Most Powerful Companies.


finding justice achieving results

Founded in 2001 by Cyrus Mehri and Steven Skalet, Mehri & Skalet, PLLC is one of the nation's leading class action and complex litigation firms. We represent employees, consumers, whistleblowers, investors, small businesses, and others in high-impact cases against powerful interests. Our lawyers have collectively recovered hundreds of million dollars, over the course of their careers, for their clients.

What We Stand For


Although it was a near traumatic experience which led me to Mehri & Skalet, the expertise, guidance, empathy, and dedication of every team member I encountered, provided me the confidence and peace of mind to know that I was not alone or defenseless. Richard Condit, Cleveland Lawrence, and their team, embody a standard of excellence with an impressive depth and breadth of knowledge and experience, effectively and successfully advocating on my behalf. I cannot think of another firm or attorneys who are better equipped to advocate on behalf of whistleblowers. Cyrus Mehri is a gladiator for justice.

— Former client from a race discrimination case

I was tremendously impressed with Richard Condit and the attorneys at Mehri and Skalet. These are very high-class, high-powered litigators who are outstanding… This firm has very high standards and everyone gives 150%.

— Whistleblower client

The firm philosophy says it all. Change is difficult. Entrenched institutions and corporations will resist change. Whistleblowers are change agents. Mehri & Skalet exists to give outstanding support to whistleblowers. I would never have been heard without their skillful and outstanding legal support. I will forever be grateful for their support.

— Former client from race discrimination matter

Though Richard was as concerned as I was with exposing and stopping the underlying wrongs, he was at least as concerned for me as his client, foreseeing and advising me through the personal tolls that whistleblowing seems so often to entail. He never pushed me to take the early and easy settlements we were offered along with strings that I remain silent forever about the fraud. Instead, he patiently guided us to a settlement that was strong on all fronts. I highly recommend him.

— Former Chief Operating Officer of a large organization

Richard’s expertise and concern for me and my family resulted in a tailored plan that permitted me to safely share my information with regulators and law enforcement. His steadfast support enabled me to continue my quest for accountability, and I am very grateful for his guidance through a difficult period.

— Former Banking Executive

Richard is extremely knowledgeable, caring, sensitive, hardworking and smart. I have never seen anyone that cares as much about a client and his/her family. Richard increased my odds of winning my whistleblower case from 1% to over 70%, before the case was resolved. He aggressively fought for me and my family to the last minute.

— Professional Civil/Structural Engineer

It was amazing to work with Ellen Eardley. She is very caring. I really appreciate how she checked in on me from day one. I wouldn’t change a thing about it. I feel proud that I was able to stand up for other pregnant women to make a difference. It was a pleasure working with the entire team, including the National Women’s Law Center and A Better Balance.

— Talisa Borders, Walmart Class Representative

Our minuscule group of around 100 dental consultants . . . took on one of the largest global providers of insurance, annuities and employee benefit programs, employing over 48,000 people and prevailed! . . . One thing I am sure of: we prevailed not because of the strength of our case but the strength of our legal team.  When others doubted this case, questioning if we could go up against MetLife’s legal team I simply responded by saying Google our legal team. . . . Each of you has been extremely transparent throughout, informing us of where our case was weak or strong, and what to expect as a result moving forward, with great accuracy.

— Carol McNeely, MetLife Class Representative

Why clients should choose M&S

At Mehri & Skalet we commit to a client-centric approach, which means caring for the clients’ needs, listening to their ideas, and encouraging their participation in their cases. Clients can get results and participate in creating lasting change.

Barriers to Selection and Advancement for Women and People of Color for Police, Fire and Correctional Officer Positions

Many state and local governments use "cognitive" and “psychological” tests for evaluating applications for police, fire, correctional officer, and similar positions. They may also use physical "ability" or "agility" tests. Often these tests have little if anything to do with actual job requirements and do not predict job performance—while disproportionately (and illegally) eliminating persons of color or female applicants. Mehri & Skalet’s lawyers have prevailed in many important cases in this area, knocking out tests that disproportionately and unfairly eliminate people of color and women. We are very interested in communicating with African American, Latinx, and women applicants who were disqualified for a police, deputy, fire, correctional officer, or similar position because of scores on cognitive, psychological, or physical fitness tests.

Many small businesses in our country have suffered mightily due to the economic consequences from the coronavirus pandemic. While small business owners know that the consequences are severe, they may not know whether they have insurance for loss of income due to the coronavirus. [...]
Mehri & Skalet is investigating abuses by for-profit prison vendors and other companies in the private corrections industries, such as pre-arrest diversion programs, commercial bail bond, and rehabilitation and treatment programs. If you believe you have been overcharged or unfairly treated by a company you paid for services connected with incarceration or the threat of incarceration, we would like to speak with you. [...]

M&S is investigating a potential action regarding price-gouging at hospital emergency rooms. One practice that is connected with higher bills is the assessment of higher charges for “out-of-network” ER doctors, despite the fact that ER patients by definition do not get to choose where they are treated, or by whom. If you were subject to billing for emergency room treatment you believe was extreme or unfair, we would like to speak with you.
Mehri & Skalet represents Sadie Boone, who was sued by Stoddard Baptist Nursing Home for breach of contract relating to allegedly unpaid bills for her sister’s care. Federal law explicitly forbids nursing homes from pursuing friends and family members for residents’ unpaid bills. But that is exactly what Ms. Boone alleges that Stoddard Baptist does as a regular business practice. Her complaint alleges that this business practice violates the District of Columbia’s consumer protection law. If you have been subject to collections actions or lawsuits related to a friend or family member’s nursing home care, we would like to speak with you about your experience.
