Mr. Melin brings his courtroom experience, excellent writing and academic credentials, and his passion for truth and justice to Sanders.Law. Mr. Melin knows that every client’s case is important and that every client’s story deserves to be heard.

Mr. Melin always strives to obtain the best possible results for his clients and to hold wrongdoers accountable for their bad conduct.

BACKGROUND

Alexander C. Melin was born and raised in Garden City, Kansas. He attended the University of Kansas in Lawrence, Kansas, graduating in the top ten percent of his class in 2006 with a B.A. in Slavic Languages and Literature. Mr. Melin subsequently went on there to earn his M.A. in Russian, East European, and Eurasian Studies in 2008.

Mr. Melin studied law at the University of Kansas School of Law, graduating with his J.D. in 2014, in the top ten percent of his class. While in law school, Mr. Melin interned with the Finney County Attorney in Garden City, Kansas, and with the American Chamber of Commerce in the Republic of Georgia.

After law school, Mr. Melin first worked in a wide variety of practice areas in a firm in southwest Kansas and then as an Assistant Ford County Attorney in Ford County, Kansas, prosecuting cases ranging from speeding tickets to murder. As a prosecutor, Mr. Melin handled many DUI cases and learned about the tremendous harm that can occur when someone makes the terrible decision to drive under the influence of drugs and alcohol.

In late 2017, Mr. Melin moved to the Kansas City area, joining a friend’s plaintiffs’ personal injury practice, and set about learning the legal and practical intricacies of practicing personal injury law. Armed with that knowledge and experience, in late 2019, Mr. Melin subsequently joined Sanders.Law where he continues the tradition of helping those who have been injured by the negligent and reckless actions of others and holding wrongdoers accountable for their conduct to promote safety in the community.

Mr. Melin is licensed to practice law in the states of Kansas, Minnesota, and Missouri.
