We have worked with Melissa for
4 years, on both personal and commercial matters over this time, and we have always been deeply satisfied with her services. As a young couple in business, situations requiring legal prowess have been a professional and emotional challenge for us. Melissa has expertly guided us through every such hurdle that we have faced in business and made us feel assured, capable and that she has unselfishly had our best interests at the forefront of her work. We have come to view Melissa as an inspirational woman and cannot recommend her highly enough."
