5.0 stars 24 totalReview Melanie Ellwanger
Highly recommend Mrs. Ellwanger. Very kind and trustworthy. SHE KNOWS WHAT SHE'S DOING PEOPLE !
Melanie saved me! I am a 17 year old senior in high school who made some bad mistakes while driving. I got 2 tickets in June then 2 more in August. I corresponded with Melanie via email up until my court date. The day of court she took care of everything for me- I did not even have to speak with anyone directly. Melanie was very pleasant, thorough, knowledgeable and knew exactly what she was doing. Had it not been for her - my driver's license would have been suspended for sure.
I recommend her services to everyone that has made some traffic mistakes.
Thank you Melanie!

Melanie is very smart, capable and has the ability to produce miracles in some cases. She did that for my son with fantastic results.......dismissal! She is the ultimate professional, very personable, and knows exactly what she is doing. She is very highly recommended and you will be glad that you found her!

I could not recommend Melanie any more highly. Her strategy to mitigate the penalties in my DUI case was masterful and ended up getting the charge completely dismissed. She's professional, personable, and extremely knowledgeable. Five out of 5 stars. I'd give her six out of 5 stars if that made any sense.

She was able to dig out a record that was over 25 years old, and obtain copies of the results in 2 cases, after everyone had been told by the Clerk's Office that they were no longer in existence, and after others had failed to find them. She received high praise from the people in the Clerk's Office for the way she handled this. Melanie is very capable, and exhibits wisdom beyond her years. We trust her completely, and would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone in need of a Lawyer

I was in the wrong place at the wrong time and got nailed with a DUI because I refused. I knew to get a lawyer, so I hired Tricia Solomon from the Solomon Firm. Thinking all you need is a lawyer and they will let you off with a lesser charge is not true! She gave up and said I should take the charge. I was determined to get a lesser charge and get a second opinion. I was referred to Melanie by another friend and then started reading the reviews. I decided to meet her and wow...what a difference! She was professional, asked about my character, and what I did for a living. This is all before signing any contract! I asked her for a chance of getting a lesser charge and she said 30% (I am all about numbers!). Although not good, it was better than 0%. She made me feel comfortable and told me not to worry, so I hired her. (I travel to Canada and with this charge I would not be able to do so for 10 years.)
She was responsive, professional, knowledgeable, and not to mention well connected. A couple of months later...I got my charge reduced to Reckless. Should the situation arise, she should be the only lawyer to consider! Its true that not all lawyers are created equal.
What makes a lawyer great is that he or she can do what seems impossible!

Melanie was a pleasure to work with during my DUI case. She was very knowledgable and thoughtful throughout the stressful (for me, anyway) legal wranglings with the court and the overall process that a person has to go through along the way. She worked with the court lawyer to get my DUI charge reduced to Reckless Driving, which was a HUGE relief to me (and my insurance rates). I would highly recommend her services if you ever get yourself in a similar situation. She's great and definitely someone you want on your side during such a difficult/stressful time.

Melanie has a professional and calm demeanor. My DUI charge was in a difficult county with a difficult judge, neither of whom typically reduce charges. Although I have to endure a lengthy probation, my charge was reduced to reckless driving which was a big relief to me. I believe the reduction was at least in part due to Melanie's positive relationships with the prosecutors and the judge. Both Melanie and Bubba made me feel like a normal, valuable human being, instead of being made to feel like a threat to society by the police, judge, and prosecutors.

Melanie was such a bright spot during such a difficult and stressful period in my life. I was charged with DUI, .179, and failure to maintain a lane in Jackson County. She guided me with expertise and positivity...my charges were reduced to reckless driving. I've dubbed her Legally Brunette. I highly recommend Melanie for your legal needs.
