Estate Planning
Melissa is terrific! As estate planning attorney for my wife and I, we found Melissa very personable, and certainly knowledgeable as she patiently answered all our questions, what-ifs and how-to's. We never felt rushed to just get it done, and she endeavored to ensure we understood the processes. Document presentation was impressive! Highly recommend!!

Melissa Ahlers was amazing
Attorney Melissa Ahlers was appointed to me when I was going through my case with Juvenile Court regarding my 1 yr old daughter. The process was very stressful and it did not make it easier that my ex girlfriend was very difficult along the way. Melissa was very informative, understanding and took the time to help me understand what was going on. She was very proactive, motivated and got everything done in a timely manner all while keeping me in the loop. I STRONGLY reccomend Melissa Ahlers.

Outstanding!
Melissa is very professional, friendly, and determined. She was very helpful in my case and I never felt lost or confused by any of the information she provided. Whenever I had a question, or was unsure, Melissa was there to help clarify and inform. I couldn’t be more pleased with my representation. If you want an attorney to not just represent you but also support you in the process, you should see Melissa. Thank you so much!!
