The attorneys’ accomplishments include outstanding contributions to the practice of law in the commonwealth, significant achievements through the practice of law, leadership in improving the justice system, acting as role models and mentors, and making essential contributions to Virginia’s legal community and/or the community at large. The 30 members of the Class of 2023 include attorneys from across the commonwealth in private practice or pubic sector positions.

Melissa joined Nichols Zauzig in 2004 and focuses her practice on medical malpractice, representing plaintiffs throughout Virginia and several other states. She is a leader in the profession and currently serves as a Vice President on the Executive Council of the Virginia Trial Lawyers Association. Melissa is also a member of the American Association for Justice and a Steering Committee Member of the Boyd-Graves Conference. She has been honored by Washingtonian Magazine as a Best Lawyer for Medical Malpractice/Personal Injury-Plaintiff and has been named a Super Lawyer® in that practice area. Melissa has been recognized by Best Lawyers® since 2022.

At Nichols Zauzig, Melissa, along with Managing Partner Charles J. Zauzig, has been recognized in Virginia Lawyers Weekly consistently for million-dollar settlements as well as for some of the largest verdicts in Virginia medical malpractice cases.
