Assignment Coordinator / Administrative Assistant
Melissa came to the Lubbock Private Defenders Office after working for the Lubbock County Sheriff’s Office as security personnel at the Lubbock County Courthouse. She became interested in working with people in the Lubbock community after being a part of the East Lubbock Promise Grant as a professor at Texas Tech. She volunteers as a sewing and quilt instructor at Lubbock Impact, as well as a member of the Stocking Project which provides thousands of Christmas stockings for the military overseas. Being at LPDO means she has a chance to serve the public by assigning lawyers to indigent cases and help those who come into the office.
