4.5 stars 17 totalReview Melissa Isaak
Melissa understands what men have to deal with. I hired her at the end of 2014 and my case was resolved at the end of 2015. Everything you read shows that the courts are stacked against the father. I was an unmarried father with children in the south so I thought I was screwed. I'm happy to report that Melissa represented me fantastically and I now have the custody that my children and I deserve. I highly recommend her to other fathers out there.
After reading through her reviews, I have to agree that I was a happy man after our case. What drew me to Melissa was that she was a therapist before being a lawyer. I hired her a couple years ago when my son was having problems at school with his behavior and my ex was blaming everything on me. Turns out after a long questioning of my son's therapist, my ex was telling my son what to say against me. I am convinced that had Melissa not have her background as a therapist, it would have been missed. Melissa was the third lawyer on the case and the only lawyer who understood the emotional needs of my son. Two years later all is well and my ex has been exposed. I have sent several people to Melissa who have all been pleased with her representation. Melissa is one of the few lawyers that can actually understand from a psychological standpoint what needs of kids are and I would not hire anyone else.
hired melissa because the wife left me after years of having an affair on me. my wife constantly harassed me yelled at me and at times would even hit me with things and busted my nose. i was real nervous becase i didnt think the judge would believe me and believe her. melissa really understand what men go through and i would never hire anyone else. she was in the army and could relate to me as a veteran. i highly recommend her and she wont take your case lightly!

My brother got custody of his girls when his wife left with another man. He has been through hell and back and has never received a penny in child support. His family helped out when he needed it, but he was able to build a good life for himself. Last Christmas we saw on Facebook were she was giving away 50 inch televisions to single dads. I honestly thought it was not real, but sent an email with his information. I was shocked when he said the got a call to come and get a TV. My brother will most likely never use her as he is from North Alabama and his girls are close to turning 19 and hopefully, will never need to go to Court again. I don't know any other lawyers who would do this. Thank you for recognizing these dads!!!

I wanted to hire Melissa earlier this spring but she was on active duty orders with the Army taking a JAG course. Since she was out, I had to use another female lawyer. I told this other lawyer that it was very important to me that I see my kids for summer visitation, but she did nothing for me. I was so glad when Melissa came back, and within two days of her taking over my case, I had my kids for the summer. Melissa does not see her clients as nothing more than retainer checks like the other lawyer did. Trust me, if you want someone who you can relate to hire Melissa. Without a doubt the best Alabama has to offer!

I retained Melissa L Isaak at the end of 2014 to represent me in a legal matter involving my ex-wife and DHR. I was accused of nonpayment of child support to the tune of $141,000.00. After our initial meeting, Melissa L Isaak was satisfied with the documents that I had provided that showed I had indeed taken care of the majority of my obligation. We had our day in court and I was ordered to pay a little over $5,000.00 which was what I call fair treatment. I highly recommend The Isaak Law Firm to any fathers out there that feel that they have not being treated fairly. I would also like to thank Dana M Delk, she was very instrumental in the outcome of my case.

I have known Melissa for years and ended up seeking her assistance. She is one of the brightest, determined caring lawyers I have ever met, and I have used a few in my day. No other lawyer was willing to stand up for father's rights like she is. Want a down to earth, straight shooter then she is your lawyer. No other lawyers can hold a candle to her educationally, personally or professionally. She is a complete self made woman who has not been given a handout from anybody! Trust me when I say that when you meet her you will like her.

I hired Mellissa to be my lawyer to get my rights back to my kid. I had a crappy lawyer before her and the Judge took away my rights because my X told the cops a lie about me. We got a new hearing and the Judge let me see my daughter again but had to see her with a shrink so we could get to know each other again. My X would never show up. But like somebody else said she hung in there with me. I actually couldn't pay anymore but she stayed with me anyways. So that BS about money from that other comment totally isn't true. I probably owe thousands but nothing was ever said. I talked to other lawyers but could tell they really didn't care about my case like she did. Oh, and ask her about why she does what she does. Great story. highly recommended but probably not by my X lol.

Ms. Isaak started out very good. But, as time went by she repeatedly ignored my emails and failed to give me advice that could have helped me make better decisions. Maybe it was because I didn't have a lot of money but that shouldn't matter. In the end I felt as if I had had lots of money she would have fought harder for me. Me exes lawyer misfiled a final agreement and I had to call the judge to get it straightened out. THAT should have been done by by Ms. Isaak.

Melissa met with me when my Wife was wanting a divorce. The situation went on for months and Melissa talked with me and didnt rush me at all. My Wife and I ended up staying together and I am glad but I would recommend Melissa and have sent her friends who are getting divorced.
