THANK YOU
Melanie is by far the BEST family lawyer. She is extremely professional and understanding. Melanie and her amazing paralegal Tiffany Zayas work very hard and diligently to give their clients a fighting chance and makes sure all options offered is in the clients best interest. They are very detailed oriented and listen to all client complaints. This could have been a exhausting journey, but thanks to this firm the the outcome of my case was more than I have ever expected and I have no one to thank but Melanie and Tiffany. You guys are AWESOME :)

Very professional, my case was supposed to be simple, unfortunately it ended up being more difficult than expected. Melanie and her team explored all options and made it work. Thank you.

Seamless
Very happy I went with Ms. Demps. Both Melanie and her paralegal were able to answer all my questions and got back to me promptly. The whole divorce situation is very awkward in itself and with their help they made it as easy and smooth as I feel it could possibly have gone. I also feel the price was appropriate for all the services they provided. I appreciate all they did to assist me and would highly recommend them.

my divorce with Melanie!
I was referred to the practice that Ms. Demos works for and she helped me out tremendously with getting divorced and with custody of my daughter. She fought hard for what I wanted and in the end successfully won my case. I could not be more satisfied with her services and with the way things turned out.

Custody Matter
I hired Ms. Demps to handle a custody matter. I was very pleased with her level of expertise, the diligence with which she worked to resolve my case and her responsiveness to my correspondence. Her staff was also very professional and courteous.

Looking out for my best interests as a client
Melanie Demps always made me feel like I was her only client by giving me her complete attention in all forms of communication. I could always count on her to remind me of details that I may have forgotten, not to mention I had complete trust in her & never questioned any actions that she took without consulting me first (like telling opposing counsel that we were not willing to go through yet another mediation!) because, based on our previous discussions, I knew that she would give the same answer as if she had asked me. Melanie, her paralegal, & everyone else that I came in contact with at her office were always friendly, helpful, & prompt in assembling & filing any documents as well as making me feel "in the loop" by including me in all communications between us & opposing counsel and/or the courts. Lastly, she was easy to get a hold of when I needed legal advice. Her suggestions never failed to be but the best course of action, whether I wanted to hear it or not, as well as those actions that I never would have considered on my own. The only reason that my case dragged on was because of the other party involved--even though that worked out in my favor!
