About Melissa

Learn Melissa’s areas of practice.

I bring training in the fields of traditional litigation, collaborative law, negotiation, mediation and life coaching to help find the best solutions for my clients.  I am a certified Family and Divorce mediator as well as a Certified Life Coach.  My clients find that when they have me on their team they have a personal divorce coach available to them throughout the process to help answer questions and guide them to the best possible resolution of their case, always focusing on what is best for them, their children and their future in ways that allow for out of court resolution. 

I have also had a lifetime as a horse breeder and showman that brings experience to assist those with equine law related needs, be it horse boarding and training issues, buy/sell agreements, prepurchase exams or any other equine related issues.  I have extensive network in the horse industry in Oklahoma and throughout the United States along with my negotiation expertise that allows me to help clients resolve these issues typically out of court and work with seasoned litigators should the need become necessary.

Excellent attorney
My ex-husband is an attorney in town, so I needed expert advice/legal counsel. Melissa is professional, thorough, efficient, honest, and was the absolute best choice I could've made. I am forever grateful for your expertise and guidance.

Divorce while overseas
In a very efficient way Melissa managed to finalize my divorce while I'm outside the country, her knowledge of the law about this particular case was precise, her roadmap to get this done was well communicated from the beginning and well executed .Thank you!!

Excellent Family Lawyer
As all experiences in family court, mine wasn't pleasant. Melissa was able to give excellent advice on how to navigate that difficult time productively while achieving my main goal of equal time. Her education and extensive background in counseling and mediation were priceless in terms of proper counsel and not getting caught up on who's right but more directing to getting you the end results wanted. Absolutely recommend.

I would highly recommend!
I loved working with Melissa! I was really looking for someone who could advocate for me but also have a understanding of my emotional needs in the case as well. She has both skill sets, which is rare! I would recommend her to any woman or man looking for a well rounded, considerate, yet strong lawyer. She was very professional, efficient, and detailed. I wouldn’t have had it any other way.

Excellent Results With High Conflict Divorce
I hired Melissa to represent me in my divorce and custody case. She always communicated plainly and I never felt put off. She was able to reach an agreement with my now ex spouse, when I thought it was going to be impossible. She always had my best interests and that of my child. I would recommend Melissa to anyone who is entrenched in the family court system.

Wonderful support at a difficult time
Ms. Fell is everything one can hope to find in an attorney. Certainly competent and professional, but also a GREAT listener with compassion for a very difficult time. She also had an eye on keeping my billable time in check (which was essential for me), but most importantly, helped me keep the ultimate goal in view for me during an incredibly difficult time. It can be so easy to veer off course during this emotional rollercoaster time, however, Melissa gently asked questions to steer me back to my stated goal I'd shared with her at the beginning and we acheived that in a VERY short time frame. I'd interviewed several attorneys prior to making a choice, and though I'd paid to interview them, I was never totally comfortable until I met Melissa Fell. So glad I didn't settle for anyone else.

Excellent! Highly Recommended!
Through one of the worst times of my life, I was comforted with Melissa there to help answer tough questions and provide clear, wise counsel while facing very tough decisions. She's hard-working, responsive, informative, kind, compassionate, accessible, professional, and extremely patient - no matter my questions or concerns! Just as importantly, she genuinely cares and diligently works to achieve the best possible outcome for her clients. Melissa was a blessing amidst a storm, and I can't possibly thank her enough for her help. My strongest recommendation for anyone looking for a family law attorney: contact Melissa!
