  • Marks on your permanent record

It is crucial that you retain a strong defense lawyer if you have been arrested for drunk driving / DUI. The right DUI defense lawyer can make all the difference in the outcome of your case. 


Attorney Melton uses her experience, winning courtroom trial record, and love of the law to help her clients. She understands that each and every case is different, and every legal situation is unique. Unlike many other defense lawyers who will try to "plead out" the case right away, attorney Melton will fully explore the possibility of an acquittal or dismissal, before advising her clients to consider a plea negotiation. Attorney Melton brings sensitivity, open and honest communication, thoroughness, preparation as well as passion and compassion to her law practice and to her clients.


There are no secrets to success. It is a combination of hard work, thoroughness, preparation, passion and compassion. Attorney Melton loves the law, and loves to help people!
