Discipline, focus, and strength. Three words that best describe Melissa Fulgencio’s care for each of the clients she represents. Her passion to help small to mid-size businesses have lead her to start her own “client-focused” practice, Uplift Law. From So-Cal Powerlifting to OC Strength Club, Melissa has represented those who are truly looking for an attorney they can trust. “Legal Strength At Any Size” is more than a motto, it is Melissa’s commitment to fearlessly fight for you on the legal platform.
Not only a powerhouse in litigation, but Melissa is also a MACHINE on the platform. Competing at the 52kg & 56kg weight class, she totals a phenomenal 804lbs and a 428 wilks. Nationally ranked in USPA & USAPL, Melissa also dives into what she is doing to gear up towards possibly her best competitive year ever.
In this episode, Melissa and I discuss how she went from a morbidly obese newly attorney to nationally ranked powerlifter. Listen as we go over:
- The lesser known areas of litigation
- Encouraging women to pursue law
- How she changed her life and discovered powerlifting
- Her passion for representing the “little guy”
- “There’s never a no, just not yet”
