I was falsely accused of civil harassment by my boyfriend's malicious ex-wife, so I hired Melinda to defend me. At the hearing my testimony and that of my accuser were almost identical; the facts of the case were undisputed. When the other side rested, Melinda simply stood, addressed the court and made a motion that the court find in my favor as a matter of law stating that my accuser had failed to prove a single element of civil harassment, and the JUDGE GRANTED HER MOTION! Here in Texas this is known as winning on a motion of summary judgment. Melinda was well-prepared, thoroughly versed in the law, efficient, succinct, wise and deadly effective. She was so professional and compassionate with me that I came to adore her. She's the kind of woman I would choose as a friend even had I not had the pleasure to work with her professionally. I was backed into a corner and she came out like a bulldog in Gucci and graciously handed Mr. Harvey and his client their asses. She's good people, y'all. Hire her. It's the right thing to do.

Melinda was and continues to be a solid and responsive lawyer. She helped me during my difficult divorce and made it as easy and simple and quick as legally and humanly possible. Her legal advice was right on the money and my needs were secured. I trust her judgement and recommendations and would highly recommend her.

Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
I endorse this lawyer. Melinda is a tough, smart lawyer who is extremely dedicated to her clients. What's more refreshing is that she is reasonable, available and easy to work with. Any person in need who hires this superb attorney will know he or she is in capable hands.
Baden Mansfield, Family Attorney
Relationship: Worked together on matter
I endorse this lawyer.Ms Manley worked as co-counsel with me on a very contentious Family law matter. She was quite competent in an unusual issue. I have also had cases where Melinda was opposing counsel. It is always good to have competent counsel as opposition.
