Great lawyer. She helped my son with a criminal issue. She knew what she was doing, she always explained everything, was always on time for court, and was very compassionate. She was able to resolve his case in a favorable way.

Melissa is an excellent litigator. In her most recent felony trial, her cross examination of the main witness resulted in an acquittal for her client. I highly recommend Melissa.
