James Mendel Litigation Attorney Seattle Portland

James Mendel

Partner

James Mendel is a graduate of Brandeis University and New York Law School and is licensed to practice law in New York and Washington. His civil litigation practice primarily focuses on defending automobile liability and UM/UIM, premise liability, construction injury, and timber trespass matters. A secondary focus is conducting EUOs, PIP arbitrations, HOA litigation, and providing coverage opinions for personal lines policies.  As the number of cases that result in jury trials has continued to decrease over the last few decades, James is nearing a rare milestone for trial attorneys, which is the completion of over 100 jury trials to verdict. Colleagues and opposing counsel regularly seek his opinion regarding trial procedure and strategy.

Personal

James is an avid biker and is often seen in bike clothing around town when not in a well-worn and old-fashioned (“baggy”) suit for court hearings and client meetings.
