I had never been involved in a personal lawsuit prior to contacting Jeffrey Mendelman. I was referred to Jeffrey by a firm my family and I had worked with in the past. When I contacted Jeffrey, I was not at ease! He gladly accepted my case, updated me with realistic answers and approaches as we moved forward. Jeffrey always underpromised and overdelivered. Jeffrey is a very professional attorney and expert in all legal aspects. He has unmatched professionalism, honesty, extensive experience and integrity. Jeffrey provided realistic information and comes up with great solutions. He is EXTREMELY responsive and communicates clearly. He is amazing person and professional, highly recommended him in all matters in particularly civil. Finding yourself in a situation where you need to find legal representation is never great however. I am fortunate we won the case. However, one should consider themselves lucky to be represented by Jeffrey Mendelman. Thank you for all your help.

We were recommended Jeffrey Mendelman by our local attorney since he handles cases in San Francisco. Our first interaction was on the phone where he asked all the right questions to determine the course of action in the pending criminal case. He laid out the payment process and schedule, as well as the likely outcomes of the case. He was reassuring and did not rush the call. We were careful to follow the recommended actions he proposed for us, and in turn he was able to get the case handled in a professional and expeditious manner. This did not mean hat he rushed the process. Neither did he just roll over to the District Attorney’s motions. He did not stop his representation even when the escrow account needed further funding. We are very satisfied in the way he went above and beyond in taking ownership, including handling all aspects of the case. He was very responsive to our concerns and inquiries, even if he could not speak in length at the time. He kept us informed at every st...

Jeff Mendalman was recommended to me by another lawyer, and upon meeting him I wasn't so sure. But after our first day in court, I immediately saw why. He's brilliant, he has an aptitude for understanding how people think and can predict their next move, and he has a very clear understanding of the legal system and the communication to keep me on page. Furthermore, he was willing to meet both my needs of winning the lawsuit and humiliating my offender, in a case against a much more powerful person, and with a lot of gray areas. I highly recommend.
