Melissa Graham-Hurd is an excellent attorney. She came highly recommended from several other attorneys so has the respect of her peers. In addition, she knows both the law and the Summit court system and its people very well which is a notable advantage. She is highly professional and always stayed on top of when things were due and when we needed to appear in court. My divorce was very contentious and went on for several years including going to the Court of Appeals so we got to know each well. She took time to answer my numerous questions about the law and what would happen in court. She was also willing to fight for what I wanted but would provide me valuable feedback when she thought what I was requesting would not be to my advantage. She did a phenomenal job presenting my case to both the Domestic Relations Court and Court of Appeals. I highly recommend her services.

When I went looking for a divorce lawyer I was overwhelmed. I read a lot of profiles and one word stood out when I read Melissa's. Compassionate. I was a mess and needed a strong, experienced, yet compassionate attorney. I also did not want to find myself paying for needless hours of attorney fees and a bill equal to my years salary.
My first and second meeting with Melissa were fact finding missions. When it came time to pull the trigger, I knew I was in good hands and that all would be handled efficiently and at a very reasonable billing. Between Melissa and her staff, my timely needs and requests were filled to the letter. I would highly recommend Melissa to any man or woman needing a compassionate, experienced, strong and fair attorney in their corner.

She was a disorganized mess. I fired her. Recommend you meet her before hiring. I hired her from the internet reviews. I think these must be bogus reviews. She is the worst!
