Melissa, our founding attorney, was prompted to become an attorney and make a difference when she found a system that was unkind to those without assistance back in the late 1990’s while she was going through her divorce. Her experience informed her decision to go to law school and become an attorney herself so she could reshape the system from within.
Her passion is protecting civil rights, particularly the Second Amendment. Without our civil rights, we are no longer the land of the free. The Second Amendment is important to her as it is the one Amendment that has the ability to defend the other nine in the Bill of Rights. Melissa has been a gun owner for much of her life. As a child, her father taught Melissa how to shoot alongside her brothers.
After September 11, 2001, Melissa became more involved with firearms rights both inside and outside the courtroom. She recognizes the very real threats faced by law-abiding citizens. She works with firearm owners to protect their rights to own firearms, and to preserve this right for generations to come.
Melissa has a well-earned reputation in the field. She often travels to seminars and conferences as a trainer for other attorneys regarding our civil rights and how to navigate the legal issues to protect them.
