COLUMBIA, S.C. – Experienced attorney Amanda Mellard has joined Robinson Gray law firm as a member.

She will be working out of Greenville, where she has practiced for years, in the area of workers’ compensation defense.

Amanda received her bachelor’s degree in political science from Clemson University in 2003, and her Juris Doctor degree from the University of South Carolina School of Law in 2006.
