About Our Firm

Park and VanDijk officially opened their doors in 2005 after an almost 20 year old vision took shape. It all started when Eric and Hans met in law school at the University of Nebraska. The two quickly became friends as each of them determined they were both grounded, hard-working individuals who had a desire to one day return and work to their home state of New Mexico. In between exams and working to pay for law school, the two often talked about opening a practice together. Over the years, they slowly developed a plan to serve the community while enjoying the unique life provided by New Mexico's diverse culture and landscape.

Their dream temporarily came to an end after graduation as both Eric and Hans accepted jobs at large law firms. The draw of experience combined with higher salaries was too much for young passionate graduates who desired to make a difference and pay off their school loans.

The years passed and both Eric and Hans prospered within their respective firms. Then an illness of a common friend in New Mexico brought the two back to the land of enchantment. While enjoying a meal of green chile enchiladas, they reminisced on their college days and their desire to move back to New Mexico. The discussion piqued their interest in their old idea of opening a firm in Albuquerque. The discussion spawned action and two quickly began discussing the idea with their families and putting together a business plan.

Then in May of 2005, the long hours of planning came to fruition when Park and VanDijk opened their doors. Eric and Hans are proud of the law firm they have built and take pride in the service they provide to their community. Now with over 1500 clients and 1800 cases handled, Park and VanDijk has established itself as one of the top law firms in the state. Not to mention they were recently awarded the prestigious Gustov R. Erickson service award for their pro bono charity work.

The years have passed, but Eric and Hans’s commitment to upholding the law and providing for the community hasn’t’ changed. If you are ever in need of legal services or advice, stop by and you will soon understand what makes Park and VanDijk special.
