About Melissa Prost
Melissa Prost grew up in Hartford, Wisconsin, with a passion for dance and giving back to the community. After graduating magna cum laude from the University of Wisconsin – Stevens Point with a bachelor’s degree in business administration, Melissa attended Marquette University Law School. Her time in law school included participation in Dispute Resolution Society and Client Skills Board, Moot Court Association, the American Bar Association’s Representation in Mediation Competition and an internship with the Sheboygan County District Attorney’s Office. She now practices in the Gingras, Thomsen and Wachs Lawyers Milwaukee office with a focus on personal injury litigation.
Throughout her legal career, Melissa has remained dedicated to providing all clients with skillful, individualized and compassionate representation. She strongly believes in fighting for justice on behalf of injured people. To continue developing her professional skills, Melissa is a current member of the Wisconsin State Bar and Wisconsin Association for Justice.
When you’re not working… I enjoy spending time with friends and family, as well as volunteering with Wisconsin Professional Dance, Inc. and their Power of Purple fundraising event, which raises money for the Pancreatic Cancer Network.
