Melvin Thathiah

The Law Office of Melvin Thathiah
Plano, Texas
When Melvin was a child, at age 2, his parents immigrated to the United States. Melvin grew up in Mesquite, Texas and graduated from North Mesquite High School. He then graduated from Texas A&M University and attended Florida Coastal School of Law.
Melvin’s career took him to Dallas, handling cases from divorces and business contract disputes to juvenile criminal matters. He then went to Little Rock, Arkansas to have a lead role in Texas litigation. That opportunity allowed him to learn to practice law in a new area, manage a litigation team and work with court staffs all over the state of Texas. He now lives and currently works running his own practice in Collin County and the surrounding counties.
Melvin was appointed in February 2015 as an Associate Judge for the Justice of the Peace Courts in Collin County. Since then, he has heard many cases and served the residents of his community.
Melvin also serves as a mediator in civil dockets for Justice of the Peace 3-1 in Collin County and for litigants though who engage his office. Through his role with the justice court, he has learned the value of helping parties resolve matters which might otherwise end up in Court later.
