    Melissa Avery is consistently ranked as one of the top 50 lawyers in Indiana. That and her extensive experience in family law (17 years) is what led me to hire her to handle my child support case. Several things impressed me about Melissa during her handling of my case. First, she won every point of my case against my ex-husband. Her organized arguments and concise presentation of my case and supporting documents led the judge to find in my favor across the board. This obviously benefited me financially and emotionally. Second, she listened to me throughout the case and let me be a part of it. She answered my questions and always responded to me quickly by email and phone. Third, she was cost conscious and was very vigilant about keeping the expense of my case to a minimum. She kept me constantly informed of my attorney fees so I could monitor and plan for the cost of my case. There are attorneys that have a lower hourly fee (my ex-husband hired one), but in the end using Melissa saved me money because of how organized she was with her time and because of what she won for me.

    Mrs. Melissa Avery of Avery and Cheerva is much more than just a clear and concise professional. She litigated on the behalf of my family with diligence and supreme sincerity. Her representation was invaluable in the outcome of securing what was factually within my child's best interest. Mrs. Avery and her team were vital, and in my continuing opinion have directly attributed to my child's proper care and development. In the most difficult of times my family needed an attorney that was there to assist us with experience, expertise, shear integrity and unflinching fortitude. That is the kind of Attorney Melissa Avery is and I strongly recommend her to all those who are in need of not just a family law attorney but are in need of the very best of all family law attorneys."

    • I do not recommend Melissa Avery.

    Ms. Avery was very deceptive in her knowledge of law according to her professional website. When someone is involved with a family law dispute it can be a very trying time. I needed a fighter on my side who could demonstrate a professional level of competence. Ms. Avery didn't display the high level of professional competence that I am in great need of. Ms. Avery isn't suited for cases in which she would have to display the necessary qualifacations and determination needed to actually stand a chance of winning a tough case.I was extremely disapointed in my consultation and would advise anyone in my similar position to not waste their time.
