Melissa's knowledge and expertise in the area of family law is second to none. She works hard to achieve the best possible outcomes for her clients and helps them to safely navigate through the often, intimidating maze of family law. She is a compassionate, caring person and passionate advocate on behalf of her clients. I endorse this lawyer.

It is a pleasure to endorse Melissa Denton, who is one of the smartest family law attorneys in Washington State. Her firm is in Olympia and she practices in Thurston, Mason, and Lewis counties. In addition to over 20 years of experience at the trial court level, she represented the Appellant in the important Marriage of Rideout case at the Court of Appeals. Melissa is a leader in dragging lawyers into the 21st century; she offers unbundled legal services (meaning you do some of the work and so save some money), flat fees (no "sticker shock" when you get your bill), and she's the Denton of Advantage Denton (a company that will help you find the right lawyer for you). There's a reason why people say "you need a smart lawyer," and Melissa Denton is a very smart lawyer!

I thoroughly endorse this lawyer's work. I have been a partner to Melissa for over 15 years, and although I am now in a semi-retired status with our firm (Ascher & Denton, PLLC) I continue to take cases on an Of Counsel basis. Melissa and I continue to consult with each other on our respective cases on a virtually daily basis. I have dealt with many Washington lawyers in my career, and I consider her among a select number who combine very high levels of integrity, competence and compassion. Otherwise, of course, I would not have chosen to ally myself with her in our legal partnership!
