COMPLETE SCAM ARTISTS!!! Do not use this firm! Very poorly managed. Melissa is a complete joke. We paid to use the "expert lawyer" but could never get a phone call back or Melissa on the phone. She filed in the wrong county then charged us for the change of venue and then discovered that she doesn't practice in the county the case was switched to. Resulting in us finding a real lawyer to fight for custody of our son. We paid $4000 for this "senior lawyer" to waste our time with no services provided.

Melissa represented me through my divorce. Her compassionate, sound advice was above and beyond what I expected from a divorce lawyer. Her professionalism stood out among others I looked at to handle my case. In the end I was extremely pleased with the results. Melissa's made me feel confident and sure things would be ok. I'm very grateful for her expertise and guidance through the entire process.

I highly recommended ASCHER & DENTON, PLLC , the firm has a great team. Melissa has a great personality and a real sense of caring which made me feel at ease. Very nice team with experience and knowledge. I could always contact with any questions, and her thoughtfulness is much appreciated. Very grateful for her help. Thank you very much.

I endorse this lawyer. Melissa works extremely hard to make a difference in her client's lives. She has practiced as a Family Law attorney for over 20 years. She has a wealth of knowledge and experience. She is compassionate, focus, and determined to get the best results. Although she has the smarts and the experience of a giant, she has always been very professional and courteous towards her clients. I am lucky to have her as a mentor.
