I am very happy that I hired Margaret Mendoza. She was professional, hard working, caring, responsive, proactive, and efficient. She returned my phone calls in a timely manner and she always listened carefully to each of my concerns. Margaret made sure that she was thoroughly familiar with my case which involved a lot of convoluted and messy details. She quickly understood what my case was all about and was able to advocate on my behalf without any problem; she was proactive and worked hard on my case; as a result, the charges against me were dropped and there was no trial. Margaret also was flexible on payment terms which I appreciate.

I have know Meg for some time. When a need for an attorney rose, I contacted Meg because of her integrity and work ethic. She did everything and more. I was impressed with her ability to solve the issue with a minimum effort and great professionalism. I highly recommend her as an attorney you can trust to do the very best job for you.

Five months ago I hired Margaret Mendoza's law partner, Lisa Mattern. Both women have many years of experience. Mrs. Mendoza was present for the initial consultation and stood in for Mrs. Matern at one of the hearings. They are familiar with each others cases which is a positive for the client. I felt a connection to both women from the initial meeting. It was obvious they care about their clients. Every step along the way they let you know what is happening by phone and follow up letters. I would not hesitate to hire either Mrs. Mendoza or Mrs. Mattern in the future should a need arise. A client of this law firm truly benefits from the combined knowledge and experience of these two wonderful women. My case will be dismissed at the next hearing thanks to the expert legal representation I received from Mattern & Mendoza , LLP

Margaret was outstanding and caring. She kept me well informed and fought for the best outcome. She had a heavy caseload but still managed to know my case thoroughly. I was clearly told that she may not be able to be at every court date because of the way cases were assigned. Margaret also told me that she would return calls within 48 hours and after hours because it was hard to return calls during the day. She always did call. I never expected an immediate call back because she couldn't when she was in court. I appreciate that she called at night so she could take her time with me.
I understand that she is no longer with Pensanti and Associates. I would not recommend the firm but would recommend her.
