The mission of the firm is to help individuals with the specific legal problem. If the firm cannot help you, we will find you a qualified attorney in your area that can.
The goal of the firm is to help professionals navigate the divorce process while focusing on what is important - their children. All too often children are caught in a tug-of-war between divorcing parents. We educate clients on better ways to co-parent post-divorce and allow their children to enjoy the childhood years.
My passion lies in protecting all civil rights granted to us by the Bill of Rights. The Second Amendment is what protects the other rights enumerated in the Bill of Rights. It is my goal to help firearm owners protect their assets and their rights, whether we handling a divorce, drafting a gun trust, or defending against criminal charges. I consider what the consequences on Second Amendment rights will be when considering plea deals in criminal cases. It does matter who represents you when your Second Amendment rights are on the line.

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.
