Mr. Melton came to the rescue in a DUI situation -- got arrested for being drunk SLEEPING IN MY TRUCK! Unbelievable -- I was simply doing "the right thing" by attempting to sleep it off. The police woke me and then . . . arrested me for drunk driving and spent the night in jail.
Mr. Melton was invaluable in getting me through the DMV hearing, offering excellent advice and being there for the hearing. He also shared important information with the Public Defender and because of that information has been able to get the DMV charges changed to an acquittal, meaning I can drive again!
I would absolutely, wholeheartedly use Barry for any future situations that come up and will recommend him to anyone needing his services.

I sent Barry an email stating my problem, and he got back to me within hours of the email. He was very knowledgeable, polite, and put my interest and well being before his own. He was very fair and prompt.
