She worked fast
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.

You can't afford to not have her on your side
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.

Took the worry off my shoulders
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!

Melody is incredible.
I was in a car accident where going through a green light I was t-boned. I received Melody's name through a friend. She was at the hospital when I had to have surgery and stayed by my side through the entire process. She stayed in contact with the defense lawyer and made sure to send all documentation in a timely manner. Having her by my side gave me comfort and the knowledge that she will fight for me. Melody is incredibly compassionate and very caring. She is for the people and will fight for you no matter what. I would highly recommend Melody to anyone.

Car Accident
I would hire Melody again in an instant! Melody provided excellent counsel when my insurance company tried to settle my case for next to nothing. She took over and handled all of the medical and accident paperwork, thus relieving my paperwork nightmare. Once Melody reviewed all of the details of my case, she was able to settle my case with the insurance company after one deposition. After several meetings with the insurance company's lawyers, we received the full policy maximum.

Very responsive
I hired Ms. Manning to help me with a small claim this past year. She took the time to explain everything to me and walked me through step by step to a resolution.
