Mel gave me great legal advice. He was reasonable with the fees and really reassured me of what my options were and the benefits and reprocussions of my decision. I would suggest anyone with real estate issues to consult Melvin Shaw!

From the consultation to the signing of documents Melvin was very easy to talk with and made me feel comfortable during the planning of my end-of life wishes and estate. I never thought I would be so emotional during this process and Melvin calmness and patience with me was remarkable. It seems like I asked 1001 questions and he answered them all without ever once seeming frustrated. What I like most is his responsiveness to my questions and his compassion for what he does. He's not your typical lawyer he has a great sense of humor and was delightful to work with. His prices were very reasonable and there were no surprise cost. I have recommended Melvin to family and friends and I would recommend him to all. Melvin really is an Awesome & Amazing person and lawyer

We retained Mr. Shaw as our lawyer to draw up Power of Attorney documents and wills for my fiancé and I. Mr. Shaw was very professional, friendly and patient during the entire process. He answered all of our questions and interpreted all wording in a way in which we could understand. And gave great advice throughout the process. What could have been a very painful and confusing process was quick and easy! I definitely recommend!

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.
