B. Smith | Haslett, Michigan

"Choosing an attorney can be a very challenging event, especially for an area of the law that profoundly affects your personal finances, sense of security, and your family. Melissa has been my attorney for over 15 years. She has prepared almost all of the trust documents wherein the grantors have named me as their trustee or personal representative.  These trusts and wills ranged from the fairly straightforward individual revocable trusts to the exceedingly complex charitable remainder unitrusts with their underlying beneficial foundations. She has proven exceptional skills in this and other areas, but the leading reason I continue to recommend her to my family, friends, and local businesses is that she can be trusted to be very knowledgeable and fair about how to appropriately handle any matter you bring to her. She and her staff provide better service than many of the large law firms, all at a more affordable rate.  Based on my many years on staff with the Wayne County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office and Michigan Court of Appeals, I am not surprised to see Melissa consistently winning awards in the community as our Favorite Attorney."

"Melissa Allen was very knowledgeable, professional and very easy to talk to about our estate planning. She also helped with the negotiations of my contracts for my practice. We highly recommend Melissa as she has provided very important information that has helped benefit us both personally and professionally. Melissa's professionalism and demeanor made the conferences with her feel as though she was part of our family and understood what we were looking for. Melissa's services have and will continue to protect our family and my practice."

Dr. Greg & Karen Popowitz | Dewitt, Michigan

"Most healthy people in their 30's don't spend alot of time thinking about dying and needing a will. When my daughter was born I decided to take action to protect her future. I contacted Melissa and she helped my wife and I set up Wills, Trusts, and Medical Powers of Attorney all in one easy visit. We have enjoyed peace of mind since then. When there was a change in the law, Melissa contacted us right away to ensure that we were protected and made the appropriate changes. The entire package was very affordable and we now feel protected.  Melissa wins the Favorite Local Attorney Award every year for her down to earth professionalism. We recommend her to friends and family and know you will be pleased with her service".
