Melody Jones graduated law school in 2005 and began her career at McCalla Raymer as an associate in late 2008. After being promoted almost annually she became one of the youngest partners in the firm’s history. She became the managing partner of the firm’s foreclosure and title clearance group in 2012, collectively the largest department in the firm.
Due in part to Jones’ successful management of her departments, the firm expanded its default practice into Alabama and Mississippi in 2013 and 2015. A member of the firm’s management committee by 2013, Jones was voted into the firm as an owner in 2015. She is currently a long-standing member of the USFN Publication Committee and also co-chair of the Woman Law’s Symposium.
