She holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Sociology and completed two years of law school in Ventura, California.
Melissa has been working in the legal field since 2001. She began her legal career in a boutique law firm in the central valley where she has worked in private practice and in the courtroom, most recently as the lead courtroom clerk to a prominent presiding judge.
Both her practical experience and legal education has strengthened her legal knowledge in various areas of law including personal injury, employment law, family law, bankruptcy, probate, and various civil litigation including transactional, business litigation, and tenant/landlord cases.
She takes great pride in developing a strong rapport with clients and firmly believes that the paralegal-client relationship should be much more than a business transaction – it involves dedication, trust, and communication.
