About Melissa S. Larson
When she set out to attend law school, Melissa had the goal of helping children in mind. Little did she know that through handling family law cases, she would do just that. Starting a family of her own has since strengthened that resolve, Her favorite cases involve step-parent adoptions, helping a parent and child choose one another and become true family.
Melissa graduated from Winterset High School, and began her college career at Des Moines Area Community College. After graduating summa cum laude from Grand View College with a degree in criminal justice, she attended Drake University Law School and earned her juris doctor degree with high honors, Melissa was licensed as an attorney in the State of Iowa and has been in practice since 2011.
Melissa is married and has two children. She enjoys spending time with her family, travel, photography, and reading in her spare time.
