NEARLY TWO DECADES OF DEDICATED CLIENT ADVOCACY

With nearly two decades of experience, I consider representing, protecting, and defending the rights of others to be an honor and tremendous responsibility that I do not take lightly. I never forget that the outcome of any legal issue can have a profound impact on my clients' lives. This is why I work hard to ensure that every available legal resource is used in the representation of each of my clients.

Besides divorce cases, I also handle a wide range of family law cases, including same-sex divorces, legal separations, alimony, child support, child support enforcement, and child custody. I also assist clients with division of marital property, marital settlement agreements, post judgment modifications, and adoptions.

Personal Injury

Because some of my clients also need my help with non-family law cases, I also extend my services to those who need personal injury representation. No case is too complicated for me to handle. I will ensure that your rights are always protected and work relentlessly towards a positive outcome.

  • If you want an attorney who will fight for your rights and make sure that the other side pays dearly, then be all means hire Melissa Wilson.

    “THE ABSOLUTE BEST FAMILY ATTORNEY THERE IS! I went to Melissa Wilson after making a huge mistake of hiring a lawyer from a different firm. The lawyer from the other firm has screwed up my case so bad that I was afraid I was going to lose everything. I was told of Melissa Wilson from a trusted friend and after careful consideration I met with her. From the first meeting I was put as ease. She laid out the course of action that would be taken and from the first day she acted. She was filing motions and counter petitions to my ex's attorney and soon had my case back on track. She always made herself readily available to me when I had any questions or concerns about anything. She was so professional in regards to my case that I felt 150% confident. She had my ex's attorney spinning in circles. My ex and her attorney soon decided to settle the case before trail as it would have been very detrimental to their cause to proceed. She was able to get me the custody of my daughter that I was seeking and proper distribution of marital assets that was more than fair to me. If you want an attorney who will fight for your rights and make sure that the other side pays dearly, then be all means hire Melissa Wilson. She is well worth the investment.”

  • AMAZING. Super aggressive

    “AMAZING. Super aggressive. When I left the courtroom after she completely wiped the floor with my husband's lawyer, the bailiff, who walked me out told me I was lucky to have her. She sees her in court all the time and if she was to hire a lawyer, Melissa would be the one.”

  • We couldn't be happier. If I ever need a lawyer again I will call Melissa and her staff.

    “BEST choice! I recently just went through a nasty divorce/family court case. My ex did everything he could to make me look bad. I called Melissa's office on 11/15/2016 and hired her we spoke and went over everything. Melissa and her staff made me feel comfortable. My divorce went from November 2016 and was completed in September 2017 with all the paperwork being signed off by the judge. Melissa and her staff knew their stuff and how to handle my case. Melissa won my case for me. I have my son and we couldn't be happier. If I ever need a lawyer again I will call Melissa and her staff.”
