The offices level of empathy, professionalism, and sense of urgency is second to none. I would not hesitate to recommend Tom to anyone in need of his services.
Working with the Melanson team was an absolute pleasure. Considering the nature of the situation, Thomas made me feel comfortable and confident at all phases of the legal process. When legal dealings were all said and done, the outcome was exactly as he had projected, full dismissal of all charges. Best in class!
Never in my life did I ever think I would be in the position of requiring a defense attorney. Not only was I terrified but I did where to turn, feeling ashamed and hopeless. I turned to searching for attorneys on the internet. I came across Thomas Melanson, and in reading his credentials, I felt like this was a wonderful place to start.
I reached out to Mr. Melanson's law office and received a return call almost immediately. After my first meeting with Mr. Melanson, I knew immediately that I would be in good hands. Not only did he educate me as to the process, but explained my situation to me in terms that I could understand, and feel empowered to take action. Thomas was empathetic yet emphasized the potential outcomes in the case. He listened to my story, my background, my employment history -he took note of my responsibilities to myself, my family and my greater community. He gave me the direction to follow the proper procedures and kept me engaged in the status of my case. I felt as if Tom truly gave me a second chance to continue to live a life to be proud of. Going through any legal proceeding can have any effects on an individual. I always thought Thomas was tirelessly working for me and was only a phone call away. I feel he went out of my way in helping me advocate for myself with my employers and helping support the fact that this single event was not going to paint my future, that people can with superior legal counsel can have control over their life, if they are wiling to work with the justice system and follow recommendations presented. In any successful relationship, there is a relationship of give and take; both parties have their responsibility to achieve success. I always felt that Tom was driven to securing the most adventitious outcome which would enable me to have a second chance at maintaining the productive life style I wished to have. I cannot thank him enough for this. I cannot recommend him enough; his entire office including secretary, always available at a moment's notice.
