About Lisa J. Mendes

“I am a Bay Area native through and through; I support my local teams and am a fan of sporting events: from the San Francisco Giants to the San Jose Sharks, and all the teams in between. With the exception of few years spent in New York, New Jersey and Boston, I have lived here my entire life.  I grew up in Fremont and attended high school at Moreau Catholic High School in Hayward.  In 2003, I obtained my Bachelor’s Degree in Spanish Language and Literature from San Francisco State University.  After obtaining my Bachelor’s, I moved to the east coast for two and a half years to work in Corporate America.  While I loved my life experiences on the east coast, I knew that California, specifically the Bay Area, was my home; I relocated my job back to San Francisco in early 2006.

It was upon my return that I started my Masters Degree in Business Administration.  I was on the fast track with a Fortune 50 company.  While I was working toward my MBA, my father was diagnosed with colon cancer, and my cousin–less than 10 years older than I–was diagnosed with ovarian cancer.  It was then that I realized how short life is, so I followed my passion to do what had always been in my heart, and I went to law school.  I finished my MBA on a Thursday in late August of 2008 and started law school the following Monday.

In law school, I worked a variety of internships, including one with a small criminal defense firm and a few semesters at the San Francisco District Attorney’s Office.  Then I laid the foundation for my practice while working for two different firms before starting my own.

I now take pride in practicing those areas of the law where I can support and help advocate for those who are facing, what may possibly be, the most stressful period of their life.

I look forward to using my education and experience to move my clients beyond this chapter to lead a better life.

If you are looking for an Attorney experienced in Divorce and Civil Harassment and Restraining Orders, please contact me. I look forward to helping you.”
