Melissa Chureau expertly addressed communication from opposing counsel in defense of our company in a timely fashion. She was sensitive to the financial restraints of our company when deciding on a particular course of action. She demonstrated an outstanding ability to remain focused and on topic during 8 straight hours of difficult depositions for two days in a row. Melissa was able to explain the legal process to me, someone with no prior experience with lawsuits and courts, in a way that was easy to understand. She portrayed confidence and professionalism while dealing with opposing counsel under difficult circumstances. I highly recommend Melissa Chureau as a litigation specialist.
