Melodie Powell Appointed as an ALJ for the MO Division of Workers' Compensation

Attorney Melodie Powell is very excited to start the next adventure in her legal career as an Administrative Law Judge for the Missouri Division of Workers' Compensation.  Melodie will be based in Jefferson City and will handle the dockets in Columbia, Macon and Kirksville along with mediations in Jefferson City.  Melodie has been with Evans & Dixon since 2001 and has over 25 years of defense experience.

"For the past 16+ years, I have had the pleasure and privilege of working with the best workers' compensation defense attorneys in the state at Evans & Dixon," said Melodie. "That goes for our clients as well.  The claims representatives and employers I work with do an exceptional job of following the law, whether it be making sure that injured employees are taken care of or fighting those claims that need to be fought.  They have made my job much easier and, for that, I am most appreciative."

The team here at Evans & Dixon is sad to see her go, but we wish her all the best with her new endeavors! 

Client Testimonials

When we have a case or a situation where we need expert legal counsel, I know my staff can pick up the phone and quickly speak with one of our attorneys at Evans & Dixon. We can get a credible opinion about where we are and what our exposure is. They listen to our situation and if necessary, do the research to help us understand what our risks are and what avenues are needed to pursue.
