Melissa was very accessible and prompt in everything she did for us. We had tax issues that were above our heads in what to do, but she knew all the ins and outs of the system and knew exactly what to do for us. She was relentless and diligent and wouldn't quit until we had everything settled.

A definite recommendation!
I would recommend Melissa to anyone! I've never left a review, but am glad to leave one for her. I hired Melissa to help me with a tax issue I had been battling with for 11 years without resolution. She was my third attorney, and was an A+. She was relentless in trying to get me the best result possible while protecting me at the same time. There would be no way to achieve the result I did without someone with her knowledge and experience. She did exactly what she said she would do, and being a business owner, I've definitely had the opposite experience with attorneys on other matters. My issue is settled and at a much better result than I anticipated. I would say I would hire her again, but since I've already set up a meeting with her for estate planning, it would be a little redundant! Hire her with full confidence, she's definitely worth recommending.

Takes care of business.
I have been a client of Melissa's for the past 3 to 4 years. She has assisted me with my tax situation. Due to her experiences in handling these types of tax matters, I now have a comprehensive plan that I can manage and work with moving forward. She is a no nonsense person who gets it done.
