MELINA MARTINEZ

attorney

Melina’s unparalleled work ethic is entwined with her deep sense of compassion. Melina made the choice to pursue law in high school as she witnessed the harmful effects of social and economic injustice. Her practice is supported by a willingness to tackle new challenges, refusing to be daunted. Her calming, authoritative presence reassures clients and colleagues alike.

Charting an independent course for her life from a young age, Melina realized that she would be required to find her own solutions to the challenges she faced. Learning to advocate for herself has built the skillset to fiercely advocate for others. Her conviction that all people are entitled to justice, equality and dignity under the law are imbedded in her character. Without illusions about the difficulty of the cases she handles, Melina’s positive outlook charges her ambition to right the wrongs her clients face.
