Review Melissa Kelleigh

About Me

I am an attorney with over 10 years of experience.  For the past several years, my focus has been exclusively on family law matters.  I help my clients with issues of divorce, child custody, parenting time, child support, and family abuse protection orders.  As a parent myself, I understand how important these issues are to my clients.  I view my job as a compassionate guide through a complex legal system that can be difficult for non-lawyers to navigate on their own.  I try to resolve these issues as amicably as possible, although I have taken many cases to trial when it is necessary and appropriate to do so.
