Your Sexual Assault Lawyer

Melissa Hague, Esq.

Your Sexual Assault Lawyer

Melissa has long been an advocate for the rights of underrepresented groups and those harmed by institutionalized abuse. From representing women who have been taken advantage of by pharmaceutical and medical device giants to children who were abused as a result of institutional negligence and neglect, she has passionately fought to get justice for survivors who suffer from the permanent effects of trauma.  Melissa takes a zealous trauma informed approach with each sexual assault client while fiercely standing up for them against their perpetrators. Melissa is passionate about changing the culture of sexual violence and giving survivors a voice in a safe and secure environment. Her number one priority for each client is that civil justice is part of the healing process and affords each survivor with the ability to take back control and regain their Voice.

Melissa has developed a reputation as a sensitive, compassionate and fearless advocate. Her tenacity for defending assault victims along with her knowledge of the civil court system has allowed her to obtain justice for her clients. While empathetic to her clients and the trauma they have experienced, she is not afraid to stand up to powerful defendants who thrive on intimidation tactics.

Alexis Puzzella

Paralegal

Alexis passionately advocates for justice on behalf of sexual assault survivors.  She received her B.A in English from Kutztown University while also obtaining her paralegal certification.  Since graduating, she has spent her career working for firms that represent Plaintiffs whose lives have been dramatically affected by the negligence of major institutions and companies.

Alexis also spends time outside of work involved in charity groups and volunteer organizations in her community.  She is an active committee member for the Eastern PA Chapter of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.  Through her work with the CF Foundation she has planned a number of large galas, great strides walks, and events to raise funds and awareness for people living with CF.  Alexis is also a member of the Girl Scouts of America where she spends time mentoring and developing young women within her community through volunteer events and activities. 

Give voice to what you know to be true, and do not be afraid of being disliked or exiled. I think that’s the hard work of standing up for what you see.
