Steven Mendelson

Senior Partner

Steven was born and bred in Manchester and qualified as a solicitor in 1988. At 16 he had high hopes of making it as a professional footballer but after playing in the English Schools U16’s football league he realised he wasn’t quick enough or skilful enough to make it. Plan B therefore took effect and he had to fall back on school academics and seeking a proper profession. After training in the main areas of law including conveyancing and crime, he decided to specialise in personal injury which was quite novel in 1989 when he set up his own law firm operating from his terraced house in Whitefield, Manchester.

Much of the initial success of the practise was down to a decision to maximise the use of computer systems at a time when other law firms were not doing so, and this created a major market advantage which alongside other factors led to Mendelsons enormous initial growth. Steven has always been keen to focus on systems and workflows.

Over the years the practise has evolved from dealing with personal injury, road accident claims, credit hire, industrial disease, and PPI claims to financial mis-selling which the practise now exclusively specialises in.

Steven prides himself in running a tidy and efficient ship with client care being a top priority. He together with his senior colleagues within the practise decide on the practice’s direction in terms of areas of law and to maximise clients’ damages within the minimum time. All work carried out within the practise is on a No Win No Fee basis which means that there is always an identity of interest between the firm and the client in the outcome of cases.

Steven heads up the recruitment within the practise, the critical criteria being a sound academic background with good computer and communication skills plus an ability to get the job done well.

Married with 5 children any time away from work is taken up with family life and trying to escape the Homer Simpson characterisation.
