Divorce with Domestic Violence
Melissa is amazing! Her experience in Bell County courts is outstanding and she is tough in the courtroom. I have won every motion, even those filed against me. Melissa at Blanchard & Thomas knows the law inside and out and I couldn't feel more confident with my contested divorce case. With family and business at stake, hiring Melissa gave me a huge sense of relief and reduced my anxiety ten-fold. Melissa made this a winning situation for my entire family!

Everything you need and more!
Melissa was referred to me by a family friend after I had contacted two others in the area. I sought a divorce attorney that was familiar with Military families and the different regulations that get mixed up with a civilian divorce. After our initial consultation, I knew I found the one that would be worth every stressful thought and pinched penny. Melissa is very knowledgeable and patient when explaining "legal-ese" concerning the process and progress of the case. Despite knowing that all of her time spent on matters of my case is compensated, I never once felt that my case was only a source of income. She always went above and beyond to accommodate my concerns and questions. I never felt as if I was being an inconvenience and her quick responses via phone and email was a reassurance that my case was just as important for her as for me. Melissa is genuine and addressed all I needed and things I did not know I needed. I am thankful for her and she will be highly recommended to all of those in my circle that are looking for an attorney.

Smart & Compassionate Representation
From the second Melissa took my case I knew I was in good hands. She was smart, savvy, and put my children and myself first in a very high-conflict divorce. She was also able to handle an aggressive opposing council in an ethical manner. The judge ruled in our favor. She worked hard to craft a decree that will work for us today and in the future. Melissa knows the law and is the balance of both a lawyer who is an expert at drafting documents and presenting the case before a judge. I highly recommend Melissa as a family law attorney.

the only lawyer I would choose!
Melissa goes above and beyond with first class genuine service and always makes time for her clients. She understands your case is most important and you NEVER feel like a number!!! I would recommend her for any legal matter. It is obvious to me that she takes the time to thoroughly understand your issues, prepare for court and made me feel like she fought for my outcome.
