ATTORNEY MELISSA GARCIA OF HINES LAW
Melissa discovered her passion for law after spending many years volunteering within the Latino community. Not only was she a regular volunteer with non–profit organizations, she worked with the Chamber of Commerce and other organizations focusing on minority issues and other groups focusing on small business.
During this time, she saw a need in her local community for an Attorney who could not only provide excellent legal services, but also for someone people could trust and could communicate in the native language of those she had spent so many years working so hard for. She determined to be that person.
While attending law school, she served on Moot Court, won 3 CALI awards, received a scholarship, and continued to serve in a volunteer capacity as a Registered Civil Mediator and a Court Appointed Special Advocate (C.A.S.A.). She graduated law school Magna Cum Laude and received an award for Public Service Distinction. To this day she continues to volunteer within the Latino community, but now focusing on legal needs and issues.
Melissa specializes in the areas of criminal defense, family law and immigration. Since beginning with the Law Offices of Matthew C. Hines, she has successfully helped clients wrongfully charged with minor and serious crimes, spouses involved in emotional divorces and immigration applicants who were facing deportation.
