Flores is a founding partner of Flores Mendez, P.C. who focuses on cases involving personal injury, including wrongful death, 18-wheeler cases, on-the-job injuries, premises liability, dram shop cases and auto collision cases throughout New Mexico, Texas and Arizona. Her mission is to help injured people who are being treated unfairly by insurance companies at a time when they need the help the most. Connie is a lifelong resident of El Paso, Texas who attended the University of Denver and graduated in 2003 with honors from the National Honor Society.

After law school, Connie began her professional legal career at an El Paso-based plaintiff’s personal injury law firm where she had previously been a legal assistant for over eight years prior to going to law school. In 2016, she was a founding partner of Flores, Tawney & Acosta, P.C. in which she was one of the integrate reasons the firm would have four locations throughout the southwest.

Connie’s passion is mentoring teenage parents for them to continue their education. Having her first son at 15 years old, she knows how difficult it is to stay in school. Her mission is to help and support as many teenage parents as possible by sharing her obstacles and how to overcome them.

She strongly believes that when you bless others, blessings will come to you from places you had never imagined.
