My case was different than any regular case because I wasn't battling a parent, I was battling a grandparent (who is not so friendly). I expressed my concerns to Melissa, and told her everything that I could remember/recent and she reassured me that this case would get swept across the rug (dismissed or little to no time). OK. I was confident, until Court because we definitely found out who was boss and my evidence wasn't used (whether she found that it was relevant or not) At recess,I expressed to her that I was going to lose, sure enough the worst happened. My daughter, 2 year old daughter has to see a woman whom she doesn't not know and has no bond with on a co parenting visitation (some parents don't even get what she got). She failed at my representation and my situation has been hell ever since (thank God it was only a temporary hearing). Best part is, my representation, JUDGED me over things that I simply forgot (error on my part) and used things that me and her discussed in CONFIDENCE (attorney-client relationship) and used it against me (I'm a widow. Lost my husband 8 months ago) and blamed ME for the relationship that caused this matter. I was already upset following court , but I became more upset with her phone call. As a lawyer, they are supposed to defend you till the end. I didn't get that treatment, She was stern with me, but it came to court, she was very quite and timid. I was EMBARRASSED! Again, I partly blame my self by going with the first lawyer who looked good on paper. As a divorce lawyer, she may be great. If you are looking for some one to represent you on something other than divorce, look Elsewhere. A part of me felt bad, because I started looking for another lawyer 3 days after court because I cant take anymore chances with this case. My mistake was picking a lawyer whom was out of town (naive me; I've never been to court before, so I didn't think that mattered) and the fact that her last grandparents rights case was a mere 20 years ago. Bottom line, I learned an expensive lesson. This is why I gave her a FAIR rating because it was partly my fault, but poor on a attorney-client relationship level.

Melissa was extremely professional, compassionate and knows the law about divorces in Texas. She very much walked me through the process, her assistant was always available to answer questions as well. It was all done in ample time and fashion.

Melissa has been my Family Law attorney for many years, and she has represented me in two major custody suits. Melissa is a very strategic thinker, an ethical & honest attorney, an excellent communicator, and prudent with her client's financial resources. Melissa is a excellent litigator as well, where I have had litigation experience with her in the court room, and in mediated & arbitrated hearings. She is masterful with her arguments, witness examinations, and objections. Her team is excellent; they provide timely, accurate, sensible and relevant information & communications. Melissa and her team do a fantastic job preparing me for hearings & testimonies. Her and her team are very well organized. They are outstanding at their profession, and I have been grateful to have them represent my family's interests.

If you look up the definition of a First Class Attorney-Pro Family, Extremely Fair, Seasoned, Works Amazingly well under pressure in and out of the court room. She doesn't get into the drama nonsense like other attorneys and is worth her weight in Gold. I had an extremely tough divorce and Melissa was the calm through the storm and in the toughest time of my life. I have recommended her to anyone that has ever asked me; "Who is the Go To Attorney?" I say hands down it's Melissa-Look No Further.

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.

Melissa is very professional, understanding, reliable, patient (with her clients), and calm in a crisis. She is very dedicated to her clients and relentlessly pursues the besy course of action for each situation. Divorce is such a jarring, life changing process and knowing you have a great lawyer like Melissa in your corner gives you one less huge thing to worry about. I trust her completely and trust her confidentiality and deligence to act in my best interest... at all times. She gets it done!

Melissa is very professional, understanding, patient, and calm in the midst of surrounding crisis. I trusted her and still do. Divorce is a very emotional jarring experience, but she made it go as smoothly as possible. It was her guidance and professionalism that helped me through the roughest times. Having a great lawyer in your corner gives you one less big thing to worry about during this life changing process. She gets the job done and fights for her clients.
