also known as Melissa Mack
I am newly returned to Avvo, so bear with me as I put my profile together.
My law office represents all types of accident injury claims/cases, and we have a 100% win record in that area. What that means is that every single one of our accident injury cases has been successfullly resolved either by settlement, mediation, arbitration, or jury award. Accident Injury is my favorite area of law, and I excel at recovering maximum compensation for my clients. I know what it is like to have your life changed permanently by an accident caused by another party's negligence. Insurance companies make it a mission to devalue your claim/case, so never go it alone. In 99% of cases, I will be able to obtain a much more satisfactory recovery than you will obtain on your own against an insurer.
My law office also handles a variety of employment law cases, namely sexual harassment, discrimination, retaliation, and whistleblower law. We recently obtained a substantial recovery in a pregnancy discrimination case, and are currently prosecuting a Whistleblower case, pursuant to CA Labor Code.
I, or one of my attorney colleagues, will be happy to discuss the merits of your case with you. Employment law is very personal, and it requires a skilled attorney who knows how to navigate the constantly changing case law and legal landscape.
I will update my profile here periodically, and begin answering forum questions. Feel free to contact me directly with your accident injury or employment law questions.
I look forward to working with you,
