Initially we hired a larger firm who said they would work very hard for my brother. But without even meeting my brother, they wanted him to plead guilty to a felony he did not commit. In addition, they failed to schedule an arraignment in a timely manner, resulting in my brother being arrested.
With one day notice, Mr. Melton was at the arraignment and arranged personal bail.
Ultimately, Mr. Melton was able to get a felony charge reduced to a misdemeanor. Perhaps more important for us, Mr. Melton always believed in my brother.
Finally, we want to mention that Mr. Melton is an incredibly nice human being! He always took all of my calls and explained everything! Consistently, he went above and beyond what was required.
My case was somewhat different from most. I needed to prove custody of a dog that an ex stole from me. John Melton acted quickly, assertively, and was up front about everything he was going to do, and made everything happen smoothly. He was very understanding, and caring when many other lawyers I tried to tell my case to laughed, told me I was crazy, or what I wanted to do was a joke. John kept me up to date on every step that happened throughout the case. He was readily available by email and phone, and would return any missed phone call or email promptly. He is highly knowledgeable, very trustworthy, extremely responsive, and overall friendly and caring person. John Melton is the one you want to hire. He will get the job done, and make sure you are a part of the process every step of the way. He is worth every penny.
John did a great job at taking care of me and my friends legal situation and i feel as though he did a wonderful job and i appreciate all that he did do. finally he did it all with a good price
John is impressive, and his extensive knowedlge of the law. John is very honest, trust worthy i refer John to everyone.
