About Me

Melody Parman graduated from UCLA in 2005, at the young age of 20. During her undergraduate studies, she was elected President of the Political Science Club. She was also elected to represent her school in the prestigious Model United Nations program and traveled across the country participating in research to formulate political positions on actual policies of the countries she represented. She was awarded several honors for her public speaking, debating, and critical thinking." She attended California Western School of Law in San Diego, and finished a three year program in only two, graduating far earlier than her peers. 


 


Starting her professional career, Melody joined Avrek Law Firm, which is located in Irvine. Since 2011, she has advocated for victims of severe and catastrophic injuries, including traumatic brain injuries, paralysis and loss of limbs. "The files I manage are not just cases to me, they are lives."  In 2013, she represented several clients on a pro-bono basis, including an amputee victim of a DUI. Melody has obtained over 7 million dollars in compensation for her clients in 2013 alone. Most recently, a 1 million dollar policy limit settlement for a client with neck injuries. Her firm has also been awarded membership in the highly coveted Million Dollar Advocates Forum and Multi Million Dollar Advocates Forum, placing the attorneys in the top 1% of firms in the United States. She has been a member of several legal associations in the community, including, California Applicants Attorneys Association and Consumer Advocates of Los Angeles.


 


In 2014, Melody was selected as one of The National Trial Lawyers Top 40 under 40 attorneys in the United States.  Membership is extended to only 40 trial attorneys in the State of California a year. She is presently noted as one of the top trial attorneys in the State of California under the age of 40. 


 


In 2014, Melody was also selected as Dewitt, Algorri and Algorri's trial attorney of the year. She was lead counsel representing a client who suffered injuries against the County of San Bernardino. The case has been reffered to as the "Bridge to Nowhere."


 


In 2015, Melody was selected to the 2015 Southern California Rising Stars list, an honor reserved for those lawyers who exhibit excellence in practice. Her honorship will include mentions in Southern California Super Lawyers Magazine- Rising Stars, Los Angeles Magazine, Orange Coast Magazine and Los Angeles magazine, The Top Women Attorneys in Southern California.  


In 2015, Melody was chosen to receive the National Academy of Personal Injury Attorneys, Inc. prestigous Top 10 Under 40 Attorney award for the State of California. Awards are giving to only 10 attorneys under the age of 40 a year. 


 


Melody is committed in representing her clients and relishes the competitive challenge. Many of her clients are minors under the age of 18 years old, and the aspect of representing children provides the greatest satisfaction in her career. "Many of my clients are going through very difficult times. I've seen a lot of bad things happen to good people, especially children. I pride myself on helping, caring, and advocating for people when they need it the most."
