    • I recommend Melanie Butler.
    • I hired Melanie 1-3 years ago.
    • Melanie handled my Employment & Labor matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    I have employed the services of Melanie Butler Esq. twice and on both occasions I have received excellent service. Ms. Butler provided me with a detailed and comprehensive analysis of my situation. She provided all the necessary documents that were needed in order to expedite my case. She was always readily available to answer my questions and never made me feel that any of my queries were unnecessary or superfluous. Ms. Butler put my mind at ease and took care of matters in a clear and concise way as we were preparing to present my case to the judge. She was always fully prepared and knowledgeable and handled herself in a professional manner. The prices for her services are very reasonable and, needless to say, I highly recommend her as an honest and astute lawyer who will work very hard and do everything in her power to ensure a positive outcome.

      Lawyer Comment:

      Due to unforeseen circumstances, I needed to close my firm abruptly at the beginning of 2012. All clients with open cases were referred to another attorney and/or given refunds.

    Ms. Butler was very thorough when handling my case. She was trustworthy, keeping my information confidential, consistent about keeping me up to date and respectful of my situation. She made every effort to find a solution to every problem that confronted her to the best of her ability. Ms. Butler is someone I would highly recommend to those individuals in need of a competent attorney.
