Ian Bertschausen, Personal Injury Attorney
Originally from Appleton, Wisconsin, I attended Wagner College in Staten Island, New York, where I graduated summa cum laude with a B.A. in Government & Politics and a minor in history. During my time as an undergraduate, I discovered my passion for advocacy and giving voice to those in need through volunteer work with Generation Citizen, a program in which college students teach civics courses at local underrepresented high schools to help make real change in their communities. Drawing on that passion, I attended the University of Miami School of Law, where I graduated magna cum laude. While in law school, I received multiple Dean’s Certificate of Achievement Awards for academic success, served as a tutor for first-year law students, and served as an editor for the University of Miami Inter-American Law Review. I followed my passion for advocacy and helping vulnerable populations through participation in the Miami Public Interest Scholars Program, Children & Youth Law Clinic, and completing the HOPE Pro Bono Challenge.
Following graduation from law school, I worked as an Attorney Advisor with the Social Security Administration handling disability appeals cases. I worked for one year in Baltimore, Maryland before relocating to New Mexico in the summer of 2019. I am licensed to practice law in the states of Florida and New Mexico.
I am thrilled to be a part of the Parnall Law team, bringing my passion for the law, advocacy, and improving the lives of those in need. In my free time, I enjoy scuba diving, taking in all of the natural beauty New Mexico has to offer, home renovation projects, collecting baseball caps, and spending quality time with my girlfriend, Kari, and our dog, Tucker.
