Client Testimonials


“Melinda was very thorough and kept me up to date on everything. I was very happy with the work. She went above and beyond and I was very impressed. This was a great experience.”


“[My attorney] has taken the professional time needed to keep me up to date as well as on the weekend during her personal time to make a call to me and my family to check on us and inform us where things stood. In my opinion she has thus far gone above and beyond and is exceptional to this point. The end point is where I feel we will truly be able to see where we are as far as stress and results in the case coming to a close in which we are all looking forward to having pleasant and successful results for us having our daughter in our custody.”
