Working with Melanie was great! She was very professional, genuine, gregarious and most importantly, helpful. I highly recommend her.

I hired Melanie in 2010 to defend a simple speeding ticket. I had no other offenses, and no points on my license. Melanie's efforts yielded no reduction in points, nor any reduction in fees. EXACTLY the same result I would have achieved if I had kept the $1,000 I wasted on Melanie's fee & pleaded guilty. I have no idea what she did to inspire the judge to be so unyielding, and Melanie refused to give me any account of the trial. There are no guarantees in court, but she behaved in what I consider to be a highly unprofessional manner afterwards, refusing to talk to me and denying that she was a recent grad with little experience. I regret hiring her, and hopefully she has learned her craft better by now, but I'd advise against hiring her for anything important.
