Melissa ensured that the court recognized the issues that were critical to my case and that anything overlooked by other counsel was corrected to support my best interest.
I appreciated her knowledge and commitment to understand the law and the judicial processes.
She is compassionate, while also being fair but firm. These qualities combined are especially helpful when in a vulnerable situation.
I plan to hire Melissa again in the near future.

Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
Melissa is a colleague whom I met when we were opposing counsel on a case. I found her to be a tough but fair opponent, and have had the opportunity to come to know her as highly knowledgeable and very professional. I wholeheartedly endorse her.
