    • I recommend Melissa Houghtaling.

    Melissa was an exceptional lawyer and I would hire her again in a heartbeat. Beyond being exceptionally knowledgeable, she showed so much compassion for our needs and anticipated concerns before they ever arose. She earned our trust completely.

    Melissa is a top notch lawyer. I have used her several times - and I always feel like she goes above and beyond. I have recommended her to other as well - and they have all had great experiences too!

    • I recommend Melissa Houghtaling.
    • I hired Melissa 1-3 years ago.
    • Melissa handled my Divorce / Separation matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    I had been working with another lawyer for over a year, costing a lot of money and making very little progress towrds
    a divorce settlement. I finally hired Melissa in August, we had a hearing In September, successful mediation in
    October and a final decree in December. She did not let the opposing attorney waste time or unnecessarily complicate the process. She was always respectful of me and my feelings, and kept all interactions with the
    opposition calm, and productive, and did an excellent job of controlling negetive feedback and emotions. She will be working on my will and power of attorney in the near future .

    Melissa was wonderful to work with. She is a great listener and is responsive to your own decisions, but also knows when to give you a little kick when you need it. It was very obvious that she is a well respected member of the Twin Cities legal community when we had to work with opposing counsel and mediators. Her Admin was also terrific! I would highly recommend her to any of my friends.
