We Draw Strength From Our Diversity

Creating an inclusive and diverse workplace is our mission. We believe this law firm diversity fuels creativity and allows us to achieve outstanding results in and out of the courtroom.

We Are Inclusive

Reflecting Our Values in the Workplace

At Tyson & Mendes, we actively recruit, develop, and retain employees from all backgrounds. We know seeking out diverse age groups, races, ethnicities, genders, and identities adds business value and attracts and retains top talent. 

Diversity is one of the ways we reflect our value of “justice for all.” Tyson & Mendes is committed to do what is right for our team members, our clients, our profession, and the world we live in. We must all succeed and grow together.

We take pride in our mission to become one of the most diverse law firms and continue to implement new initiatives to catalyze such growth.

Best Law Firm for Female Attorneys

We pride ourselves in being recognized as one of the best law firms for female attorneys in the United States, and our partnership process continues to make the recruitment and retainment of female lawyers a priority.

As a result of these efforts, approximately 50% of our 150-plus attorneys nationwide are women. Additionally, women make up 50% of our equity partnership. This diversity in gender representation establishes us as a leader in the industry for female attorneys.

Best Law Firm for Minority Attorneys

While the legal industry as a whole has struggled to diversify its ranks, our success in recruiting and retaining attorneys from diverse backgrounds has garnered national recognition.  

We participate in various national and statewide programs such as the California Minority Counsel Program, which provides attorneys of differing ethnicities opportunities for business and professional development.  Our involvement in these programs brings attorneys of all races together to strengthen diversity and inclusion within the legal field across the nation.

Further, our internal Diversity and Inclusion Committee collaborates with our HR and Recruiting departments to ensure we are seeking out, working to retain, and promoting diverse talent.  With feedback from our Committee, we continue to challenge ourselves to support the needs of our diverse team members.

A Recognized Leader of Diversity

Each year we are pleased to see our firm recognized as a true leader of inclusion and diversity. We are proud of the recognition we receive from our team, clients, and professional organizations.
