About Melissa Odama

About me

I am dedicated to providing the best possible representation for my clients.  I am an aggressive, diligent trial lawyer who is not afraid of the courtroom.  I never back down from a challenge.  


I bring to the table a wealth of experience. I spent the first eight years of my career as a public defender fighting for and protecting the constitutional rights of those charged with adult and juvenile misdemeanor and felony offenses.  I have also garnered great trial experience in both civil defense and civil plaintiff's work.  I have worked as in-house counsel for a large insurance company defending company insureds from tort claims.  More recently, my practice focused on plaintiff's personal injury law where I found great satisfaction in advocating for persons who have been injured through no fault of their own by the negligence of another.  


Today, I proudly represent both criminal defense and plaintiff personal injury clients.  I am passionate about representing my clients to the best of my abilities.  I am aggressive and eloquent in making sure my client's story is heard.
