Melissa started working in law offices when she was 16 years old in a high school work program. In the past 30 years, she has held every administrative and paralegal position imaginable. She has attended more depositions, mediations, focus groups, and trials than most lawyers. She has assisted in the investigation, preparation, litigation, and trial of multi-million dollar lawsuits, including car wrecks, 18 wheeler involved fatalities, oil field explosions, and on-the-job injuries (most involving catastrophic injuries or death). What she does best, however, is take care of her clients. Whether it’s answering discovery or fighting with an insurance company over medical care, she always has her clients’ best interest at heart. Outside of the legal business, Melissa enjoys travelling, cooking, and spend time with her family and friends.
