Kathy M.

"Mrs. Wick provided clear, concise and timely information to us. She provided it in ways that all family members could understand. She took time and answered all of our questions without making us feel like we should already have the information or understand complicated topics."

Anna A.

"Melissa has kept me well informed on the subject that we are dealing with. Melissa carries herself in a very professional manner and it’s greatly appreciated."

Alan W.

"Melissa counseled us with regard to our father in the Medicaid maze and was/is extremely knowledgeable in the elder law area of practice. Furthermore, and maybe as important, she knows the individuals within the system and appeared to have their respect and confidence. We would recommend her highly."

Terry W.

"We found Melissa to be an extremely approachable and sensitive listener and one who readily understood our family concerns. The complexity of legal parlance can often result in interactions that are either too detailed or too simplistic to truly be helpful. Melissa provided sound knowledge of elder care & estate issues, while offering the kind of empathy that helped us understand and prioritize our needs.”

Brian & Diane W.

"Melissa is very knowledgeable and proficient. She lays out a plan and works with you step by step to achieve a positive outcome. Good communication!!!!!”
