In our time of need, my husband and I were recommended services from Melody. My first impression is still the exact same impression today.
Melody was not only patient and kind, she walked us through the whole meeting until we accomplished our goal. Melody's smile and presence is equally as pleasant as she is knowledgable and helpful. I still recommend Melody 10 years later.

Melody was by far the greatest legal professional I have ever had the privilege of working with. When starting our small business Melody went out of her way to not only prepare our company documentation and agreements but to explain to us exactly what she was doing and why it needed to be done. She was not afraid to steer us towards less expensive options when she could have easily upsold us. She was always available to answer questions and when she was unfamiliar with a topic she would research it and give a well thought out explanation. I cannot recommend Lankford Law Firm enough.
