She won my employers appeal.
Paige went above and beyond from what I had expected. I am a 38 year retired Police Officer, but cant seem to stay home. I went to work as a Security Officer for the worst company I have ever worked for in my life. I have a Polaris Slingshot which has an open cockpit. I was an extra officer that day and wanted to leave work early because of bad weather. Long story short I applied for benefits and won. My old employer appealed my case and Paige won it again for me! I loved how she spanked there hands a couple times and the best was when she evoked the rule during the hearing and my X employer said what's the rule!

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. Now, as a trial attorney at the Law Office of Rob Wiley, she represents clients in employment issues like discrimination and retaliation. She also represents clients in multiple forums from state courts to federal courts to administrative proceedings.
