Melnick as an attorney is horrible! He will take your money and totally avoid doing anything in the client's defense. He will take a criminal case while knowing that he is a bankrupcey attorney, and it seems terrible at that. He will not answer your calls even though his secretary will say, “can I tell him who is calling.” She will return to the phone and say, he is not available. Do not bother leaving a message on his voicemail because he won't return your call. He did not know the whereabouts of our child because he did not follow up on his case. All he did was take our money. If you need a good attorney to do anything, I suggest you look elsewhere.
