Ty Wood


Experienced Albuquerque Attorney

One of Ty's favorite quotes is:

“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.”

- Martin Luther King, Jr.

Ty Wood graduated cum laude from the University of New Mexico School of Law in 2014. During law school, Ty served on the Editorial Board of the New Mexico Law Review and worked as a teaching assistant for the law school's first-year legal writing class.

After graduating from law school, Ty joined the Office of the Colorado State Public Defender as a Deputy State Public Defender, where he embraced the Office’s mission of fighting for the rights of the underprivileged.

Ty loved working as a Deputy State Public Defender, but he could not pass up the opportunity to work with his hero, mentor, and father, Jim Wood.

As an attorney with James Wood Law, Ty continues to zealously advocate for the rights of the underprivileged as well as those who have been wronged by corporations, insurance companies, and others.

Ty has been recognized by Super Lawyers as a Rising Star (in both New Mexico and Arizona) in the legal field of Plaintiff's Medical Malpractice for the years 2020, 2021, 2022, and 2023.

Since joining James Wood Law in 2015, Ty has successfully settled countless cases on behalf of his clients worth many millions of dollars.

Ty has also won multiple jury trials, including his most recent trial, in which the jury awarded $23.8 million to his client, who was severely injured as a result of a surgical error.
