4.5 stars 10 totalReview Melissa Smejkal
Melissa was very professional, knew what she was doing, and defended me to a good end result. It was the best experience I could have asked for working with her. Thank you again!
I emailed Melissa Smejkal on Saturday, right next morning after a violation vas committed. She promptly responded. I decided to hire her and later I understood that I made a right decision. I submitted all needed information per her request, so we actually met in a front of a court room. I suppose, she arrived long I did. Then, Melissa informed me that the decision seems to be a very appropriate. In a few minutes she introduced me to the judge. Approximately, I spend about 5 minutes in front of a judge and was very happy with a decision the judge made, because I was charged for a regular speeding. I appreciate Melissa's effort a lot and would sincerely recommend this lawyer to others.

With Melissa’s expertise my traffic case was resolved with a better outcome than I could have imagined. She was fast to respond to my questions and concerns and it was of great comfort to walk before the judge knowing I had the help of an experienced advocate.
I recommend her counsel without hesitation.

I was so worried about my case because I had a prior record and wanted to avoid jail time, Melissa was very caring, on time, assured me that everything would be ok, and she was absolutely right. she showed up to court before I did and handled everything. she walked me through every step and what was going to happen. I couldn't be more happy with the result. I had stumbled across her profile on Avvo by mistake and read all the positive reviews, I'm so glad I did! I would definitely use her services again if needed and would highly recommend her to anyone. In my opinion she is an excellent Lawyer, thank you Melissa for everything!

I tend to dis-agree with the previous reviewer. She showed up at the court room 30 minutes before the judge showed up and explained to me what she was going to do. I was present in the court for less than 5 minutes after the judge showed up. She helped me avoid a conviction being entered into my driving record

Do not waste your time. Very responsive but poor defense with no effort. A whole lot of there's nothing that can be done and had to file a complaint due to her not showing up. I repeat do not waste your time

Would definitely recommend Attorney Melissa Smejkal.
Responded to initial e-mail that same day.
I was pretty sure I would be fined, she was able to have the case dismissed altogether.
She appeared on my behalf, and I don't even have any court fines.
Overall, I am very satisfied.

I was seeking legal advice and Melissa was the best, most professional response I recieved. That professionalism and responsiveness carried over into her handling of my case. She made everything simple--communicated through email (which I preferred) and was kind, courteuous and professional in person! I highly reccommend her!

Ms. Melissa handled my retail theft case and I was very happy that I choose her for my case.
We always have so many questions in our mind when there's a case against you.
But she was always there to listen to you and gives you proper and positive reply.
She works more as a friend come lawyer.
Definitely recommend her.
Thanks a lot Ma'm.
