Melissa is an excellent attorney and did a great job with my complicated custody case. First and foremost, she gets back to you in a timely manner and is always ready and willing to answer your questions. Communication is never an issue with her as she will respond back to you via email or by phone. Her attention to detail is outstanding and she makes sure I was “in the know” with my case. Melissa’s paralegal is great as well. If you are looking for a caring, honest, well prepared, professional, and successful attorney, Ms. Montgomery would be a great choice for you. I would strongly recommend Melissa if you are looking for a knowledgeable, confident attorney who has your best interest in mind.

Melissa & her paralegal, Jenn were a great team to have advocating my case. Courteous, honest, very organized, trustworthy, answering questions thoroughly and clarifying areas I needed to understand. I was impressed with Melissa’s compassion yet setting forth a targeted plan of steps to help me move forward in all proceedings. Very respectful and concise. Calls always answered in a very timely manner and on time with all appointments. My time was honored by her expedient attention and follow through in all matters at hand. I will definitely recommend her Law Office to others.
