Melissa is a trainee solicitor in the conveyancing team, assisting Rachel Silvester with residential property cases.
Melissa joined Myers & Co in June 2021 as a legal assistant after working at various law firms in Staffordshire for five years. During that time she gained experience in residential conveyancing, wills and probate, and family law, including domestic violence, divorce and private children proceedings.
