About Devon

Learn Devon’s areas of practice.


Devon M. Lyon was born and raised in Southern California and is never leaving.  After receiving her Bachelors of Science degree from Linfield College in 1998, she attended Whittier Law School.  In 2001, she graduated with a Doctorate of Jurisprudence and became a licensed California attorney. 

In her last two years of law school, Ms. Lyon clerked for a small Plaintiff’s labor and employment firm in Irvine and volunteered for the Orange County Public Defender’s office.  After graduation in 2001, Ms. Lyon joined the law firm of Demler, Armstrong & Rowland in Long Beach where she practiced insurance defense and also assisted with the opening and operation of a law office in Orange County on behalf of a San Francisco based law firm.


In 2007, Ms. Lyon founded Ridout & Lyon, LLP with a partner during which time she focused entirely on the defense of employers in labor and employment related disputes.  In addition to representing several small and medium sized businesses, she was regularly assigned litigation defense matters by several insurance carriers for whom she acted as Employment Practices Liability Insurance panel counsel. 


Combining her years of experience defending employers, in June of 2015, Ms. Lyon founded Lyon Legal – a firm devoted to the representation of both employees and employers in labor and employment related disputes and injured citizens in personal injury actions.  It's good to know how the other side thinks. 

Ms. Lyon has had numerous six figure judgments and settlements on behalf of employees and has successfully assisted employers with litigation prevention and defense. 

In her free time, Ms. Lyon enjoys boating and coaching her daughter’s softball team.  Ms. Lyon is an active volunteer with youth athletics in Long Beach and presently sits on the Executive Board of Los Altos Youth Baseball and Softball.

Devon and her team are phenomenal! She is a true professional and she fought for me every step of the way. I would not want anyone other than Devon in my corner. She knocked it out of the park and I am forever grateful for her & her team.

Couldn’t be happier!
Devon and her team were a pleasure to work with. They were empathetic, followed through with their plan and went above and beyond their duties. Their team was in constant communication with me and made sure to fill me on on any new information as they were getting it.

Hire Devon Lyon!
Hi hired Devon after I was wrongfully terminated. She was devoted to my case and worked hard for a year and took on my prior employer. We were able to settle, which was a huge win for me. It gave me closure in knowing my termination was unjust. I couldn't have asked for a better attorney in my corner and am forever grateful to her and her business.

A Principled and Ethical Advocate Who Fights for Her Clients and Tells it Like It Is
In my professional career, I have worked with many attorneys - most of whom spoke in "legalese" and would take every opportunity to make those "billable hours." While Devon can speak legalese quite well when needed, in discussing my case she spoke directly and in plain English. She wanted the facts so she could advise me based on facts and the relevant law. She made certain my expectations for settlement/judgement were based in facts tempered by her considerable experience and knowledge of the law. I would not hesitate to consult again with Devon if the need arose in the future. She has passion in her heart tempered by a keen mind and thorough knowledge of the law. I felt her fees were reasonable and justified. Want a good attorney by your side as you go up against your employer? Call Devon and make an appointment. She will tell you, candidly, if you have a case. And if you do and she has the opportunity, she will represent you well.

Awesome Consultation
I called Ms. Devon Lyon and she returned my call promptly, after speaking with me, she advised that I send her my information. She reviewed it, and told me at this point her services will render me in the same position with the company's settlement offer. I appreciate her honesty which is rare today. Let's me know all attorneys aren't the same. I would recommend Ms. Lyon to anyone who wants integrity and humility representing them.

This woman is an absolute spitfire and everything an attorney should be. She is knowledgeable, focused, dedicated and sincere. I felt completely comfortable with her on my side and she kept me smiling through what should have been a scary ordeal. I’m for grateful to this woman; the fact that she won my case was just the inevitable icing on the cake.
