    Melissa gave my case her full & honest attention from the first phone call. Being represented by Melissa made me feel secure and I was confident in her abilities to move the case in the desired direction. She continued to act in my best interests even as my former employer and their counsel showed lack of professionalism and courtesy during the negotiations. Melissa is bright, gracious and knows how to fight for her clients. Read less
