  • Jeremy Michael Smith

    I endorse this lawyer. As a former co-worker of Melissa, I had the privilege of working with - and learning from - her. Melissa cares deeply about each of her clients and their families, and she consistently employs her knowledge, experience, and strong work ethic to provide the best representation for her clients. She explains complicated issues thoroughly and well for clients. She does not rest until a matter is handled properly.
