Kameron Melton is a member of Woods Rogers’ Labor & Employment and Cybersecurity & Data Privacy practice groups. She focuses on guiding her clients through complicated personnel matters and defending clients in federal and state courts.

Through counsel and training, Kameron helps managers and HR professionals understand and comply with federal and state labor and employment laws, such as the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), Title VII, the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA), and the Virginia Human Rights Act. In addition to her training sessions, Kameron often reviews or creates employee handbooks and policies that address her clients’ unique workplace.

Because data security is a top concern for many clients, Kameron also offers guidance on managing cybersecurity incidents discretely and efficiently. To lower the risk of such incidents, she drafts policies to encourage cyber-resiliency in the workplace. Kameron also represents clients in trust and estate litigation proceedings.

Building better workplaces through training is particularly important to Kameron. She enjoys speaking to audiences about preventing harassment, workplace discrimination, and data privacy law obligations. She has spoken at conferences and workplaces across Virginia, including Woods Rogers’ annual Labor and Employment Seminar series.

Kameron joined Woods Rogers as an associate after completing judicial internships with the Honorable Justice Cleo E. Powell, Supreme Court of Virginia, and the Office of Chief Staff Attorney of the Supreme Court of Virginia.

In the community, Kameron passionately mentors and advocates for youth by coaching cheerleading at Lucy Addison Middle School and serving as a board member for the United Way of Roanoke Valley and Children’s Trust of the Roanoke Valley. As part of the leadership team of the Urban Arts Project, she serves an organization dedicated to effecting meaningful change through inclusive art projects. In 2017, the Roanoke Chapter of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference honored Kameron with the Dr. Perneller Chubb-Wilson Award for Justice.
