The best lawyer in the business. Period.
Melynda is brilliant, sharp, very skilled, tested and compassionate attorney. We adore her. She saved our lives. She held our hands through a frightening nightmarish time. She was understanding, has years of experience and was able to be correctly predict the outcome. She knows the prosecutors and judges and is able to assess quickly what will happen. She is a Mom and she understands a mother's heart. She will not judge you and she will fight hard for you, like a bulldog on steroids. She is a warrior, fierce, professional, calm and dignified as she presents in the courtroom. Melynda will be a judge one day soon, I predict because the system needs judges ike her. Hire her now quickly before that happens. She is the best there is out there. Everyone else is second best. Enough said.

Client Review
She was a court appointed attorney and was not very good at communication. Did not ask many questions or communicate often. She waited till the last minute for everything and eventually lost the case. I believe if she would have interacted more and prepared sooner she could have won the case.

HANNAH WESCHE
Melynda is the worst attorney this world has to offer and nobody should recommend her. She is by no means a good person and that is proven in the Hannah Wesche case. She is only good at defending horrific people. If you ask me this lady should be behind bars with the many disgusting individuals she has stood up for.

Horrible
If you have seen this lawyer in court I wouldn’t be surprised you think she’s bad. Not only she defends sexual predators but also child murderers. The way she conducts herself in court I’m very surprised she’s still allowed to practice.

For the incorrect one
One awful review showed five stars and that must be an error. My rating is based upon the way she treated a child named Hannah’s father in court. TY

Just watch her in court and you’ll see why
Melyndas screaming antics in court are what happens when you have no skills as an attorney but you’re desperately grasping at straws to try to prove you were worth hiring. Her trying to mess up witness timelines is so obvious and laughable, her condescending and very obviously gaslighting tone is so disgusting but also laughable. This attorney was no smarter than the woman being prosecuted whom she was “defending”. Hey melynda if you read this, screaming at a victim/witness in court won’t win you a case. Hire this clown if you want the worst possible conviction.

Terrible attorney and person.
Terrible attorney. Has no respect for anyone for the witnesses or victims. She only knows how to yell to force people to agree with her. Very unprofessional.

Horrible
If you want to win DO NOT HIRE THIS WOMAN. She's more interested in blatantly harassing witnesses and yelling over the clients needs and wants. She will lose your case by angering the judge and jury after telling them theyre too stupid to know the truth. If i could get my money back i would use it to file a suit against her for being inept and incompetent. Im begging, dont make the same mistake I did, hire someone else. You can't even give honest reviews with your name without her coming after you and threatening to release information you gave her in confidence so ill be leaving this anonymously to save myself the grief.
