Communication, Quality of Service, Responsiveness, Value for Money
"NURSES, look no further if you need help! Melanie was awesome and gave me REAL answers that MULTIPLE lawyers who AREN'T nurses were trying to cheat me out of my money! She even offered to review my statement. Just based on my consultation alone with her, I would retain her for any future needs. Thank you Melanie for being real and trustworthy from the bottom of my heart."
"With two phone calls and one letter, Melanie solved my legal problems. She is efficient, effective and kind. She saved my sanity and my licence. Anyone in medicine can be certain that Melanie understands the issues and will represent you with skill and speed."
"Great to work with! Melanie provided very timely responses, was easy to get a hold of, and thoroughly explained my options with the licensing agency. She kept me informed throughout the process. Melanie worked wwell with the investigator ensuring I take all the necessary steps to make the best decisions througout the case, which ended up being dismissed. I highly recommend Melanie as she is highly experienced in admininstrative law."
