Melody represented my husband and I during a nasty shareholder dispute within our company. Melody worked tirelessly on our case and it wasn't unusual to get calls and emails from her over the weekend or late at night. She was very thorough in her research and in working with us. We are still waiting on a verdict from the judge in our case, but no matter what the ruling is I am very pleased with the representation provided by Melody and would highly recommend her to anyone who finds themselves in the unfortunate situation that we are in.

My wife and I were involved in a hostile takeover of our company. We built it from scratch and my Mom and Dad tried to take it from us unexpectedly.
While the case isn't over yet... my wife and I both agree that we couldn't have picked a better team to represent us. Melody and her team fought tirelessly for us to get our business back round the clock. I really get the feeling from them that they believe in what they do. They don't do it for the money but to help people that are being legally taken advantage of.
The lawyers we are up against are supposedly some of the best in Washington State and are really nasty. Melody and her team stood up to them and exposed and defended us from their legal bully style tactics. Melody presented a compelling and accurate version of our story on our behalf.
Melody...is not cheap.
But you get what you pay for. Before the hostile takeover we had a simple attorney which dropped the ball and caused a lot of grief and incredible expense in the long run.
If we would have had Melody on board initially we probably wouldn't have gone to court at all and wouldn't be in this situation. We plan to continue using Melody and the Stamper Rubens team as our regular attorneys in the future and are thankful we found them.

Melody helped me settle a wage claim and got me everything that I was asking for. She bends over backwards to pull up reference materials and is very professional. I would recommend her to anyone in the Spokane area.

I endorse this lawyer. Melody is an extremely knowledgable lawyer with amazing analytical skills and a palpable passion to advocate for her clients. I would gladly look to Melody for advice on any personal matters I might encounter, and often look to her for advice and direction on the current status of the law in her various areas of expertise.
