Albert G. Mendoza

Associate

Albert Mendoza joined Boutin Jones’ litigation team after serving as Deputy District Attorney in the Contra Costa District Attorney’s Office. Shortly after starting with the D.A.’s Office, he was entrusted to serve as lead trial attorney in over a dozen cases, working diligently as a progressive prosecutor to find resolutions that served justice for victims, defendants, and the community. When alternative solutions were exhausted, he took cases to trial and had an overwhelmingly favorable conviction record in the cases he tried. His background in litigation also includes internships at the California Attorney General’s Office, Sacramento District Attorney’s Office, and in private practice as an employment litigator.

“I apply my background as a progressive prosecutor and as an employment litigator to now represent business and real estate clients in complex litigation. I search for creative resolutions to business disputes, but stand ready with an impressive trial record.”

I enjoy the outdoors, from playing tennis in McKinley Park, taking a run in downtown, or rediscovering and exploring the city, you can find me enjoying the sunlight.
