    • I recommend Sanford Melder.
    • I hired Sanford 1-6 months ago.
    • Sanford handled my Divorce / Separation matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    Aric and his team are great! I needed a good divorce attorney that was affordable as well. Aric and his team were very professional and competent and got me an my kids the settlement we deserved. I was pleasantly surprised at the different areas of law his practice covers. I will be also getting him to handle my credit issues and possible bankruptcy as well.

    • I recommend Sanford Melder.
    • I hired Sanford 1-3 years ago.

    Anytime we had to get some answers Sanford was right there on the phone with us. He is very knowledgeable about our industry. I have had other lawyers in the past. Not again. Sanford got the job done. I would recommend Melder and Melder to anyone in my family or in business.

    • I recommend Sanford Melder.
    • I hired Sanford more than 3 years ago.
    • Sanford handled my Divorce / Separation matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    When it comes to family law situations Mr. Melder is fantastic. He is very tough and really fights for your rights, even if it is a difficult situation. Plus he is willing to work with you on payment terms you can afford when most other lawyers won't do that. He really knew the law and also he knew the people at the court which I think helps a lot. I hope I never go through another divorce situation, but if I do Mr. Meldder will be the lawyer I call!

    • I recommend Sanford Melder.
    • I hired Sanford more than 3 years ago.
    • Sanford handled my Corporate / Incorporation matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    I have hired both of the Melders for various legal matters concerning my condominium hotel property. It has been my experience that when you are in a dispute, you want someone who knows all the rules, and has expertise to get the job done correctly. Both of these gentlemen were what I needed to help in my legal matters. I was impressed with both their level of representation and the results they gave me. I will continue to use them for all of our legal needs.

    • I do not recommend Sanford Melder.
    • I hired Sanford more than 3 years ago.
    • Sanford handled my Divorce / Separation matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    Sanford J. Melder is more interested in his reputation and making money than he is about the welfare of his clients. When asked to postpone a FOC interview he said he wouldn’t because it would hurt his reputation; additionally, he often phoned me for a one minute chat, to see how I was doing, and then charged me $75 (he charges on the quarter hour). When it came time to actually to go trial he said he wouldn’t and withdrew from the case; he abandoned me, took my money and left me flat footed. Sanford J. Melder is not trustworthy.

      Lawyer Comment:

      This post was left by the other side in a divorce case. This person was very bitter with the poor results that he got and was not happy that my client was so successful.
      I always do the best I can for my client and fight hard for them and their position.
