Melissa is a true professional. She was very thorough, dedicated and committed to bring resolution to my case with a positive outcome. I would recommend Melissa with no reservations. You won't be disappointed in her and her work ethic.

Melissa was extremely professional and helpful. I was pleased with her work ethic and dedication to my case. I was so impressed because on a Saturday about noon she called with questions, Melissa was at the office working! I would not hesitate to hire Melissa for any professional or personal issue. Her staff was also very helpful and friendly.
