Summer J. Melton
Summer Melton grew up in Phoenix, Arizona, and graduated from Arizona State University with a degree in Business Law. In large part due to her lifelong love of country music, she decided to move to Nashville and attend Belmont College of Law. While at Belmont, she competed on the mock trial team and was a National Finalist in the 2017 American Association for Justice Mock Trial Competition. Summer also interned for Davidson County Circuit Court Judge Kelvin Jones and participated in Belmont's Domestic Violence Practicum, representing victims of domestic violence in Davidson County with a limited license.
After graduating, she was hired as an Adjunct Professor at Belmont University where she teaches Pre-Trial Procedure and coaches Belmont’s undergraduate mock trial teams. Before joining Meridian, Summer primarily litigated workers' compensation and personal injury cases.
Outside of the office, Summer enjoys lifting weights and taking care of her plants and new puppy.
