We are pleased to congratulate Melissa G. Ray, a partner with Nichols Zauzig, for being named as a Go-To Medical Malpractice Lawyer by Virginia Lawyers Weekly for 2024. The attorneys were nominated by their colleagues and chosen by a panel from Lawyers Weekly.
Honored as a member of the Class of 2023 Leaders in the Law, Ray was also named an “Influential Woman in the Law” in 2021 by Virginia Lawyers Weekly, Ray has also earned regular mentions in Lawyers Weekly for million-dollar settlements and some of the state’s largest verdicts over the last 15 years.
The George Mason graduate has developed a niche representing plaintiffs in birth injury and trauma matters, requiring a depth of knowledge in OBGYN practices and procedures, and she’s become known for her ability to successfully establish non-economic damages in medical malpractice cases.
Ray has been asked to speak at numerous conferences and in CLEs on medical expert testimony and trial preparation techniques, as well as other issues. A graduate of the American Association for Justice’s Leadership Academy, she is a vice president of the executive council for the Virginia Trial Lawyers Association and a member of the invitation-only Boyd-Graves Conference.
