Melissa Hedrick

Melissa Hedrick was born in Arlington, Texas.  She moved with her family to Oklahoma City in 1989, when her father received a call from an Oklahoma City church to be its minister.  Ms. Hedrick received her undergraduate degree in Political Science with a minor in History from the University of Oklahoma, where she graduated with special distinction.  Ms. Hedrick then entered the Oklahoma City University School of Law where she was awarded the Hatton W. Sumners Scholarship. This is one of the most prestigious law school scholarships in the country, which provides for full tuition as well as a living and book stipend.  Ms. Hedrick received her Juris Doctorate from Oklahoma City University School of Law, where she graduated first in her class and Summa Cum Laude.  In addition, Ms. Hedrick received numerous honors and awards from Oklahoma City University School of Law, including CALI Awards for Academic Excellence (an award given for scoring the highest grade in a class) in 13 courses.  Additionally, Ms. Hedrick was named to the Faculty Honor Roll and Dean’s List every semester.  She also received the Judge Tom Brett Award for Excellence in Criminal Law, and an Outstanding Graduate Award for Outstanding Academic Performance – an award voted on by the faculty at Oklahoma City University School of Law.  Ms. Hedrick also served as an officer in Merit Scholars and as a Member of the Law Review for the Oklahoma City University School of Law.

Since graduating law school, Ms. Hedrick has represented clients all over the State of Oklahoma.  She has worked tirelessly on behalf of her clients and has even argued before the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver, Colorado – an accomplishment not achieved by many lawyers during their entire legal career.  She has represented clients in matters large and small and strives to treat each client with the utmost respect, recognizing the impact injury can have on a person’s life.

Ms. Hedrick is a member of the Oklahoma Bar Association, and is admitted to practice in all 77 Counties in Oklahoma.  She is also admitted to practice before the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals, as well as the U.S. District Courts for both the Western and Northern Districts of Oklahoma.

Ms. Hedrick is married to her husband of 15 years and has one child, a daughter named Emma.  With her family, she enjoys hiking in Oklahoma, Colorado and Red River, New Mexico, as well as running, growing a fresh herb garden, reading, and spending time with Emma.
