Shawna Melton

As a kid I never wanted to be a lawyer. Truth is I didn't really know any lawyers. I was one of 4 kids with a stay-at-home mother and a father who worked hard, long hours as a construction worker. I learned first-hand from my parents, what hard work looked like. I stumbled into law when I was pregnant with my daughter. Realizing that I wasn't ready for a 9-5 and wanted to raise my child I knew I needed to go back to school- so law school it was! I started when my daughter was 10 weeks old, attending class at night. By the end of the first semester I was hooked. I am forever a student of the law and nothing excites me more than an opportunity to fiddle in a new area of law, expanding my knowledge of law. I certainly never dreamed of being an attorney but thankful that the decision was made for me. I am enthusiastic, sarcastic, humble and ready to serve.
