Investing in you:

Of course, it is not only our successful trial outcomes that attract the top attorneys in the country to our firm. In addition to our outstanding legal work, Tyson & Mendes takes an innovative approach to law firm management that invests wholly in our employees. From our specialized internal training program on our proven defense methods, to clear paths to leadership and partnership, our firm provides the professional development resources and tools needed for attorneys to make significant advancements in their careers. All while building their own brands and becoming sought-after experts in their respective fields.

Finding balance:

We are also strong advocates for work-life integration. We recognize the importance of managing stress at the individual level, especially within the highly energized and competitive legal industry. That is why we offer many forms of employee support, including student loan repayment assistance, resources for mental wellness, and numerous firmwide social outings to bond with colleagues and build camaraderie.

Additionally, our Women’s Initiative, Young Professionals Group, and Diversity and Inclusion Initiatives support a welcoming culture of inclusiveness that celebrates the individuality of everyone on our team.

Employment Benefits:

Our commitment to the good health of our team (both financial and physical) is reflected in our generous and competitive benefits package. We are proud to be one of the first law firms to offer a student loan assistance program for our attorneys, contributing thousands to participating attorneys’ principal balances and allowing them to cut years off of their loan repayment periods.  In addition, we offer a guaranteed (yes, guaranteed) bonus structure for attorneys and paralegals, a variety of attractive healthcare plans (some at no cost to the employee), 401k matching, paid parental leave, and a flexible vacation policy for attorneys.
