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.

I've used Manuel Sr. and his son Manny Valdez for literally a couple of dozen cases both in the construction area as well as major personal injury actions. There are plenty of companies around, but we go to them because of their commitment to our clients, their commitment, to us, their hands-on approach, and frankly more than anything the level of trustworthiness that we have with them. The people that they work with are very reputable as well, and when you are dealing with annuities over a long period of time you want to be working with established companies and that's who they work with. They always want to interact with my clients, on one particular instance they literally flew out to Las Vegas on a Nevada death case and spend half a day with the family, a family whose not sophisticated financially and sat down with them walk them through all of the details of the program, all of the services that they would provide and put them on a place where they felt really understood and had a comfort level going forward with them. I think they are the best out there their skill level, their knowledge level is far superior to the other people, so they are literally the go-to guys.
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.
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.
