Angeles and Las Vegas, Nevada - with additional clients around the nation. Our team focuses on settlement planning & producing Structured Settlements for personal injury, medical malpractice, elder abuse, workers' compensation, product liability, mass torts, and construction defect cases. In addition, we also have the ability to create Structured Settlements for non-physical injury cases and attorney fees.

We represented a young mother on a medical malpractice case that resulted in the need for a Structured Settlement. For that we got Manny Valdez and Manuel Valdez Sr. from The Valdez Team at Ringler involved to start working on the Structured Settlement. They attended the mediation to get real-time calculations based on the net recovery to the client through the rest of the client’s life. They provide a level of comfort by providing the right information and explain complex items to the client (i.e. what an Annuity is, why it is important to have adjustments for cost of living increases, etc.) Ultimately our clients feel much more comfortable to resolve the case because the Mannys were involved.
While working on a personal injury case that resulted in a catastrophic injury with lifetime disability, I was tasked with a goal to come up with a game plan that provided care for the rest of my client’s life. Manny Valdez was able to provide the best Structured Settlement plan for him and his family. I was very happy with Mannys desire and willingness to be available for consultations. He took the time to sit down with our client and genuinely see them as people; he truly cares for their needs.
We had the unfortunate pleasure of representing a client who had suffered a catastrophic event at work, resulting in a lifetime disability. It was important to ensure that the client had enough funds set aside to afford the care needed for the rest of their life. After research, we determined that the best way to protect, grow, and secure the client’s money was to purchase an Annuity through Manny Valdez at Ringler. I’ve been in practice for 20 years and my relationship with The Valdez Team at Ringler goes back for approximately 16 years, in which they have continued to exceed our expectations with regard to their performance, by meeting the needs of our clients.
I needed to set up a Structured Settlement for a $1.9 M case, so I contacted Manny Valdez to set up all the paperwork and annuities to allow the Structured Settlement to occur. My client was able to keep all of his money in a special needs trust while retaining all of the benefits that he had. I also did a Structured Settlement on my attorneys fees through them. I will strongly recommend Manny Valdez at Ringler when you need a structured settlement.
We represent people in catastrophic injury cases. I had three cases that I brought the Mannys in on. All three involved traumatic injuries, involving young men with bright ideas on managing their money. The Mannys get involved and they look at what the clients’ needs are. They take that money and put it in something that is protected to ensure that the family is going to have money for as long as they are going to need it. Manuel Valdez Sr. and Manny Valdez Jr. stepped in on all three cases; they both talked to my clients and explained the benefits of a Structured Settlement. After my clients talked to the Mannys, the clients came back to me and they said, ‘Nick you were right’ - so they made the decision to move forward with a Structured Settlement for their money. The Mannys took care of my clients.
