Melissa Hoon

Melissa Hoon portrait

On March 23, 2022, the Firm received the sad news of the passing of our dear friend and long time co-professional Melissa Allen Hoon. She will always be remembered as a valued and cherished member of the JDJ family.

Melissa was a key member of our business, corporate and real estate practice. Among other disciplines, she had an extraordinary degree of expertise in trademark and branding protection law, having developed a distinguished record in matters pending before the United States Patent and Trademark Office as well as the USPTO Trademark Trial and Appeal Board.

Her high intellect, keen legal mind and heart warming smile will remain as a rich and impactful legacy to those who knew her as a friend and co-worker.

Melissa graduated Summa Cum Laude from the University of Texas at Arlington with a B.A. in Political Science in 2001 and received her law degree from Southern Methodist University in 2004. She also studied abroad at Oxford University during the summer of 2002.

The untimely loss of our dear friend will always serve as a powerful reminder of the importance of living each moment to the full as well as the virtue in the pursuit of excellence in all things-as Melissa so richly taught us on a daily basis.
