Melanie Bell

Law Clerk

Melanie Bell joined us at the Greening Law Group as a law clerk in June 2021. Her job includes assisting Craig on his cases, reviewing discovery as well as drafting motions, memoranda, jury charges, and other litigation documents. Aside from litigation work, Melanie also does legal research on various criminal law topics and works on drafting Attorney Manuals and creating training videos for attorneys. Melanie is also assisting Craig with edits to his 5th Circuit Handbook!

Melanie is originally from Fort Worth, Texas, and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Sociology from Texas A&M University in 2017. She then went on to Brooklyn Law School in New York where she became an Equal Justice America Fellow and interned with the Legal Aid Society of New York City. Melanie also earned a Pro Bono Award for providing more than a thousand hours of Public Service Law work.

With a heart for service, Melanie chose to pursue a career as an attorney because she wanted to be a part of providing opportunities to individuals disadvantaged by our justice system. From Melanie herself: “I believe the job of a criminal defense attorney is to help give second chances and stand in the way of the mighty criminal justice system – to better our clients’ lives and our society as a whole. I look forward to striving towards that end each day.”

Now back in College Station, Melanie lives with her two dogs, Anya and Sasha! In her free time, she loves to play soccer, attend boxing classes, and play with her dogs. Her favorite travel destination is San Francisco and her favorite musical artists are Greta Van Fleet and Florence + The Machine.

Melanie’s go-to drink is a spicy Margarita!
