Do you care about justice for all?
Do you think greed is not good?
Do you believe equality applies to all citizens, including corporate citizens?
Do right and wrong matter to you?
Do you cringe when a jury awards millions of dollars to a plaintiff who exaggerates and inflates claims?
Are you ready to right these wrongs?

If so, please consider joining the defense firm the plaintiffs’ bar loves to hate.
Join Tyson & Mendes, the defense firm that fought and won the multi-billion dollar Howell v. Hamilton Meats decision and continues to fight every day in courtrooms throughout California and the West!

Hamilton Meats case before the California Supreme Court on the “billed vs. paid” medical expense issue, saving defendants and the insurance industry $10+ billion a year.

Tyson & Mendes always needs attorneys, despite enjoying nearly zero turnover. With offices in San Diego, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Riverside, CA; Phoenix, AZ; Las Vegas, NV; Seattle, WA; and Ft. Lauderdale, FL, we handle litigation throughout all of California, Arizona, Nevada, and Washington.
