Excellent Attorney
Melissa was highly recommended to me by an attorney. I am so glad I hired her to handle my Bankruptcy case, considering that I was in middle of divorce in 2015 and property was involved, so let's face it, I was terrified, considering that divorce attorney's and judge were watching my steps, and anxiously were waiting for the results. In beginning of 2016 my case was approved. Personally I was skeptical, nervous of loosing the property, but Melissa was right there with me, she was on top of everything that bankruptcy court communicated and she knew the steps, and always professional, calm and she truly understood how bad/complicated my situation was. She has inspired me in so many ways; considering that she's young, dedicated and she has plenty of experience on her line of work. I would highly recommend Melissa Conner as your bankruptcy attorney. She held my hand through the process and was very understanding of my financial and overall situation. Bankruptcy was the last thing ever that I thought would happen to me, but life is unpredictable. Melissa gave me a brand new beginning that I much needed it. Bankruptcy is a fresh new start in life. I will always highly recommend Melissa for her knowledge of law and for her dedication to each clients and case. Thank you very much Melissa and I wish you only the best.

Melissa is wonderful! She was kind and understanding during my case. She explained things without talking down to me, and all of my interactions with her were pleasant. I really appreciated her help and support through this distressing time.

Bankruptcy
I was financially over my head in debt. I needed legal advise, so I googled *Affordable Bankruptcy Attorneys* and Melissa Conner popped up. My initial consultation went GREAT, I left her office with a checklist of things I needed to complete and return to her. Melissa explained EVERYTHING to me, I never left her office confused, unsure or angry. Melissa was extremely trustworthy, compassionate, honest and knowledgeable when we decided bankruptcy was the best solution for me! (5) STARS Melissa.....THANK YOU

A bad time made better
Mellisa, first I would like to thank you. THANK YOU. You made a very bad time in my life a lot easier. I was very sick for for a lot of years medically and became flat broke and the expenses piled up to a point of no return and legal issues came next. After being threatened with jail,for not being able to pay, I found mellisa. She took me and my financial mess into a different direction. She listened to my problems and came up with a plan. She went after these problems and fixed everything. She is very smart and clearly paid attention in law school and knows her business. I highly recommend her
