  • Ryan R. Shafer

    Melissa is extremely knowledgeable about domestic relations, particularly military retirement. This is an aspect of domestic relations that few attorneys have much knowledge about. Anyone going through a domestic relations matter, especially dealing with military retirement, should feel extremely confident with Melissa as their legal representation.
