Melissa Green, Esq. is an experienced and compassionate attorney who takes pride in helping her clients navigate the complex and bureaucratic world of Federal Social Security Disability claims. Coming from a family of blue-collar workers, she understands the value of hard work and how years of strenuous labor can take a toll on both a person’s mind and body. Her father became disabled from a long, demanding career as a heavy-duty diesel mechanic. Melissa takes great personal and professional satisfaction from helping Linarducci Law clients continue to provide for themselves and their families.
A native of Maine, Melissa was the first in her family to attend college. She worked for several years as a high school social studies teacher prior to attending law school and has a keen interest in education issues, including special education. Melissa graduated with her Juris Doctor, magna cum laude, from Drexel University where she was ranked fifth in her graduating class and participated in the Philip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition. She was awarded the prestigious American Law Institute Scholarship and Leadership award as the graduate who best exemplified both of these traits. Although Melissa devotes her law practice to Social Security Disability cases, she also volunteers to represent foster children in Family Court proceedings through the Delaware Office of the Child Advocate. Melissa is also the President of the Solo and Small firm Section of the Delaware Bar Association.
Melissa is a resident of Wilmington, Delaware and lives with her husband of 15 years, Dan, a Wilmington native, and her two Shih Tzu pups, Khan and Hazel. When not at work or spending time with her large extended family, Melissa enjoys weightlifting and hiking.
Melissa is admitted to practice law in Delaware, Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
