Melissa K. Rasmussen

Staff Attorney

Melissa strives to create efficiencies and exceed expectations through observation and organization. She enjoys working through challenging legal issues to find solutions that solve complex problems for her clients.

When she’s not in the office, Melissa can be found outdoors—exploring the local neighborhoods, walking through farmers’ markets, enjoying brews at the local breweries, or spending time with family at their gatherings, especially when it involves her nieces and nephew.
