After being married for 14 1/2 years and having two teenage boys divorce is extremely complicated. I met with three attorneys, Ross Meltzer being the third. We got started by just talking for about 20 minutes and I appreciated his relaxed warm style. I was hesitant as he is young but I read some reviews which interested me, and sure enough I am thankful I did find and choose him.
He helped me navigate a very tricky situation and in the end I could not be more happy with the judgment ordered. I thought I knew what I was doing in handling it my self and quite frankly did not want to fork over a few thousand dollars to hire a lawyer. What I paid Ross is literally a small fraction of what I would have lost had I not had his insight. His fees are very reasonable and I never felt "on the clock". The amount he asked for up front was more than I expected, but he did not ever ask me for a dime more, nor did I ever feel that he favored getting paid over helping me and my children have the best outcome.
The future of my and my children lives is so much better off thanks to his insights, and expertise. I have completely regained the ability to take care of and raise my children in a safe, happy, and healthy environment.
I wholeheartedly recommend Ross Meltzer to provide you with exceptional services in the matters of divorce, custody, child support and alimony/ spousal support. I respect him, his knowledge and his work! Thank you again Ross!
Ross is an extremely good lawyer. His fees are reasonable and he knows what he is doing. He took care of a custody case that had been started by another attorney but the other attorney botched it up big time. I live out of state and Ross excelled at both keeping me informed as to what was going on and was always available to answer my questions, even after hours. He was 100% honest with me and was a complete professional. I highly recommend him and will use him again should the need arise.
Ross's ability to communicate and address my issues was outstanding..He explained all of my options and gave me the best advise to achieve the outcome I had hoped for..His patience and compassion for his client's outcome is evident and admirable. He is prompt (always) to return calls and messages which was very reassuring to me. His knowledge of law and the courts made my case . I appreciate his work on this case and will be using him on a future matter..
Ross Meltzer is a smart and honest man, who believes in justice. When I first met him (in jail), he seemed rather small, young, and not at all like a serious lawyer . I was expecting a bigger, older lawyer... a TV lawyer, I guess. It was a family member who hired his services on my behalf, so I did not know what I would be getting.
Ross listened to me and explained all my options. He was non-judgmental, and took on my case for a reasonable fee. I certainly made his job pretty difficult by giving a full confession to the cops and cooperating with them. His partner took over my case after my initial arraignment, but Ross Meltzer continued to provide support, and sound legal advice.
He was instrumental in finding me the right Therapist, without whom, my case results might have gone in a different direction. He is pretty resourceful, and smart. His knowledge of the law is full and complete, and I would rely on his legal advice.
He and his partner were able to resolve my case successfully with positive results. I believe that justice has been served.
I am glad that I chose Mr. Meltzer as my lawyer.
At first, his partner was handling my case, so I was a little worried when Mr. Meltzer told me he is going to take over my case.
But he was as nice and responsible as his partner and did get the resault I was hoping for.
I can't thank him enough.
The fee was very reasonable.
I definately recommend him to enyone who neeeds a lawyer :)
Ross was totally competent in handling my case and his good communication skills made my experience the best under the circumstances.
I hired Ross to finish my divorce because the first lawyer I hired was not representing me at all. Ross went out of his way to help me and explained all my options to help me have the best outcome for my case.
I did something really dumb and needed a criminal attorney. I was embarrassed and really wanted to get the situation behind me. Ross listened, heard my situation and resolved the issue quickly. The result was even better then I could have hoped for and I would call him again if I ever need legal services.
He helped resolve my case, kept me informed, and his fees were reasonable
Most of the time you call and it takes days to get a reply, or you get voice mail or a receptionist.Ross Meltzer actually anwered his phone. He listened to my situation but unfortuantely he is in N. CA but I'm in S. Ca. Yet he searched for a referral and took the time to understand my case.
