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

They’re very empathetic when they need to be, but they are also results and business oriented when they need to be. I also trust them, not just with me and my staff, but also with the injured workers and people on the outside they have to deal with as well.
