I would tell anyone that wanted to use Melinda that she is very knowledgable, and intelligent, but her staff is not organized, they don't get back to you, or follow through with what you ask. For instance, I asked that they PLEASE inform me when my ex husband was served with papers, but noone did, so I looked stupid, not knowing. At the consultation, I gave her 1500 dollars and she didn't start on my case, for 6 + weeks, and it took me calling the office, and telling them I needed a refund, because they wouldn't do anything, they finally did then. My case did not go to court, which Is where I hear she excels, but she did well about knowing what you could ask for and what you couldn't, and being realilistic, which was nice to work with. The rest of it, I cant praise to much.
