Rudas Melissa P Law Office Of
Melissa Rudas is an outstanding Attorney , she helped me significantly and was always there to answer questions. She isn't money hungry because she helped me out knowing I was a single mother of 2. Several of my friends used Melissa and got great results also. Melissa even called me back at 9pm at night after office hours to me it says she is a loyal attorney. I never had to worry about anything but signing papers , my custody / divorce went to trial and I won my case and she NEVER asked me to lie. I was with her for 2 years because we had a fight on our hands with custody. Melissa even let me finishing paying her 6 months after my case was closed. To all of you negative people you must have been on the other side because you definitely were not a client....

Well now...., reading the last post I would have to say that it makes her an excellent lawyer to be a great insensitve liar ! It's usually the best liar that wins the case. So I am definitely going to hire her ! Thanks for the insight, most people look for a spin doctor not a lawyer that plays by the rules. Hey Melissa, you did great work for my ex wife and she thought you were awesome. The last post does not really know what makes a great lawyer..........

Best lawyer you can get. Doesn't lose. According to the lawyers creed They can not lie and also if they know the culprit is quilty they tell the DA or whoever. Don't any of you know the law and watch law and order. She would be disbarred if did what these people accuse her of. If you are innocent and want to win hire this woman, she is the best

When my girlfreind had a issue at work we contacted George Kounoupis. He sent one letter to her HR department. A few days latter, my girlfriend was called into the office, they were just about falling over themselves aplolgizing for the misunderstanding. I don't know what was in that letter, but I know that it saved my girlfreinds job!

Tips & Advices
When it comes time to choose a lawyer, you should start by searching close to home. If you do have attorneys you are familiar with, ask who they believe would be best for you. After going through personal references - especially from individuals who had similar needs - you should broaden your search through public information resources. You can call your area's attorney referral service or check legal organizations like Martindale-Hubbell. There are other resources available online, such as yellowpages.com. You can check websites for client reviews and other third-party forms of approval.
If you sign documents and you come across a word you don't recognize, or you need help to navigate important employment or real estate paperwork. Also, during times when personal matters intersect with legal proceedings, you might need to have an advocate to prevent your emotions from getting in the way. If you've been accused of a crime or are in a terrible financial situation, you can find an attorney who will work with what you have available.
When you hire a lawyer, you're agreeing to work with someone over a certain period of time. The more forthcoming the lawyer appears to be with individual needs, the better.
  • You need to ask questions about how the attorney will communicate with you and what responsibilities you hold in the relationship.
  • The attorney should let you know the best channel for quick communication and you need to inform him or her when you want updates.
  • You should also ask questions to get to know the attorney as an individual in order to ensure this is a person you can trust. Ask about their legal philosophy and how he or she views the lawyer/client relationship. Ask as how to keep fees down or what daily disruptions you should expect from a long legal battle.
You need to ask about every possible fee that will come up when working with an attorney. You should request a list of all costs in advance so you won't be surprised by additional expenses like overhead. Also determine exactly when you will start being billed. You want to inspect paperwork carefully. If the attorney charges you for his or her experience, you need to make sure he or she will perform tasks personally and not hand it off to an assistant. Find out if the attorney has a flat fee or charges by the hour. Many civil lawyers work on contingency. Make inquiries about how the lawyer plans to provide service for your money and what you can do if you start to feel unsatisfied with his or her performance.
You can ask how many similar cases they have handled and if they have special skills or training that applies specifically to your needs. Lawyers can't mention clients by name, but you should ask for basic details about identical past cases. You should check their office for the appropriate certifications and diplomas. You can also ask how long he or she has practiced law and request information that demonstrates the practice's success. Look for precise details such as percentage of cases settled out of court.
