I have been through several lawyers in my divorce saga, and finally found the right one. Melody will advocate for you and your child 100%. No more backroom compromises. Totally prepared when she shows up in court, and seems to be able to out maneuver any opposing council. She will tie the other side in knots, and doesn't bill you a quarter hour just to read an email. Knows the law like no one I've seen, and her background in law enforcement is also a plus. Hire her if you want to win. I can't recommend her highly enough.

Excellent lawyer. Helped me get custody of my son when I thought I wouldn't ever see him again. Ms. Fortunato is the best lawyer I have ever worked with!

I am a client of a complex divorce case. When this lawyer took over my case, everything changed for the better. She reversed the damage iny case and now, I have my children back! She is thorough and does not miss a thing!

Melody handled my wife's criminal case with a tenacity that sent a message to the prosecutors that resulted in a disposition that would have been much worse. Thanks to Melody, I don't worry anymore about our future. When it really matters, you better have a lawyer that knows how to fight.

Ms. Fortunato is the best family law attorney you can find. She was everything that I wanted in an attorney and more. What she did for my case was amazing. She was exceptional in all areas: very tenacious, savvy, responsive, and always kept me informed. She knows the law inside and out and successfully wins the case by using the law. I found an attorney who I could trust and treated me as if I were family, which is rare. She is a diamond... she has both the things everyone wants...a lawyer who is both savvy and who also truly cares and fights for her clients. I am so thankful that I found her as an attorney. She is the best and I would vouch to say that no other lawyer in the area can top her.

I would absolutely recommend this lawyer. I had a very tenacious divorce which was emotional and difficult for me. Ms. Fortunato took me right through to trial. She was exrememly prepared, knoweldgeable and knew her way around the courtroom. I was happy she was on my side! If it were not for her, I would have walked away with nothing. Instead,I received more than what I thought I could get.
