About Me

Welcome to Melanin Jurisdiction! I’m Haley, a twenty-something, future attorney from Houston Texas living my best life in Southern California.

I was born and raised in Houston, but I lived in Chicago during the younger years of my childhood. I graduated from Louisiana State University (GEAUX TIGERS!) with a mass communication degree with hopes of going into broadcast journalism. Plans quickly changed because a year after I graduated, I decided to go to law school instead.  I packed up my bags and moved to sunny Southern California where I just recently graduated from law school and sat for the California Bar Exam.

Melanin Jurisdiction is best described as the inner workings of a young, soon to be attorney that is dripping in melanin; it’s a canvas of my inspirations, expressions, loves, challenges and moments of enlightenment as I navigate through my twenties. It is my hope that all my melanated boss ladies (and men) can come to connect, and gain inspiration as they discover themselves and navigate their everyday lives.

Lets grow together!
