I was referred to Mrs. Silk by a close friend and after my original consultation I immediately retained her services for my custody and relocation case. She is extremely attentive and forward thinking and both she and her staff did a fantastic job of guiding me through the preparation process. We were very well prepared and she helped me get ready for the trial through education and logic. The time we spent together in preparation for the hearing not only gave me the knowledge necessary but also instilled a level of confidence in me about our case. In such a gut-wrenching experience, it was a real pleasure to work with such a professional attorney that really cared more about the outcome of my case than the hours billed. I would highly recommend Melinda for any family law issue.
