Assistant County Solicitor
Howard County Office of Law
Asked about her most significant professional accomplishment, attorney Melissa Goldmeier recalls a couple of cases that she won. In one case, the losing plaintiff complimented her work; after the other, the losing plaintiff gave her a hug.
“I am most proud of my ability to effectively advocate for my clients while also treating an opposing party with dignity,” Goldmeier said.
A 2010 graduate of the University of Baltimore School of Law, Goldmeier joined the Howard County Office of Law in 2015.
Off-duty, she volunteers with Athletes Serving Athletes, an organization that pairs able-bodied volunteers with individuals with disabilities to help the latter group train and compete in running events.
She loves the work. “Not only does this elevate the quality of life for individuals with limited or no mobility, it also outwardly demonstrates the benefits of inclusion, connection and teamwork,” she said.
“I am a problem-solver who finds sincere joy in connecting with others, and I believe that the power of relationships can help people realize their full potential,” she added.
