I was injured in an accident where the person that hit me didn't have very much insurance. Melody stayed closely on top of my bills so that she could maximize the recovery to me. I appreciated that she was involved every step of the way and I would highly reccomend her to anyone.

Sharp, tenacious, and knowledgeable, but also a caring professional. I'm glad I don't have to go against her in court, and I'm lucky to have her in my corner. The title of the review says it all - you can't afford not to have her on your side, and whether you're at mediation or trial you'll be glad she's at the table with you.

I had a very complicated auto accident case and many companies to deal with while also trying to heal from my injuries. Melody took on my case and lifted the worry off my shoulders. She was able to successfully negotiate a settlement for me with a full payout from the other guy's iauto insurance without having to go to trial. She kept me well informed along the entire journey and discussed the risks and advantages with me at every decision point. I knew what was being paid out of my settlement and was quickly able to pick up my check once her office received the funds. I would definitely recommend Melody and will certainly hire her again if the situation arises. Thanks for all of your hard work, professionalism and care!
