Client Reviews
David S. June 10, 2023
Paige is a firecracker and I am so happy she was MY lawyer As we all know, dealing with a lawyer or firm is never an enjoyable occasion. However, I had a great (not enjoyable) experience with my lawyer Paige Melendez. She was thorough, efficient, professional and most importantly, she has my best interest as her priority. She’s a firecracker and I was happy she was my attorney. I could not have asked for a better experience. Thanks, Paige!

Great Lawyer she will go the extra mile. Paige did an amazing job representing me. She listened to my concerns and fought for me through out my case. If you want an attorney who will go the extra mile for her client hire Paige. She followed up and ensured that I received a settlement that was fair!!!! THANKS AGAIN FOR YOUR AMAZING WORK!!!!

Biography

Ms. Melendez is committed to listening to each client's story, evaluating it, and proposing and executing practical steps to meet client goals. The cornerstone to a successful attorney-client relationship, in Ms. Melendez’s opinion, is creating clear lines of communication to help build trust between her and her clients. Ms. Melendez has always known she wanted to become a lawyer. At every key juncture in her life, when asked what she wanted to do with her future, she always responded that she wanted to become an attorney. However, as she neared the end of her undergraduate career at Texas A&M University, Ms. Melendez became interested in employment and labor law and began to envision herself not only as an attorney, but as a labor and employment law attorney. The next step to achieve her goal was applying to law school and she attended The University of Texas School of Law. Even though deciding what type of law to practice so early is rare, it is rarer to stick to that choice through law school. Despite the rarity, when Ms. Melendez took her first class on employment discrimination law at Texas Law, she knew that she had made the right choice. She continued to pursue her dream by interning over the summer at the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and learning valuable advocacy skills from the attorneys in the litigation unit. Ms. Melendez also spent a semester gaining real-world experience by splitting time between law school classes and a non-profit law firm called the Equal Justice Center that specializes in helping indigent clients with their employment issues. Both her experiences and passion for this area of the law helped prepare Ms. Melendez to practice employment and labor law in her career.
