Melissa Berniard


Melissa Berniard is a skilled hurricane insurance attorney with more than 14 years of experience. Growing up in Dothan, Alabama, Melissa spent a significant amount of time in Panama City. This led her to develop a deep connection with and love for the city. In fact, Melissa’s family still lives in Panama City and has a business that was affected by Hurricane Michael. Her personal connection to the region allows Melissa to empathize with those who lost their homes and businesses as a result of the hurricane. As such, Melissa offers her clients compassionate, personalized legal guidance and aggressive representation against major insurance companies.

Melissa earned her Bachelor of Science from Auburn University before going on to pursue her J.D. from Loyola Law School of New Orleans in 2004. Over the course of her career, she has handled a variety of issues, including countless hurricane property damage and insurance claims. She has personally represented numerous clients who were negatively affected by hurricanes and other serious natural disasters. Melissa has successfully argued before the Louisiana Supreme Court. In every instance, she strives to serve as the dedicated advocate and guide her clients deserve.

Melissa is married with two children. In her free time, she enjoys horseback riding and spending time with her family and two dogs.
