Attorney Melissa Scheidel

Melissa Scheidel has been practicing law since 2002, when she was sworn in under the Third Year Practice Act while still in law school. After an internship with the Fulton County Solicitor General's Office, she was offered a full time position, where she served as a criminal prosecutor until starting her own firm in 2013. Since then she has dedicated her private  practice to helping people overcome a variety of legal challenges. She is particularly passionate about helping people navigate the court system and making sure her clients understand everything that is happening with their cases. 

For over twenty years, Melissa has worked to  broaden her knowledge, gain expertise, and establish good working relationships with other members of the legal community. She has argued thousands of motions and tried hundreds of cases, both bench and jury. She also serves her community as a part-time municipal court judge. 

In her spare time, Melissa enjoys music, photography, pottery, and crochet. Every summer she travels with her husband and daughter and, together, they have visited all 50 states.
