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.

The case involved a plaintiff by the name of Toby Morin. Toby had been a paraplegic since the age of 7, and had been used to using wheelchairs for his entire life. Unfortunately, when he got to his mid-thirties, he was using a manual wheelchair and it had malfunctioned, breaking right under him. It turned out that there was a problem with the design of the wheelchair, as well as how it was being maintained by the maintenance company. Toby’s injuries were significant, leading to nerve damage, spasms, mental health issues, and several other. After the defense took the position that Toby was not really injured and nothing was really wrong with the product, Jeremy & his team immediately decided to take the case to trial.
At the end of the day, the jury did not see the case how the defendants did & they came back with a verdict of just under $10 Million. Before the trial, Toby had limited resources. After seeing what the jury was awarding Toby, Jeremy quickly realized and understood that this money needed to last him for the rest of his life.
From working with the Mannys over the years, Jeremy knew that they could help Toby. Jeremy explains that “Manny had an attention to detail that everyone appreciated. He seemed to know what Toby would need before everyone else did. He answered every question that we could throw at him”, making Jeremy feel confident that Toby was going to be taken care of.
We always bring in The Mannys because they have cultural sensitivity and a lot of patience. They spend time with my clients, and they take a great deal of pride & pleasure in helping ensure that people who have suffered harm have a good financial outlook. I wholeheartedly recommend The Mannys to anyone considering a Structured Settlement.
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.
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.
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.
