  • Bruce Whitney Sarbaugh

    I have had the pleasure of working with Melanie on several cases and am proud to endorse her as an outstanding attorney. Melanie not only knows the law inside and out, but also the opposing players and local procedures (which is vital). Melanie is passionate about her craft and truly cares about her clients and is, without question, my "go to" immigration counsel.
