Dulce Mendiola

Dulce Mendiola, Hess Law Office, Friday, Mar. 4, 2022.

During her years working with injury cases at law firms, Dulce Mendiola says she has been a fierce advocate for fairness in all things.

“When someone’s injured, I like the fact that I am able to help them out in any way I can,” she said. “Unfortunately, the only way to compensate someone when they’ve been injured is monetarily, but I just really like to make sure our clients are fairly compensated.”

Born in Mexico, Mendiola, 35, grew up in Milton-Freewater, Ore. She has spent most of her life in the Walla Walla Valley, other than her time studying at Portland State University and a year at the University of Puerto Rico, which she attended through the National Student Exchange.

Mendiola returned home in 2009, shortly after her daughter was born, to be closer to her family. Not long after, she noticed an ad for a law firm, Willis and Toews. She worked there as a legal assistant for about two years before moving on to her current role as a case manager with the Hess Law Office in Walla Walla.

“I was really interested in the legal field,” she said. “That’s why I came here to Hess Law Office. (I) was able to take more leadership over my cases and charge of what I do.”
