I think MELVIN SHAW is an excellent attorney. He drew up new wills for us, as well as durable power of attorney for my husband and me. He was very attentive to our needs, professional and personable. I feel his fees were reasonable as well. I would certainly recommend him to family and friends.
Melvin recently helped my husband and I with the sale of our home. He came highly recommended, and was very quick to return my initial phone call. He did an excellent job of answering all of the question we had. As first time sellers, the timeline he provided helped us successfully navigate this process with ease. He was upfront about what we could expect in terms of fees, which we appreciated. In addition to being very friendly and easy to work with, Melvin proved to be very knowledgeable and reliable as well. We would recommend him without reservation, and will seek out his services in the future as needed.
My spouse and I initially utilized Melvin for estate planning. He was extremely thorough as he explained our options and made recommendations in setting up our will, living will and family trust. Since that time we've purchased two homes and created a small business. He crafted the purchase agreements and advised us on each of those endeavors. These things are so personal. It was important that we not only use an attorney that was professional and competent but one that gave us the the time we needed, was genuine and understanding. We've recommended him to family and friends. We'd use him again in a second, he's great!
Melvin has always promptly returns calls and emails, gives educated, clearly stated advice. Appointments are made and kept. I have already recommended Melvin and would do so again.
We have used Mr Shaw for 2 different real estate transactions, and he has been great to work with on both. He also looked over my wife's contract when she graduated and joined a practice. He has always kept us up to date on where we are at in the process, and is very helpful with telling us what we need to do. Would strongly recommend him.
I found positive information about Mr. Shaw on this website and called him with a question. I don't need to hire an attorney yet. I can comment only on this telephone conversation, and that's why I have rated him only in the two categories I experienced: his knowledge and his responsiveness to my question. He answered my question very clearly. If I do need to be his client in the future, I definitely would trust him. He was very professional, polite, kind and helpful on the telephone. I felt he gave me his complete attention, he was interested in my situation, and he listened carefully. I couldn't have wished for anything more or better in an initial telephone conversation.
If you're looking for a young, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic attorney, Melvin Shaw is the perfect fit for you. He goes far beyond his job expectations to protect you. He is honest and fair. Additionally, he is very easy to communicate with clients and other lawyers. He has a very nice, enjoyable personality and I would recommend his services to any individual who wants someone who will get the job done in a timely and efficient manner.
