I think Melinda is a fantastic lawyer. She knows her stuff and will do anything to help her clients. If I ever need a lawyer for anything else, I will definitely be calling her again...

Melinda O'Dell is a professional in every way. She believes in her clients and puts everything she can into giving them the best representation possible. My divorce case was settled quickly and as I had wished it would go. She definitely puts her client's best interests first.

Melinda handled my divorce and guided me through a difficult time. My "ex" wanted to play lots of games, cause delays, and fight over things that were non-issues...and unfortunately her attorney had no control and allowed the game-playing to go on. I had no stomach for the games, and Melinda backed me up completely on that. After months of delays, Melinda sternly put her foot down and was able to get opposing counsel to back-off and finally bring our divorce to a close......with the terms that I had originally asked for months earlier! I would (and have) wholeheartedly recommend Melinda to friends who need help in similar situations!!
