Biography

Thomas Banner has extensive experience representing both public and private sector interests in litigation before judges, juries and administrative tribunals throughout New Mexico.

For roughly half of his career, Mr. Banner represented the people of New Mexico as a government attorney: he served first as an Assistant District Attorney prosecuting criminal cases; he went on to advocate for the public's interests in utility and insurance rate-making proceedings; most recently, he served as prosecutor for the New Mexico Medical Board in licensing and disciplinary cases.

Now in private practice, Mr. Banner is continuing his successful litigation practice offering counseling and advice to individuals and businesses concerning real estate, probate, estate planning, personal injury and administrative law.

From 2020 until 2023, Mr. Banner operated a local title insurance company providing real estate settlement services and title insurance products in Santa Fe County, New Mexico.

Mr. Banner is admitted to practice in the following courts: New Mexico state courts (2006); New Mexico Federal District Court (2008); District of Columbia (2008); and U.S. Supreme Court (2010).
