    Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community

  • Adam Christopher Gynac

    In my experience, Ms. Melton is a dedicated advocate. She is very focused on obtaining the best possible outcomes for her clients. Sometimes, that means litigating a case all the way to trial; often, that means reaching a settlement mutually beneficial to all parties. Ms. Melton balances negotiation, mediation, and litigation very capably. In my opinion, Ms. Melton is an excellent family law attorney.
