Melissa was wonderful to work with! She helped me through a particularly scary divorce and ensured that our decree included numerous measures to keep my son and I safe from my now ex-husband. She has helped me with many issues, big and small, since the divorce regarding co-parenting. I also really appreciated her help with wording and other things involving communication with my ex-husband.
Words can not describe what having Melissa in my corner meant to me.
I was a wreck after being surprised one evening by someone at my door serving me a petition to modify the custody arrangement my ex and I agreed to just a year prior. As a single father fighting to keep primary custody of my two children I knew the odds were stacked against me. But after doing a lot of research and a couple of interviews with other attorneys I found myself meeting with Melissa and I hired her immediately. I left that meeting KNOWING everything was going to be ok, and I was right. Every phone call was answered immediately, every e-mail was promptly replied to, and if I needed some face time I got it.
She is the one you want in your corner. If you find yourself looking across the courtroom and she's on the other side, be nervous...very nervous.
Ms. Cook was a godsend to my case. She inspired confidence that I needed to make it through one of the most terrifying times in my life. She provided creative solutions that have helped me become a better parent in addition to sound, realistic family legal advise. She put my children first and worked tirelessly on my case to ensure the best possible outcome.
