Trustworthy smart and strategic lawyer
This firm is creative, responsive, empathetic, tough on opposition, thorough, detailed, super clever, and compassionate. They fight hard for their clients. Highly recommend for anyone with an employment law/discrimination issue! Omar and Suvita, the senior partners, stuck with me during the entire process. They communicated regularly which meant a great deal — I have seen lawyers that go long stretches where the client hears nothing. Even though Omar and Suvita had much bigger cases to tackle. Nevertheless, they made me feel like I was their most important priority. Omar and Suvita gave me their full commitment throughout the process. I never had a moment of disappointment or frustration with them as my lawyers . Omar and Suvita are both trustworthy and honorable. We entered a reasonable settlement; I did not want to head into discovery. Last thought: even the firm’s paralegals are impressively skilled and kind! Thank you so much Melehy & Associates.

Name change
I was looking for information on how to change my name, but not because of marriage. She set my expectations of how long the process would take and sent me the information I would need in order to accomplish my task. I was 30 minutes late for our call and she was nice enough to take my call with no resentment. She was bubbly and informative.
