Tracy Neal-Lopez Senior Associate
Tracy Neal-Lopez has been Mesriani Law Group’s senior associate attorney since June 2012. She has many years of experience in handling legal trials and litigations. She has taken various cases to court including jury and bench lawsuits and arbitration disputes. She has also practiced in both federal and state courts, representing numerous clients who have experienced many life-changing circumstances. Ms. Neal-Lopez’ triumphant opposition to the assumption of risk doctrine in the Lackner vs. North case back in 2006 before the California Court of Appeals was one of her main achievements throughout her career. Her expertise serves as MLG’s crucial advantage over other law firms, as the firm takes pride in its willingness to bring different lawsuits to trial.
Ms. Neal-Lopez mainly concentrates on legal representation for plaintiffs in employment and labor-related disputes. As an employment and labor law attorney, she handles a variety of legal suits in both fields. Some of these cases include wrongful termination, wage and hour violations, employment misclassification, sexual harassment, and whistleblower retaliation. She also handles prospective economic advantage interference, non-compete provisions, defamation, employment contract breaches, and workplace discrimination and harassment disputes.
In addition to the labor and employment law issues previously mentioned, Ms. Neal-Lopez manages cases related to business and corporate litigation such as partnership disputes, corporate dissolution, business contract violations, and unjust business practices.
Ms. Neal-Lopez graduated from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English. She then obtained a law degree from Loyola Law School. She is currently affiliated with a number of professional legal organizations, including the American Bar Association and the Association of Trial Lawyers of America. Ms. Neal-Lopez was also selected to be part of the top 100 lawyers recognized by the National Advocates, an association of top U.S. attorneys with outstanding accomplishments in their chosen legal field.
