Biography

Melissa is from Webb City, a small town outside of Joplin, Missouri. She went to University of Arkansas for undergraduate studies and later attended the University of Arkansas School of Law. Following graduation, Melissa moved to Tulsa and began practicing law in September 2010. Initially, Melissa worked for a well-respected private law firm practicing workers' compensation defense. She sharpened her trial skills, took hundreds of depositions, and became an excellent negotiator by participating in numerous mediations. As a result of her hard work and proactive management of her caseload, Melissa was hired as in-house counsel for a large nationwide insurance company in 2012. During her six years with the company, she defended both workers' compensation and general liability cases. Melissa now focuses on helping people injured by no fault of their own receive fair compensation.

Legal Answers
38 Questions Answered
Q. I hit a cow with my car. How long can I sue
A: The statute of limitations for negligence is two (2) years in Oklahoma. I recommend hiring a personal injury attorney to investigate - sooner rather than later. In my experience, these are difficult cases to prevail on in Oklahoma.
Q. She ran a red light and a motorcycle hit side of her car and died. Her fault, what charges should she face?
A: The criminal charges, if any, will be at the discretion of the Prosecuting Attorney. It takes time for them to file the charges because they have to gather evidence and determine the appropriate charge(s) to ensure conviction. The family will likely be contacted to provide a victim impact statement but in the interim, they could contact the Prosecutor to get additional information. I would recommend that the family hire a personal injury lawyer if they have not already and see if the PI attorney can facilitate getting that information.
Q. If you where hit by a train at a railroad crossing with zero visibility, who is responsible?
A: Under Oklahoma law you are required to yield at railroad crossings. Accordingly I believe you were at fault notwithstanding the visibility issues particularly since you were familiar with the route and knew there was a RR crossing there. Railroads are maintained by the federal government and you can only sue for tort damages under certain situations. A specific exception is suing for failure to maintain roadways, etc.
