Hello, I am attorney Melisa D. Ludeman and welcome to my AVVO profile.  Avvo is a great resource for those who want basic legal advice or maybe even to find a lawyer.

I represent clients being sued by debt collection companies and credit cards.  I limited these case to the Western side of Missouri and unfortunately am not taking clients in Kansas.

I also help people with traffic tickets all over the Kansas City metropolitan area in both Kansas and Missouri.


Please give me a call if you think I can help with your legal issue.  In most cases, I can give a free quote for my services over the phone. 


Thank you!  I look forward to hearing from you.

Great job!
Melisa was quick to respond to my inquiry of help in getting a speeding ticket amended to a non-moving violation. She was the most affordable of the 3 firms I inquired with, so I hired her. Everything was done through email and she successfully had my ticket amended. Thanks Melisa!

Easy to work with!
I was referred to Melisa by a friend of mine who's an attorney in KS. I had a speeding violation that I needed to have taken care of, and with a few short conversations, Melisa was very pro-active & kept me updated throughout the process. Super easy to work with, and very cost effective compared to other options I explored!

I recommend her!
She helped me with a traffic ticket (I am from out of state). She was trustworthy and honest, and handled the case to my satisfaction and above. I highly recommend her.

Very responsive and professional!
I hired Ms. Ludeman based on a referral from another attorney in a different state. She did exactly what she promised to do and charged a very fair fee. I received a speeding ticket on my way to the airport and Ms. Ludeman was able to negotiate a non-moving violation charge with the prosecutor. I provided basic details to Ms. Ludeman and she took it from there - handling all appearances and paperwork. Excellent, efficient, and professional work.

Ludeman Law was fast, easy and effective in addressing my excessive speeding ticket
Melisa took my information and addressed my traffic violation quickly with a very minimal amount of communication at a reasonable price.

Professional and easy to work with.
Melisa was great. She explained everything to me and promptly returned my calls and emails. And she took care of my speeding ticket before the court date.
