About Top Drawer Insurance

Top Drawer Insurance Services has traveled a long way. My grandfather, Maurice Melvin, founded his Pasadena, CA agency in 1932. My father, Don Melvin, then took over the reigns in 1965, and continues to sell insurance for Top Drawer Insurance out of his Palm Desert office.

After graduating from the University of Redlands in 1982, I personally decided to pursue other options. In 1985, I felt it was time to give insurance a try. I fell in love with insurance on that first day, 28 years ago, and insurance remains a passion of mine.

I purchased the agency from my father in 1998, merged briefly in 2006 with another agency, then decided early in 2010 to go back to the roots of my family owned business. Top Drawer Insurance Services has arrived.

I believe in the products I sell, and I am proud of the service and commitment I have always given my clients. For over 81 years, hard work and integrity have prevailed in this 3rd generation business.
