Professional and Compassionate
Melanie Baillie is a skilled and knowledgeable lawyer. With her help and guidance I was able to won my custody case, and secure a future for my daughter that was in her best interest. I highly recommend Melanie to anyone who is needing one of the most experienced, trustworthy and hardworking lawyers, especially in cases involving children. Even months after she continued to offer additional knowledge and expertise that related to my case. I will be forever grateful for her help and guidance with my custody case.

Melanie and I worked together on a very difficult child custody case. She was outstanding and very organized. Her legal knowledge is, without question, top notch! She has a winning attitude and is not afraid to fight for her clients.

she totally saved me from catastrophe!
I was in a custody battle with my ex wife. Melanie was all over it! Always prepared and looking for the facts. Dominates the courtroom with her expertise. To the point, cut and dry. I will never use a different attorney.
