  • Melvin Richard Welch

    I've had the great pleasure of being Mr. Colich's adversary on numerous serious felony matters when I was a prosecutor. I paid close attention to how he excellently represented his clients and have modeled my own practice on his impeccable style. While I compete with Mr. Colich for business, he holds my sincere and absolute admiration.
