Francheska Bardacke, Associate – The Spence Law Firm, LLC

*Francheska practices in Albuquerque, New Mexico with the Spence Law Firm NM, LLC.

Born and raised in New Mexico, Francheska attended the University of New Mexico School of Law where she won a place on the National Mock Trial team and a national scholarship to attend legendary Gerry Spence’s Trial Lawyers College in Wyoming. Since then, throughout her career as an attorney, Francheska has been committed to helping people in New Mexico and fighting on their behalf in court. She has tried over 50 criminal trials including 30 jury trials as first chair or on her own.

She is experienced in complex civil and commercial litigation as well as business, corporate, and partnership law, insurance law, employment law, and civil rights law. After her work at the District Attorney’s office, she joined a civil practice doing insurance defense where she rediscovered her passion for helping people who have been injured, mistreated, deprived of their rights and livelihoods, and victimized by corporate greed. In her time representing injured and wronged clients, she has had success in the areas of trucking cases, medical malpractice, wrongful death and catastrophic injury. She is thrilled to circle back to the Spence Law Firm after over a decade and join such a talented and passionate group of lawyers dedicated to obtaining justice for their clients.

Licensed in federal court, she is also a member of the New Mexico Trial Lawyers Association and the American Association of Justice. In her free time she loves to fly-fish, spend time outdoors, and continues to play competitive tennis. She attended Colorado College and Oxford University for her undergraduate work.

“Never be afraid to raise your voice for honesty and truth and compassion against injustice and lying and greed. If people all over the world… would do this, it would change the earth.”
