Our Practice

Criminal Defense

If you are under investigation for a crime, or if you have already been charged, it is important to understand just how much is at stake. Criminal charges of any severity have the potential of stripping you of freedoms, costing you expensive fines and, in many cases, resulting in jail time.

Immigration Law

We understand that our work has enormous impact on the lives of immigrants and their families. Immigration law is extremely complex and having an experienced immigration attorney guide you through the process is absolutely essential.

Post-Conviction Relief

You may have forgotten about those old convictions, but the government hasn’t. All arrests, and criminal convictions, stay on your record long past their Statute of Limitations. If you need to clear your record, talk to us.

Live Scan

Arrests and even minor misdemeanors show up on people’s records. It’s important to you to know what other people see. And what employers and judges want to see is honesty. A Live Scan fingerprinted background check will show.

About Jonathan Mendoza

Jonathan Mendoza has history in the Inland Empire.  He is an advocate now fighting for the people he calls his “neighbors”.  Before he became the advocate he is now, in both Criminal defense and Immigration defense legal work, he earned his law degree at the University of La Verne, College of Law, in Ontario, California.

While attending law school, Jonathan served as president of the Hispanic National Bar Association and clerked at the Riverside Public Defender’s Office, helping indigent clients facing criminal charges get a fair trial. As a student immigration attorney for the Justice and Immigration Clinic, he offered to speak on behalf of those who had no voice before the law. He provided representation to migrants seeking asylum and humanitarian relief in the United States. And the people he helped brought stories with them—stories of persecution and hardship, but also stories of hope and of the impact ever-changing laws have on the dreams of hard working families.

After law school Jonathan returned to the Public Defenders where he successfully litigated thousands of cases through both negotiations and trials, obtaining the best possible results for his clients. In 2017 Attorney Jonathan Mendoza formed Empire Law, Inc., where the hard lessons learned as a public defender still help him battle for people facing the fights of their lives today.
