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. While in law school Melissa met her husband, Ben, a native Tulsan. Following graduation, Melissa and Ben moved to Tulsa and she 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 handled their workers' compensation defense litigation, which included large exposure catastrophic injuries and death cases. She also provided personal injury defense for the insurance company’s policyholders, from car wrecks to slip and fall cases. In 2018, Melissa left her in-house role to expand her practice area expertise. While working for a small boutique law firm, she honed her research and writing skill set and gained substantive practice experience in the areas of family law, contractual disputes, construction defect, personal injury, malpractice defense (architects, engineers, dentists, doctors, hospitals), employment, and oil and gas law. Melissa founded her own law firm, Melissa Oxford Law, PLLC, in February 2019.
