Melissa Rogers is an amazing family law lawyer. She helped me through a difficult case and let me know what she thinks the outcome could be. She kept me informed and really understood where I was coming from. She made sure I got the best possible and helped keep my little girl safe. She was always there and made sure to keep me informed step by step. I would definitely use her again if need be. If you want a caring amazing lawyer I strongly advise using Melissa Rogers at engel law group. It took a year for my case and she fought hard to get me what I wanted. Thanks Melissa!

I have no experience with lawyers or being divorced. I consider myself lucky to have found Melissa, she took the "baby steps" with me as i needed them and answered each and every question (sometimes the same question more than once) all with a smile on her face. I believe the outcome was to my benefit thanks to her.

Melissa was very professional and helpful throughout the process of my recent divorce and custody battle. She was very real and honest with me which I appreciate coming from a lawyer. I would definitely use her again and recommend her to anyone.
Amir Showrai, Family Attorney
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
I have had two cases with Ms. Rogers acting as an opposing counsel (one of which is still ongoing) and I have mediated cases where I was the mediator and she representing one of the litigants. In those capacities I have been able to see how she works with her clients up close and personally. She is very intelligent, diligent, hard working, very aggressive when called for, and just as importantly, she knows when to back down in her own client's best interest, which is not always the case these days. Nuance is sometimes a lost art in family law. If I were not able to handle a case, she is someone I would refer a potential client to, and that tells you all you need to know about my unqualified recommendation.
Michelle Hull, Child custody Attorney
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
I highly endorse this lawyer. She is not only a wonderful litigator but also a an amazing person. She works hard for her clients and rarely takes an intransigent stance. She is very easy to work with and has a great amount of knowledge to share with other lawyers and her clients! I would hire Melissa in a heart beat if I had a family law issue.
