Melvin was excellent at explaining the process of creating a will, POA, and medical POA to me. He walked me through every legal aspect of these documents. I needed the documents to be completed quickly, and he went the extra mile of preparing the documents later that night, expediting them for me to sign in a 24-hour period. He was courteous, respectful, professional, efficient, and well, simply amazing! He also met me at my bank so that I could have 2 notary publics witness my signing of the documents and so that I could put the originals in my safe deposit box at the bank. I couldn't have asked for a better lawyer or a better experience.

We needed our wills and powers of attorney updated due to life changes. We found Melvin via a web search and relied on the quality of Melvin's website and user reviews.
While our work was simple Melvin treated it--and us--as if we were the only priority he had. The work was quickly completed, was exactly what we wanted, and provides clear and exact guidance for our family. His price structure is both fair and reasonable.
We are experienced consumers with high expectations and feel fortunate to have come across Melvin's help. If we needed business advice he would our first choice.

Melvin gave me bad information regarding probate. It was a red flag indicating his lack of knowledge regarding probate law. Every document he sent me was riddled with typos and errors of content. He did not proofread anything that left his office. There was a reckless disregard for accuracy and honesty. He spent very little time on my case but charged the maximum. I had to fire him before the estate was settled.

I was looking for a lawyer who could help me draft a will for myself and Mel was just the right person. He walked me through all the steps to putting together a will. He asked just the right questions so he understood precisely how I wanted my will drafted. Mel took the time to explain my different options; what I could include in my will and what I needed to do with investments, retirement, and insurance. He was very through and I felt he genuinely had my best interest in mind.

We hired Melvin Shaw to construct and edit our Wills. He was thorough and provided a wealth of knowledge. His personality helped to make the difficult task of writing a Will a positive experience. Each time we have met with Melvin, he remembers details about each of us and our daughter.
My husband has also used Melvin for business matters. Again, his knowledge and expertise was just what we needed.
I have and will continue to highly recommend Melvin Shaw without any hesitation.

We met with Melvin to do our will. He was very professional. He paid attention to detail and took down our information accurately. He explained the process of writing a will in a way that was easy for us to understand. He was prompt in getting the will to us for us to review and in getting an appointment scheduled to sign it. He was very humble throughout the whole process, asking us if we had any questions and thanking us for choosing him to do the work.

We were referred to Mr. Shaw in order to update our wills. We also added Power of Attorney and Medical Power of Attorney documents. We found Mr. Shaw to be both personable and professional. We felt that he provided us with appropriate expertise and performed his duties in a timely manner. We would have no trouble recommending him to friends or family.

Having a will written seemed like a complicated and difficult task, but Melvin O. Shaw made it quick, easy, and relatively painless (it is still thinking about what happens when you or a loved one dies, afterall). He patiently answered all of our questions as he walked us through the decisions that needed to be made, and had resources to share for the decisions we weren't able to make in the moment. But most importantly, he made us feel comfortable throughout the process (which I had been dreading and put off for years!).
I'm sure many lawyers could have accomplished the legal requirements for writing our wills - but the warmth, the ease in conversation and quick response to our needs, was far from typical. I'm thankful for the referral that brought us to his office!

I was referred to Melvin by another attorney because I needed help with a real estate transaction that was more complicated than usual. Melvin patiently answered my many questions, responded to calls promptly and took good care details. The transaction went very smoothly. He is now my attorney should I have need in the future.
