 More than You Ever Wanted to Know About Me…
Hi!  My name is Melissa Dewey Brumback, and I am  a partner at Ragsdale Liggett PLLC, a law firm in Raleigh, North Carolina.   I chose the legal professional quite simply because I love to argue debate.  Seriously.   After losing one too many debates with me in my younger years, my dad told me I should become a lawyer.  Voila!  Here I am.
I believe that design professionals perform an important role in our Society, but they often get the short end of the stick when a problem arises on a project.  Owners and contractors are quick to point the finger at the architect or engineer when something–anything–goes wrong.  Don’t get me wrong– sometimes a designer does screw up, and needs to compensate for it.  However, often the architect or engineer is brought into a lawsuit simply for his/her “deep pocket”  [insert chuckle here] ability to pay.  That’s not right, and it’s not fair.  I view my job as standing up for professionals, fighting the legal battles for them, so that they can go back to doing what they do best.  Which is not, hopefully, arguing.  That’s my job.


Want my more traditional bio?  Okay, here you go:
I practice in the litigation department, concentrating on complex commercial, business and construction litigation. Most of my work consists of representing architects and engineers in construction-related claims, including construction administration and management, plan defects, testing failure claims and delay claims. I have represented design professionals in State and Federal courts as well as in binding arbitration.  
My practice includes the defense of all sizes of claims, from residential homeowner cases to private commercial construction to multi-prime public construction projects. I am admitted to practice in all State and Federal Courts in North Carolina, as well as the 4th Circuit and the United States Supreme Court.
In addition to construction cases, I also handle commercial litigation, business disputes, medical malpractice defense, product liability defense, and director & officer liability.   Finally, I head the creditor’s rights/collections practice group at Ragsdale Liggett. 
Remember, you are not a client just because you contact me. We’ll both need  to see if I’m the right lawyer for your needs. [Plus, clients generally pay me!]

Legal Disclaimer and Note  [I am, after all, a lawyer!]:   I welcome your feedback, thoughts, questions, and suggestions.  Just a reminder:  no attorney-client relationship is established simply by contacting me.  If you are interested in legal representation, let me know and we can discuss whether or not I will be able to help you.  I look forward to hearing from you.
