It's like having a great Euchre hand with Melinda. She cares about me as a person. When Melinda is arbitrating, I always feel comfortable and she has a great game plan. I really appreciate her. I could have gotten someone locally to represent me, but it's worth the drive to have Melinda. She is on top of it and makes it nice to go to court and not have to worry. She is a God savior for me, and I love her to death. Melinda fights tooth and nail for me, and I probably owe her more than I have paid her."
