Melissa Yutzey McKinley

The Fighter

Melissa Yutzey McKinley is a fighter. A fighter who delivers for the firm's clients each and every day. 

If you’re in a tough legislative fight you want Melissa working for you, not against you.

Her average workday is twelve (12) hours and she is just as likely to eat a meal over the kitchen sink as she is to entertain clients at a high end restaurant. “It’s not always glamorous,” she says. “But it’s always exciting.”
