Summary

Melissa Oxford is from Webb City, a small town outside of Joplin, Missouri. She went to University of Arkansas for undergraduate studies and later attended the University of Arkansas School of Law. Following graduation, Melissa moved to Tulsa and began practicing law in September 2010. Initially, Melissa worked for a well-respected private law firm practicing workers' compensation defense. She sharpened her trial skills, took hundreds of depositions, and became an excellent negotiator by participating in numerous mediations. As a result of her hard work and proactive management of her caseload, Melissa was hired as in-house counsel for a large nationwide insurance company in 2012. During her six years with the company, she defended both workers' compensation and general liability cases. Melissa now focuses on business litigation, employment law, intellectual property law, and family law.
