Mr Melton performed his task relating to my case in an extremely adequate, timely and professional manner. He also exhibited a great compassion for my particular circumstance and my overall well being. From the time Mr. Melton became involved in my case I felt confident my case would be given the appropiate attention and consideration. I was at all times kept well informed and treated with respect. At any time I felt comfortable calling his office to speak with him or his staff regarding any questions or concerns. I was at all times made to feel important as a client. Mr. Melton and his staff were also extremely patient and understanding with me during this time when unexpected family situations arose. At all times Mr. Melton and his staff ( in particular Laurie, who was extremely helpful and kind) maintained a high level of professional integrity while showing great compassion.
My particular incident was and has been a life altering occurance therefore it was extremely comforting and reassurring to know i had someone such as Mr. Melton and his staff handling legal matters for me and working on my behalf and looking after my best interest.
I Thank the Lord for sending him into my path at exactly the right time.
I would highly reccommend Mr. Melton

Previously working with a South Florida attorney from a large firm, I discovered that I was not being represented in the manner that I had been initially promised. To add insult to injury, the (over)billing was suspect at best. With limited options and my entire career at stake, I was forced to fire my attorney and turned to Mr. Melton for legal counsel.
My case was complex, comprised of several moving parts, any of which would have required an expert. Mr. Melton was successful in a clarifying what needed to be done in each area of this litigation. The steps that I took, based on his advice, led to quick, affordable closure, and avoided a long, drawn out, expensive legal battle. I would not hesitate to use Mr. Melton again. Additionally, I would not hesitate to refer Mr. Melton to someone seeking competent legal advice.

My wife was rendered a quadriplegic when a tire on our Ford Expedition separated while driving on I-75, causing the vehicle to roll over several times. The right rear tire had been improperly serviced and repaired by the defendants three months before the accident. Attorney Melton won us a 13.6 million dollar verdict. Frank Melton is a unique attorney that actually cares about the person and not about how much profit they can get from the injury. His level of professionalism and commitment is without equal and he was not afraid to take my case all the way to trial. Two thumbs way up for Frank Melton and his team. One of the best attorneys around. I checked out other attorneys who were supposed to have great reputations, great results, and good to work with. Mr. Melton was the only one I felt really confident in. I was proud see him handle my complicated case in front of a jury. Mr. Meltons' staff was also superb. His paralegals respond quickly to calls. The other thing I liked about Mr. Melton is that he is no-nonsense, he doesn't sugar coat anything, but he definitely had my best interests in mind. I would definitely recommend him in a heartbeat!
