Her experience includes corporate structuring, focusing on acquisitions and reorganizations with a view toward maximizing tax benefits from domestic and international standpoints. She routinely represents clients in federal and state tax controversies.

This part of her practice includes the negotiating and drafting of operating agreements and drafting of varied organizational and transactional documents.

She has written opinion articles for the New Jersey Law Journal and is a former adjunct instructor at Rutgers-Newark for the course, Fundamentals of Federal Income Tax.

Melinda guides affected clients through the IRS Offshore Voluntary Disclosure Program and assists clients with other offshore income issues. In 2010, she was on the panel for "Powering Green: An Overview of Issues in Generating Solar Power on Building and Sites," where she discussed tax issues in the federal renewable energy grant program and other "green" tax incentives. Melinda coordinated the Norris Mclaughlin & Marcus roundtable discussion, "Strategies to Minimize Damages from Madoff & Other Recent Investment Scandals," which received substantial media coverage, in 2009. The roundtable was geared toward providing vital information on a wide array of tax issues to the victims of the Bernard L. Madoff Ponzi scheme and other scandals. Through months of dedicated research and analysis, Melinda counseled many of these taxpayers and continues to assist these clients.
