“When I started ASLG in 2009, I had no idea where it would take me.  Over the past five years I have been privileged to work with over 100 clients ranging anywhere from top-level surfers, skaters, snowboarders & skiers, wakeboarders, mountain bikers to cinematographers, producers, and musicians.  Being able to help these athletes and individuals follow their dreams is without a doubt the most rewarding part of my job.  We pride ourselves on our success rate, our ongoing relationships with our clients, and our ability to have fun in what we do.”

-Becky Mendoza, ASLG Founding Attorney

ASLG founding attorney has passionately been involved in action sports for over ten years.  Born and raised in Miami, Florida she attended the University of Florida, graduating Cum Laude at the age of 20, with a Bachelors degree in Psychology.  After enrolling in law school, she received an opportunity to spend a summer in California where she interned with The Familie, known today as Wasserman Media Group’s Action Sports Division, under super-agent, Steve Astephen.  During her time at Wasserman, Becky worked on a variety of legal matters including contract review and athlete relations and became enamored with the industry.  She graduated from St. Thomas University of Law in 2005 with a Juris Doctor and a Master’s Degree in Sports Administration and immediately passed the Florida bar exam and worked as an attorney for a few years in Miami.  Becky returned to Encinitas, California in 2007, passed the California bar exam and began working as a contract attorney for the major league baseball agency World Sports LLC, and for International Law Group LLP, an athlete-immigration firm specializing in equestrian disciplines.  With years worth of action sports experience, contracts, relationships, and her ability to relate to the lifestyle of action sports athletes and professionals, Becky decided to marry her knowledge of contracts and athlete visas with her passion for action sports open her own law firm.  In March 2009, Action Sports Law Group was born.  Today, her passion for action sports and the lifestyle associated continues to play a pivotal role in her day-to-day life.  Her love for surfing, snowboarding, yoga, and an all around healthy lifestyle all impact her outlook and practice as an attorney.  By incorporating these passions into her business, she has been able to connect with clients on a personal level and form relationships that go far beyond the office.
