Melinda Arbuckle

Baron & Budd PC

Melinda Arbuckle’s practice with Baron & Budd’s Employment Law Group centers on litigating cases that make a difference not only in the lives of specific individuals, but also in shaping policy for the better protection of workers at large.

In trying cases under the Fair Labor Standards Act and Worker Adjustment Retraining and Notification Act, Melinda values her role as an advocate for employees to be treated equitably.

Ms. Arbuckle received her Juris Doctor at Southern Methodist University. She chose law school because of her affinity for resolving problems. “I love the puzzle of complex cases. Learning rules, understanding complications and simplifying them is my passion.” While in law school, Melinda was a research assistant to Civil Procedure Professor Elizabeth Thornburg. She studied issues and assisted in the preparation of coursework relevant to the litigation surrounding the BP Oil Spill and Multidistrict Litigation generally.

After law school, Melinda worked for Baron & Budd prior to clerking for Federal Judge W. Royal Furgeson. While at Baron & Budd the first time, she represented clients who were harmed by asbestos products.

The ability to help those whose health had been detrimentally affected while working was extremely rewarding. During her clerkship, Melinda drafted orders of the court regarding employment cases, particularly regarding workplace discrimination. She also observed and assisted with the Multidistrict Litigation Panel’s hearing at Southern Methodist University, as Judge Furgeson was head of the Panel at the time.

Melinda is pleased to return to Baron & Budd as an associate attorney. “I always knew I wanted to represent individuals, not companies. My clients are people who may believe they have only a quiet voice in law and in life. It’s my mission to make sure their voices are clearly heard.”
