Custody Case
Melissa was very proficient at explaining what needed to be done, what to expect and how we were going to achieve custody of my brother. She was easily accessible when I had questions and explained the process in terms that were easy to understand. She is not only a competent attorney but a humble, compassionate individual that truly cares for her clients. I would recommend Melissa to any one needs Family Law services.

Dependable & Knowledgeable
My divorce was a HUGE step for me after 15 years of marriage and two little boys. Melissa was flexible in working around my teaching and parenting schedule. When we met on several occasions, she thoughtfully listened, and told me if they were realistic expectations. I never felt rushed in her presence and she walked me through the divorce process explaining what would happen next. She always e-mailed me rough drafts to look through when I had time, give feedback, and we always had thoughtful discussions. I appreciated her time, flexibility, and knowledge. I would recommend her to my friends and family if they needed an attorney in her field.

Custody and Care of Children
My husband and I had a lot of issues with the care of our kids with the other family. Melissa was incredibly realistic with us and she also was very passionate about our case. She definitely went to bat for us more than once. She also spent plenty of time calming my husband down after we received some negative feedback from the other party! She was amazing! We plan to use her for our wills as well since she did such great job!

I cannot say enough good things!
I can't say enough good things about Melissa. She helped me through an incredibly difficult time and I couldn't have asked for a better attorney. She listened thoughtfully, took action, and after seeing her at one of her competitions - I had no doubt how tough she was! I strongly recommend her.

Awesome with high integrity
Melissa is a fantastic attorney and person. She is willing to take extra steps to help those that desperately need it. She is an invaluable asset for your legal issues. Expert in Workers Compensation.

Integrity, Intelligence and Energy
Integrity, Intelligence and Energy are the 3 ingredients of success in a personal or working relationship/partnership. Melissa embodies each of these. I have the utmost respect and trust for her to handle your specific legal needs. It is a pleasure to be able to work and network with her.

Blind Faith
I am from south Texas and I needed an attorney in Kentucky to help me with my comp case. I found Melissa through Mr. Lawrence's office. I have never met with Melissa face to face but she made me feel at ease with all the complicated things with my case. It was amazing that my whole case was settled by phone, letters and email. I am very pleased with Mrs. Doss and the Lawrence firm and all the nice people that helped me through a mountain of paperwork. Thanx guys, Charlie.

See anyone else
Melissa is not a good custody lawyer. You'd be better off seeing someone else.

Don’t hire
Made legal recommendations that cost me thousands of dollars. Made deals with opposing counsel that were not beneficial to me. Please be aware.

"I have worked with Melissa since she was in law school and working part time as my law clerk. My firm hired Melissa as an attorney because she has a keen mind and a tireless work ethic. She is now an outstanding Workers' Compensation attorney with dozens of cases under her belt and more successful resolutions coming in every day. As an attorney, clients like Melissa because she is easy to reach and easy to talk to. Clients often say that Melissa gives them a better understanding of what is going on in their case, and they have confidence in her ability to achieve the best result possible for their case. I whole heartedly endorse Melissa Doss."
