I found myself in a difficult divorce situation. My number one concern was my 14 month old son. I had met with 8 attorneys who informed me of my options and all pointed to the fact that the law is the law and that's the end of it. When I found Melissa it was different, she actually listened to my concerns and really had my sons best interest at the forefront. I had finally found someone who genuinely understood my concerns and let me have a voice. It is so hard to find good people this day in age, Melissa Williams is one of them! If you are looking for someone to be your advocate, Melissa is your best bet! My son and I will be forever grateful for Melissa working hard for us.

Melissa Williams did a wonderful job for me and my family in a difficult situation. She was both understanding and supportive. Her knowledge and ability to explain nuance were of great use to me. When it came to the execution of the legal activity Melissa was both strong yet flexible. I would recommend her wholeheartedly and if I have need, would gladly retain her again.
