Her representation for me has been good. An example being our success in a case opposing the Dept Child Support Services. She has actually listened to my concerns, kept me in the information loop, and prepared some good court briefs.
Going through a divorce is never easy, even when you know its the right thing to do and know it's the best course of action. While I was in a fog and emotionally and mentally drained, Melanie guided me through the process and helped protect me and my children without taking my ex to the cleaners. I wanted to be fair and had high expectations of everyone walking away from this feeling okay.
Based on my experience and the outcome of my divorce, my friends have called me asking for Melanie's contact info to pass on to their friends and friends of friends.
She is compassionate and caring, fair and conscientious, attentive and tough.
Melanie and I had to fight all of the issues in my divorce---the children, retirement accounts, investments, stock options, the house, child support and even the furniture! Melanie was always responsive to me and if she was not available she would let me know when she would be available via a text message or email. I could count on Melanie to fight my fight and there were times she had to walk me away from the edge of the divorce abyss and keep me focused on what is important for my children and me. If I did not understand legal jargon she would keep it simple. Melanie was key for me knowing that I was empowered and we were a team and that is the only way we slogged through my divorce. If I have any questions even after the divorce, Melanie is there for me and my children.
Ms. Brubaker came into my case late, after I defended myself in a very unfair temp. hearing. She allowed me to continue fighting for my rights as a father, and was not bullied by my ex's attorney anymore. While we didn't slam dunk win the case, I received 90% of what I was looking for, and she will certainly be representing me when the time arises for modification of custody.
She was very diligent in her fight for me. Our case took over a year and she worked very hard throughtout the entire ordeal! I highly recommend her!
I called Melanie Brubaker for advice on a custody and jurisdiction case. She was very responsive, took my call and was able to meet with me on the same day. She reviewed all of the paperwork I had and was able to let me know what to expect regarding the case. She provided a number of ideas and options for me to present to the court and offered great advice.
Even with this case likely transferring jurisdiction out of Georgia she provided additional advice on what I needed to do and what preparations I could make for defending my case in Tennessee.
Melanie Brubaker is professional, helpful and understanding. I highly recommend her to anyone seeking assistance regarding family law.
