Posted by Joseph
I was falsely arrested and had hired another attorney. They wanted me to plea to something I didn't do and I felt uncomfortable doing it. I searched online and found Ms. Roe. I actually drove to court to see her in action. After watching her maneuver the case before her, I was so impressed, I decided to hire her. I observed how her peers treated her. It was obvious she is highly respected, not only by her peers, but court staff and even the judges she has stood before. My case was complex, but she explained everything, including case law and the politics behind certain decisions made by the DA (state). I had a amazing outcome. I can't even express how happy I am with her.

MELONIE ROE is a Top Notch attorney I just got thru with a 4 an a half year long case. They were trying to find me guilty on three violent felonies which if found guilty I would of been spending the rest of my life in prison. I got charged with a sales case years later while fighting this violent case. The DA tried to do everything he could to keep me in custody they gave me a no bail at first. We went back to court in front of the judge to get the hold lifted. The Da argued not to let me out to the judge but when Mrs.Roe was given her chance to speak to the judge on my behalf she was AMAZING!!! It's like she was a Tiger in the court room that day so focused so fierce and so very professional. She was on point with everything she stated. After the hour long battle between Mrs.Roe and the DA the judge granted my hold be lifted, Mrs.Roe won the battle I was out that night at home with my family. So now I got a sales charge and the 3 violent felonies. Mrs.Roe met with me to discuss the case whenever I felt like I needed to talk to her she was always there for me i never had 1 bad feeling about Mrs.Roe it was actually quite comforting to know that I had her in my corner, her being so good at what she does and so knowledgeable with the way the law works made me feel at ease. So now they were trying to give 25 to life on the one case an 7 years on the sales case. Mrs.Roe went the extra mile every time in that court room and so when it came to judgement day and we were ready to go to trial the DA came to us with a deal they knew i could not turn down. My personal opinion is they knew they were up against the best damn attorney this Desert has to offer "Mrs.Roe" and they knew getting in the ring with this Tiger was a lose lose situation for them so of course the only hope that had left was to give me a deal i couldn't refuse so me being me i took the deal. I turn myself in here shortly and I'll be home in a year COUNTY TIME so that leaves me eligible for a federal kick. I could not be more happier with the way it all turned out i highly recommend Mrs.Roe. she's a fighter, she's professional, she is so knowledgeable, she's caring and understanding, she goes the extra mile and she's the best damn attorney I have ever dealt with. etc. etc. I could keep going on and on. I can finally breathe again and get on with my life it felt like my life was in a stand still for over 4 years. I finally feel so relieved if i didn't have Mrs.Roe I'd probably be doing the rest of my life in prison but bcuz of her expertise in criminal law I'm a free man and able to be out in the real world working hard and providing for my family. I'm forever grateful an so thankful to have met Mrs.Roe. She is a true blessing

After being screwed over by another Palm Springs attorney and a corrupt judge, Melanie Roe truly came to my rescue. I honestly do not know what I would have done with out her. She is the only attorney in Palm Springs I would hire. Honest and a true professional I would recommend Melanie to anyone including family members.

Melanie Roe was a confident advocate for justice in my case. She presented a clear direction in my defense and gave me the assurance that we would prevail with the evidence that she had acquired on my behalf. Her calm management of the criminal procedure I was involved with provided me with the assurance that I was receiving experienced and excellent legal counsel. I would highly recommend Melanie Roe to anyone should they need the assistance of a criminal defense attorney. I knew I was innocent; and more importantly, she demonstrated that I was innocent. Thank you, Melanie Roe.

I would have never thought I would ever find myself needing a criminal defense attorney in my lifetime. With that said, I did just that. I was a victim of a hate crime and I had misdemeanor charges filed against me by one of my attackers. Melanie Roe did an outstanding job in my case. Her investigator, Mr. Tira, was fantastic and her assistant, Cristy, did a fantastic job too. She stood there by my side through the whole case and with her incredible skill set as an attorney, was able to get my case dismissed in the interest of justice. I was innocent the whole time and Melanie Roe prooved that I was innocent. She spared me endless months of anxiety and unnecessary stress. I highly recommend Melanie Roe as a defense attorney and she gets five stars in any category.

Melaanie Roe was my public defender and it was a simple case -- it was a void on the face judgment but she didn't know the law and never once contacted me in jail. I saw her the day I went to court and she sent me to Patton State Hospital because she was on a murder case [that she lost]. I wanted to defend myself and she agreed I could request that in court -- instead she sold me down the river. She has never apologized or made things right. All it would take is for her to appear in court...and present the facts. I lost my home, my lifesavings and my health SHE IS A TERRIBLE PERSON!

Melanie Roe is the Best at what she does. Her attention to detail and knowledge of what is needed for each case is undeniably better than other lawyers I've encountered in the court room. Melanie CARES about every client and pours her heart into her work . She is the most aggressive and forth-right attorney in the courtroom. Her honesty and reliability have impressed the judges in the courtrooms across Riverside County. All in All Melanie Roe is the Best Lawyer for any person who wants their case handled properly and with care .

Got my case dismissed in a very quick and painless fashion. She is as close to a miracle worker as it gets, thank you, Ms. Roe.

I was charged with two counts of child molestation by the government when I was accused of inappropriate touching while at my job one day which was a year before the charges where filed against me. After three and a half years of this nightmare hanging over my head Melanie Roe fought the case for me and paid strict attention to every small detail even planning an appeal for me before the trial began when the government violated my constitutional right to a speedy trial. She stood with me in court even though she had to cancel her vacation plans due to the fact of the government always wanting continuances and the courthouse having a hard time having to find a room to have the trial in. She was very professional and a true defender of my rights in and out of the courtroom. She persuaded the jury that the government failed to prove the false accusations I was criminally charged with and they returned a unanimous verdict of not guilty on both counts.
If you are ever accused of a crime or know a loved one that has been accused do not ever go talk to the police even when asked by them. They are not looking out for you or will give you the benefit of the doubt at all. First go talk to an experienced criminal defense attorney, preferably Melanie Roe; and she will fight her hardest to see that you or a loved one are treated fairly by a system that is too often willing to overlook your individual rights for the easiest way to convict and add more meat for the criminal justice system grinder.
