Founding PartnerSteve Mehr

Mr. Mehr has overseen hundreds of millions of dollars in successful recoveries for his personal injury, class action, and mass tort clients. He offers an insider’s view on how successful cases are built, investigations are pursued, and settlements negotiated to all Sweet James clients. Steve routinely works on significant matters and his celebrity clients include Grammy and Golden Globe winners, social influencers and actors with Stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

“This law firm was founded based on the observation that only large corporations and the powerful could afford top legal representation while the rest of us were left without fair access. In response, I built this law firm to level the playing field and protect everyday people. When you hire us, you are hiring more than just lawyers. You are hiring a highly experienced team of lawyers who have dedicated their entire lives to fighting for injustice and helping everyday people like you.“

Wayne Gross, a former chief with the U.S. Attorney’s office and past county bar president recently stated that “Steve is one of the best consumer advocates in the country.” In addition to numerous awards and pro bono projects, Steve continuously gives back to the community through his work and mentorship programs and work with local charities to serve those who are less fortunate.

“Steve is one of the best consumer advocates in the country.”
