Attorney Melanie Glickson's interest in the law was sparked when, as a college student, she took a summer job working for a successful labor and employment law firm.  Fascinated by some of the cases the firm was handling, she discovered she had an affinity for legal research and writing, and a knack for crafting persuasive arguments. 

From that exposure to the practice area, Melanie knew that she wanted to work in the field of employment law. After law school, she accepted positions with the employment law departments of large, respected Boston law firms, representing companies in employment disputes before government agencies and in state and federal court.  Following her time in Boston, she worked in the Office of the United States Attorney for the District of Maryland, representing the United States government in a broad spectrum of employment cases. 

This work gave Melanie the opportunity to become even more familiar with federal employment law and to spend a lot of time in the courtroom, honing her litigation skills.  Melanie considers advocacy an art form, and derives great satisfaction from advocating effectively on her clients' behalf.  She has been described as a tenacious litigator. Clients appreciate Melanie's exceptional service and responsiveness, and colleagues have praised her skill at research and writing and her poise and effectiveness in the courtroom.

While Melanie enjoys litigation, she recognizes that avoiding litigation, and the costs that go with it, is sometimes in her clients' best interests.  She keeps up with developments in the ever-evolving area of employment law, and applies that knowledge to helping clients conduct business in a way that minimizes employment disputes.  Melanie has also published a number of articles on employment law and been quoted in several news outlets.

Melanie also serves as a mentor at the University of Maryland Law School.  When not practicing law, Melanie enjoys spending time with family, cooking, travel, running, and yoga.
