    Attorney Profile

    At Buckley, Mendleson, Criscione and Quinn, P.C., Ira Mendleson III is a workers’ compensation, personal injury and Social Security Disability attorney. While he has been with the firm for more than three decades, his focus for the last 10 years is almost exclusively Social Security. He represents clients from Essex County, Green County, the Glen Falls metropolitan area and the Albany metropolitan area in New York.

    Mr. Mendleson served as Rensselaer County’s assistant district attorney for three years and as Albany County’s assistant district attorney for five years before moving to private practice. He is admitted to practice before the United States Court of Appeals for the 2nd Circuit and in the state courts of New York. As a legal representative for those who are seeking Social Security benefits, he understands that the odds of success increase greatly when people have a lawyer on their side as they work through the process.

    While earning a Bachelor of Arts from Siena College in 1966, Mr. Mendleson discovered an interest in law through participation in the school’s pre-law Barrister’s Club. He then obtained his Juris Doctor from Albany Law School in 1969.

    Mr. Mendleson is passionate about the law and the rights of individuals, and he works actively to improve the legal system for everyone through his membership in several professional organizations. These include the Injured Workers Bar Association, the Criminal Section of the New York State Bar Association, the Rensselaer County Bar Association, the Albany County Bar Association and the National Organization of Social Security Claimants’ Representatives.
