Out of nowhere my wife handed me dissolution papers. She had been dealing with a lawyer and was wanting me to sign the papers. I needed a lawyer fast, so I contacted Melissa’s firm. They did an over the phone consultation (covid restrictions were in effect at the time). They listened to my story and said they could help. Throughout the process they explained things to me and helped me to not get taken advantage of. They were very good at responding to emails and phone calls, and were always very helpful. After the dissolution was finalized and the case “closed” they have been available to me to answer some other questions that I have had. I am very happy with their service would definitely use them again should the need arise. I highly recommend them.

I worked mostly with Erin; she was able to help me (the father) get 50/50 custody of my two girls. They work very hard for father rights and are easy to get ahold of when questions arise.

After moving back to Ohio after living out of state, both my husband and I needed to prepare new wills, as well as POA forms. Because of the Covid pandemic, we were nervous about how we could safely achieve this.
After contacting Melissa Graham-Hurd and Associates, we were pleased to find that our first consultation could be handled through video conferencing. The process was easy and fast.
We were able to read and accept the drafts online, and then arranged for an appointment in the office. During the visit for signing, we were very happy that all associates wore masks, and social distancing was practiced.
The whole experience was very pleasant. We enjoyed the kind explanations of terms, some of which were new to us, and we were happy to meet the staff. Overall - a very good experience.

I found Melissa by looking online for attorneys that specialized in family law. I am a grandparent and very close to my grandchildren, but was not getting to see my grandchildren due to a rather messy divorce between my son and former daughter-in-law. Melissa and Erin helped represent me prior to and during the divorce hearing to make sure that my voice was heard, too. They were professional and kept me updated though emails and sent copies all new court documents immediately after receiving them. Melissa also worked well with my son's attorney who had nothing but good things to say about her.

Melissa was excellent. She was able to take my case on a short notice and guide me through every step. She was very responsive and easily reachable, she answered all my questions throughout the process thoroughly. Melissa is very knowledgeable thanks to her extensive experience in family law. She was also able to see ahead of any potential problem areas and prepare for it. She is very courteous and professional in her guidance which focused on content, structure and process. I would definitely recommend her and her team to anyone!

I live out of state and found Attorney Graham-Hurd on the AVVO website. From the very first consultation with her, I knew I had connected with the right lawyer to represent me on my divorce. I had a complicated divorce that lasted a few years and in addition, was the complexities of having to navigate it from another state. Melissa represented me very well. She was extremely strategic, competent, always prepared for our meetings, she responded quickly to any questions I had, and was extremely thorough in which she conducted her investigations and wrote up her briefs. At every step, she was transparent and really did her very best to represent me. I had a positive outcome and I don't believe the outcome could have been any better. I can't say anything negative about her and I would not hesitate to hire her again. She was simply outstanding.

I can’t thank your team enough for your help. Everyone at your office is friendly & professional. Erin & Melissa were thorough, knowledgeable & set realistic expectations. They were not afraid to fight for me, but we were able to settle out of court with a better result than I expected thanks to their negotiation skills. I will certainly use Melissa Graham-Hurd & Associates if I need an attorney in the future.

I will never be able to thank Melissa and Erin enough for their kindness, professionalism, and dedication to my case. It was a very long 2.5 year battle, but the outcome was more than I could have ever hoped for. They have always responded to emails very quickly. I was amazed at the fact that they remembered every detail of my case, even things I had trouble recalling. If you ever feel you are in a position where custody of your child needs to change, I highly recommended you contact them! They will advocate for you and your child, while always being honest with you about what is in your best interest.

Melissa and her team were very professional and kind through the entire divorce process. Her team was always available and responded lightning fast to any questions I had. Melissa laid out our plan from the beginning and never pushed an agenda to bump up costs. I can't say enough about her and her team. Kind and passionate and always took the fair route. If you are looking for a lawyer with experience and who understands the process, look no further. Melissa is HIGHLY recommended!
