Melissa Clune, a native of Bainbridge Island, Washington, has been helping wrongfully injured individuals attain justice since 2006. Prior to attending law school, Melissa worked as a paralegal handling personal injury matters. She learned how to navigate the intricacies of injury claims against insurance companies and government entities. She is experienced in handling varied and complex personal injury matters, including products and premise liability, negligent roadway design, medical malpractice, and nursing home negligence cases.
Melissa’s goal is to provide the absolute highest quality of representation for her clients, and she takes pride in handling each case personally, from start to finish. Melissa knows that effective personal injury representation requires not only aggressive advocacy, but compassion and caring for her clients as well. Having been wrongfully injured herself in the past, Melissa brings to her practice a personal understanding of the hardships facing her clients. She does everything in her power to reduce her clients’ stress and anxiety that inevitably results from an accident and its aftermath.
Melissa attended Syracuse University as an undergraduate, majoring in Economics and Political Science, before going on to obtain a Juris Doctorate from the University of Washington School of Law. During her time at law school, Melissa volunteered with the Bankruptcy Clinic Client Representation Program, providing assistance to low-income clients in filing for Chapter 7 and 11 bankruptcies. She also served on the board of the Washington State Association for Justice (WSAJ) UW Law School Chapter and in 2011 was awarded the Women of WSAJ Bar Preparation Scholarship for having demonstrated a zealous dedication to plaintiffs’ work.
