Most cost effective divorce option
She is professional, timely, and reasonable. My ex and I figured everything out ourselves and Rebecca drafted the legal docs and filed on our behalf.

Great Representation
I retained Ms. Melone for a family matter after a free consultation. She was very attentive to me and told me what to expect. In the end, she and her staff exceeded my expectations.

Great with follow-up!!!
Called Rebecca on a follow up for a POA she did late last year. She was quick to follow up with me and give me a lot of detailed information. She is a great resource.

Review of Rebecca Melone
Rebecca prepared legal documents including a will, an advance directive and power of attorney. The documents were prepared in a timely manner and included the necessary language for my purposes. I was very happy with the results and would enthusiastically recommend Rebecca to others.

Impressive young professional
Rebecca Melone changed my previous history with my ex husband from bitter, negative and stressful to positive, respectful and promising present! My Ex and I divorced 15 yrs ago, we have two children together and since the separation he fought me on every little and big thing, he hired expensive lawyers and shut me down any time I tried to fight back. Kids were miserable, I was frustrated and stressed on a daily basis. I did not have the money resources to keep up with my ex, and when I got remarried 4 yrs later, I gave up as my new husband was amazing to the kids and so generous with his income, I thought, no need to keep the fighting. A traumatic event followed by a 2nd divorce 5 yrs ago forced me to get back to court with my kids father. I was desperate for a smart, vibrant lawyer to represent me. I did so much researches and after couple of interviewed, I went with Rebecca and I was pleasantly surprised about the level of work she did to get me what I asked for. My ex realized that he was in trouble and could not keep up with his expensive lawyer's fees, he had to switch and hired a less pricey lawyer and him and his new attorney were pushed to settle the day before court!! Rebecca kept calm, advised me every step of the way, was firm negotiating and got me 95% of all what I asked for ( Visitation, support, rules...). Kids are couple of years from turning 18 yrs now (we settled a year ago), and so far my Ex kept great attitude and never messed with me again. Thanks Rebecca, you ROCK.

Best attorney I have ever worked with.
Rebecca is very knowledgeable and helped me with a cross state custody case. She is very easy to work with, got things done quickly, and helped me get the results I was looking for.

Uncontested Divorce
A friend recommended Rebecca Melone and I am so blessed and grateful that I took her advice. I hired Rebecca to handle my uncontested divorce 2/17/17. I provided all the paperwork needed to proceed with my case (after a previous lawyer I hired mishandled my case and now facing criminal charges / de-barr), and as of today's court hearing I am officially divorced! I paid a total of $425.00 and wanted to provide this review because after dealing with so so much stress and anxiety, I got my wish. I am finally done with this chapter. Thank you so much Rebecca for expediting and taking care of me. Many blessing's, abundance, and prosperity to you!

Beyond excellence
This wonderful lawyer was the best lawyer I have ever had. She was polite, caring and most of all knowledgeable about my case. In short, she resolved the issue in timely matter. I also had a peace of mind from the beginning until the end.

Excellent
She was the only attorney that was more interested in my case then she was fees. That, was super important to me. My situation was a brutal one. And after meeting her about my case I felt immediately more confident.

Excellent attorney
I was seeking for an attorney to help me with my child custody/support and Ms. Melone was great. Right from the beginning, she responded very promptly and professionally. She listened to everything I had to say and gave me great honest advice on all concerns I had. At the end everything turned out in my favor. She was awesome!

Suceessful Divorce Case
My lawyer filed my divorce case on my behalf. At the time, I was out of United States , so she initially informed me that I would have to put in an appearance in court to finalize the divorce. Later, she informed me that I do not have to rush over if I haven't finish with what I was doing and that I should get my documents notarized and sent it over for the process. She filed, and got my divorce through for me. Throughout the process, she keep informing me of the status. Good job done

Ongoing Custody Issue
For the past 5 years, I have been in and out of court for custody issues. Now that I'm getting married and my daughter will be starting school in the fall, I was served with a motion for a temporary schedule and given less than a week's notice to find an attorney. Thankfully Rebecca was available to represent and support me through this incredibly emotional and stressful time. With Rebecca's legal experience and guidance, I was able to make a decision that was best for my daughter long term and helped to ensure that her weekly schedule was not impacted. As stressful as going to court is, this was by far my best experience and I was so glad to have Rebecca by my side! I would highly recommend Rebecca to anyone looking for a Family Law Lawyer!!

Estate Planning
My husband and I were gifted an estate planning package with Rebecca. She explained every detail, answered all of our questions, and was an overall delight to work with. She walked us through the process and made everything so easy on our end. Would absolutely recommend her to anyone doing estate planning.
