At Tyson & Mendes, we take pride in a unique set of defense methods developed to apply broadly across all jurisdictions and practice areas. The Tyson & Mendes Method ensures our mission of unparalleled service and unbeatable results is consistently delivered by every member of the firm. This sets us apart from other defense firms.

To further this goal, we developed and implemented the Tyson & Mendes University, a mandatory training program for all of our attorneys and paralegals to teach case handling, trial strategy, and client service according to the Tyson & Mendes Method. Tyson & Mendes University ensures superior representation is guaranteed – not only to clients of one office or practice area – but firm-wide.Regardless of which attorney or office is handling a case, our clients trust they get the best of the best at Tyson & Mendes.
