Location & Position
Melissa handles operations for the firm’s office in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Her significant legal experience allows her to serve clients efficiently, with an eye toward achieving strong practical outcomes.
Melissa’s practice is currently focused on property law. In the past, she worked as in-house counsel for a Fortune 200 insurance company for a significant portion of her career. While in that role, she focused on providing high quality and cost-effective legal representation and she continues to prioritize that mindset for every client she represents. She has extensive experience in all phases of litigation including discovery, depositions, hearings, trials, and mediations.
I have two beautiful daughters – Cora and Audra – my most precious gifts. I enjoy spending my free time exploring the Tulsa Zoo, the Oklahoma Aquarium, Philbrook Museum of Art, and the Gathering Place with my family. I enjoy coaching Cora’s soccer team and look forward to being involved in more of my girls’ activities as they get older. I also enjoy cooking, theater, musicals, ballet, concerts at Cain’s Ballroom, travelling, and watching the Arkansas Razorbacks.
