I hired Melody for a simple breach of contract case. Melody is inexperienced and has taken on too many cases. She is too concerned with profit and gave me substandard service. She let my case drag on for years, failed to communicate and then she withdrew when she realized she could be liable for bad advice she gave. If you are looking for a good attorney, I would suggest you keep on looking.

I heard about Melody through a friend of mine and after reaching my wits end with so many lawyers that didn't deliver, I decided to meet with her in hopes that she would be different. She was very refreshing. Melody didn't waste time pretending and sugar coating, she got right down to it and told me what exactly was possible and what would be a waste of time and money. She said, and I quote, " I'm a Christian woman so I'm going to be honest with you, I can sit here and tell you everything you want to hear and say that I can make things happen that wont and take your money like most lawyers would, or I can be honest with you." I had been waiting to find someone who would actually set aside their financial gain and tell me the truth and that's what I got. I would recommend her to anyone and in fact I already have.

I am writing this recommendation based on my professional association with C. Melody Edwardo this year (2012). I hired Ms. Edwardo to represent me in a traffic case. I have found Ms. Edwardo to be honest and straightforward in her approach to her legal business. She has demonstrated a high degree of loyalty and trustworthiness. She kept me informed of any particular paperwork that was needed from my end and did so in a timely manner. Ms. Edwardo carried out her obligations with vigor and resolve. I would recommend her without reservation.
