They Fight for Their Clients

As someone who has had to navigate the world of family lawyers in an incredibly difficult divorce, I have learned that there very big differences in approaches. Some simply don’t have the expertise or temperament to get truly tough when necessary. If you are in a situation where you need someone who will help you stand your ground, especially when it comes to dealing with an abusive ex, you would be very wise to have her represent you.

Melissa Doesn’t Miss Anything

Outstanding law firm. Melissa puts her clients first. She is also a no non-sense attorney who sets reasonable expectations. The fees are the most reasonable of any attorney I interviewed. I have used Averett Family Law multiple times and do not hesitate to highly recommend them!
