Melanie has been an amazing lawyer throughout the entire process. I have been falsely accused and she has been fighting to prove my innocence always trying to be one step ahead. I would recommend her for any and all legal matters! Her legal team that assists her are also top notch, you will not find a better lawyer in the area who will be compassionate but also knows when to buckle down and fight!

Ms. Bean is an excellent attorney, both inside and outside the courtroom. I have used her for almost 6 years before, during, and after my divorce. What I appreciate about her the most is that she keeps me informed and allows me to make educated decisions throughout the process. Divorce isn't just about going to court; sometimes it's about settling. She is an excellent negotiator and can be tough, defending your interests. Her paralegal staff is also incredible and dependable. Ms. Bean's fees are also quite reasonable. Considering the quality of representation you receive from her, I would strongly recommend her to anyone needing legal representation.

I was having a very hard time in my life and I needed Melanie's services. It was hard for me to even get support from my family. But she helped me see that I had rights and it gave me hope. Everything turned out good for me and I am getting back to my normal life. I am so glad I took a friend's recommendation and went to Melanie.

When it comes to Divorce and/or Child Custody matters, look no further. Mrs. Bean is a bulldog in the court room and has the knowledge and experience to back it up. If you are getting divorced in Wilson County hire Mrs. Bean. If you do not, hope that your former spouse didn't either.
