Linda Melancon testimonials

“Linda, I want to thank you for your excellent handling of the legal affairs of my parents. You were so very patient and made sure that they completely understood the information in all areas. We were impressed with your professionalism, your command of the issues at hand, your desire to meet all their needs and requirements, and the attention to each and every detail as well as the efficient and timely completion of the documents. In the past, our experience with attorneys at times was less pleasant and we were not as satisfied that we were presented all options available and we felt completely comfortable with all decisions made with your suggestions and directions. I am happy to recommend you to my family, friends, and anyone who asks for a recommendation for legal work. I give you my permission to use this testimonial in any way you desire.”   - Jean Hudgens Hall

“My experiences with Linda Melancon have been extremely satisfying. She and her staff made me feel very comfortable right from the start both in person and over the telephone. Linda is a patient and kind person. She is thorough and precise. I appreciated that she made sure she completely comprehended what I wanted before any preliminary work began and then would go over the matter again in detail upon completion to make sure I understood the legal language and was satisfied. I would highly recommend her services.”   - Mary M.
