On time. Done right.

You handle sophisticated, challenging issues. You deal with several matters at once. You have deadlines. You must keep up with new developments in your field.

Occasionally, you need to refer a matter to coverage counsel—for advice, litigation, an appeal. You want a lawyer you can trust. One who knows the law and understands your problem. One who will keep you informed. One who will allow you to make your best decisions.


Melendez & Associates has the expertise that you need to effectively and efficiently resolve your sophisticated legal issues. We come from top-tier law schools. We have big firm experience. We have earned Matindale-Hubbell's highest peer review rating—AV Preeminent—reflecting the highest level of professional ability and ethical standards

We have the analytical ability for all types of insurance, including commercial liability, errors and omissions, directors and officers, homeowners, property, life and disability. We counsel clients on complex coverage issues, providing coverage analysis and claims advice.

We are admitted to practice before all the courts in California and Nevada, the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit and the United States Supreme Court. We have represented clients in all types of litigation, including claims for breach of contract, breach of the implied covenant of good faith and fair dealing, independent counsel, contribution, fraud and rescission. We have successfully argued appeals in state and federal courts.


We will work closely with you to fully understand your expectations and objectives. We will report all significant developments to you. At each decision point, we will provide you with innovative and creative options so that you may make good, informed decisions.


We appreciate that every matter referred to us—large and small—is important. We will take personally, and will earn, the confidence you show in us. We know that whatever we do reflects on our clients and will seek to obtain the best possible results. Our work for you will be on time and done right.
