During law school she volunteered for the Washington County Public Defender’s Office; interned with the Isanti County Attorney’s Office; and clerked for the Honorable William Stewart, Dunn County Circuit Court Judge in Wisconsin.

Reviews
I was respresented by Melisa Field. I was impressed with her communication skills, whether directly with me or within any of the written documents necessary for my case(s). She has a wonderful calm, confident courtroom presence. Melisa kept me from panicking and I appreciated her communication with me while in the courtroom. She has an elegant, rapier sharp mind which is reflected in her written communication and official documents. Equally important, Melisa truly understands her client's needs. She is prompt, professional, and has a great depth of knowledge of the law. Anyone would be lucky to have Melisa Field represent them!

Melisa Field is professional, ethical, and compassionate. Brilliant on the intricate nature of her field, Melisa and her team are an asset to the legal field.
