    • I do not recommend Joseph Mendoza.
    • I hired Joseph 1-3 years ago.
    • Joseph handled my Divorce / Separation matter.

    I hired him for my divorce. Both he and his paralegal Liz made mistakes in handling my case. This caused me a lot of pain and frustration as well as money to hire another attorney to correct. I paid the Mendoza Law Offices thousands but I was very disappointed in their failure to help correct their mistakes. In my experience they suffer from too much pride and not enough compassion or knowledge to handle a simple case. I strongly suggest you find someone more ethical and with better knowledge.

    • I do not recommend Joseph Mendoza.
    • I hired Joseph more than 3 years ago.
    • Joseph handled my Child Custody matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    Joseph means well but isn't very sharp in the courtroom and visibly gets upset with the judge when overruled. That doesn't help me, the client, very much. I get the sense that he isn't liked much by anyone who works day to day in the courtroom which doesn't give a warm fuzzy. He was given multiple opportunities to cross examine witnesses that had conflicting information that I pointed out over several days' trial and he didn't address any of them when given the chance. I feel like he was very good at paperwork but his court room skills were certainly not impressive. I was hoping he would be quicker on his feet. He's much more expensive than he lets on, too. He waits until 2 days before court and asks for more money each time. That's kind of a bummer when you're desperate for action on his part.
