Brighty Melton

Brighty Melton

Born and raised in the Chicago area, Brighty earned a college degree from Drake University, specializing in Psychology with minors in Sociology and Spanish. She moved out to Colorado to complete her Masters of Social Work at the University of Denver, and was employed as a licensed clinical social worker with children and families.

As a social worker, Brighty most enjoyed helping people who were going through a difficult time in their life. Now, as a paralegal professional at The Babcock Law Firm who specializes in personal injury cases, she achieves the same sense of purpose and reward by lending a helping hand to injured clients and their families.

"My clients may be in different circumstances, dealing with a personal injury as opposed to family difficulties; however, everyone needs some help when faced with a difficult time in their life. I'm glad I can continue to provide that assistance to people."

Brighty also enjoys spending time with her family, including her two children. Both of her kids are dancers and she loves watching them perform. Outside of work, she also spends time traveling, skiing, hiking, running, and reading.

Sophie Squire

Coming soon

Sophie grew up in Berkeley, California, and she received her Bachelor of Arts in Sociology/Criminology and a Certificate in Public Health at the University of Colorado Boulder in 2019. She also received a Certificate in Paralegal Studies at Denver’s Metropolitan State University in 2019.

Sophie worked in juvenile probation for a year in Boulder, which required that she attend various hearings, maintain a client caseload, conduct intakes and assessments, as well as file, review and draft legal documents such as motions, complaints, warrants, etc.

Sophie clearly has a passion for fighting for the rights, justice and equality of others in the legal system. She strongly believes that everyone—regardless of race, class, gender, etc.—should be treated fairly and equally. She is currently studying for the LSAT and plans to attend law school in the next few years.

As a paralegal for The Babcock Law Firm, Sophie is very social and enjoys interacting with our clients.

"I take great pride in winning arguments, especially when it’s for a good cause."

Outside of studying and working at the firm, Sophie enjoys taking her dog on long walks and hikes, listening to crime podcasts, eating sushi and spending time with her friends.

Brenden Ray

Coming soon

Brenden is a native of Aurora, Colorado, and he attended undergrad at the University of Colorado Denver. He graduated in 2018 with a BA in International Studies, then went on to pursue his Masters in Social Science (M.S.S.), Social Justice. He received his graduate degree in 2020.

In graduate school, Brenden’s main research specialization was in labor laws and how they have shaped much of the world we live in. After taking some law classes, he discovered he had a strong interest in the legal side of labor rights issues, which naturally led him into workers’ compensation law.

"Workers’ compensation is a direct result of labor issues shaping policy as the entire system developed out of the labor movements of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, and continues to be shaped by how we understand the worker-employer relationship."

Prior to joining The Babcock Law Firm as a paralegal, Brenden worked for a youth development non-profit.

Until recently, most of Brenden’s life outside of work was dominated by his Master’s degree and writing his thesis on the emotional impacts that workers in the nonprofit industry experience as part of their work. Since wrapping up his thesis, he has finally had more time to pursue creative writing projects and go on walks with his partner and their dog, Lexy.

Vanessa Bodie

Vanessa Bodie

Born and raised on the Western Slope in Grand Junction, Colorado, Vanessa attended Fruita Monument High School, spent a year of undergraduate education at Brandeis University in Waltham, MA., and graduated from the University of Denver with degrees in biology and psychology (with a concentration of neuroscience in both).

Vanessa joined The Babcock Law Firm because she is interested in studying law, and eventually practicing law in a specialty that she’ll be able to use her background and knowledge in the physical/biological sciences. She enjoys working as a paralegal in workers’ comp law because of how she’s able to help our clients, many of whom have been seriously injured and forgotten or dismissed by insurance companies and employers.

"The human interaction, and knowing you are making a positive impact on a client’s life and wellbeing, is rewarding."

Outside of the office, Vanessa likes to ski as much as possible. She also plays on a volleyball rec team, cycles, paints and cooks in her spare time.
