Melissa represented me for several years in a very contentious matter. Throughout the entire process she was professional in her work, responsive to my inquiries, and exceeded all of my expectations. Should I ever encounter the need for legal representation in the future, without hesitation I will retain the services of Melissa and her firm.
Melissa Bower is a very personable, smart, thoughtful, organized, talented, strong, and competent attorney. When she agreed to represent me in my divorce/custody case, she was very honest about what to expect and addressed the realities of the potential outcomes. She kept me well informed throughout the case and handled every detail with great professionalism. While she is a kind person, she is aggressive, organized, and performs exceptionally well in the courtroom. She is fair and honest, and did not tell me what I wanted to hear all the time, but offered sound and reasonable advice, which was what my very intense and horrible case required/needed. Due to her sound representation and knowledge/experience with the dynamics of family law, the outcome of the case was beyond my expectations and my child is safe and in my custody. I highly recommend her to anyone who would like a caring, honest, reliable, and strong attorney.
