About
I worked as for an Internet Start-up during law school where I was also published in the Tulane Journal of Technology and Intellectual Property. After law school I worked for a firm where I was instrumental in obtaining a $21.5 million dollar settlement on behalf of a bankrupt phone company that bet its business plan on a technology that was promised but never delivered.

I took a brief hiatus from private practice to be Investigations Counsel for the United States Senate. After rejoining the private sector I arbitrated a copyright dispute to a $4.9 million dollar judgment for my client (a Fortune 500 company).

"Melvin assisted me with a claim related to the British Petroleum oil spill that occurred in 2010. He was very informed on the process and able to advise me capably. He was communicative at every step and saw the claim through until I received payment. Furthermore, he has continued to maintain a client relationship ever since. Melvin is professional and trustworthy. I would recommend him unreservedly."
