My wife and I had the pleasure of working with Melissa this past fall when we were buying our new home. She was pleasant, professional, patient and very knowledgeable. Melissa and her staff did everything they could to make sure my wife and I were protected should the deal fall apart. The closing went off without a problem and we have since moved into our new home. Melissa was a delight to work with. She takes great care of her clients and we never felt overwhelmed because we knew she was in our corner. I would highly recommend Melissa and her services. Thanks You Melissa!!!  - Will Finan - 2017

Excellent attorney !!!  I have great appreciation for Melissa Suarez and her team. They were wonderful from the start. Always, following up and meticulously detail oriented professionals. I was impressed that Melissa sent and answered emails way passed business hours. But, beyond being professionals, I am really impressed with the personal caring from all in her office beyond words. They were all supportive of me due to the the unique situation I was in with the lender and advised me to 100% to my benefit ensuring that I understood everything completely prior to closing. I have recommended Melissa Suarez to friends and family because I know they will all be in wonderful, professional hands and I look forward to working with her again soon. - Elizabeth Amaya - November 9, 2015

Excellent real estate attorney.  Melissa assisted me in my recent closing for my condo. I hired Melissa after I had a very unresponsive attorney. Melissa was very responsive through email as well as phone. She made the closing super easy. Melissa is great at explaining all the paper work so I did not feel overwhelmed. I would definitely recommend Melissa for a first time home buyer. - Jessica Carmody - October 27, 2015

Melissa Suarez is a "10"!  Melissa was our attorney on both the sale of our home as well as the purchase of a new construction home last year. In short, Melissa was among the best attorneys that we have had represent us! She is of high integrity, communicative, affable and thorough. Additionally, her personality is very approachable; she is direct/to the point, always reachable and most importantly a total pleasure to deal with. My husband and I will work with her again without hesitation! - Posted by Gloria - May 9, 2013

Excellent, Trustworthy Attorney I worked with multiple times.  Melissa is an excellent attorney I used 6 times: 1 Home closing case, 3 refinance cases, 1 estate planning case, 1 property tax reassement case. She always went above and beyond to help with my situation. Her advice was always knowledgeable and to the point. She was very careful with my paperwork, and I felt that could completely trust her with my private information. She responded to my calls and e-mails while on vacation, stayed past her schedule to accomodate me on couple occasions. I would hire her again without hesitation.- Posted by Steve - May 8, 2013 

Amazing Attorney!  Melissa handled both my real estate transaction and my divorce. She was so professional and kind and her staff treated me as family. They kept me informed and up to speed throughout the entire process and answered all of my questions without ever making me feel unintelligent for asking them. I will never use another attorney and I cannot recommend Melissa enough! - Posted by anonymous - November 29, 2012

Wonderful Experience.  I have purchased and sold 4 properties in 2 states and Melissa, hands down, made my last purchase an absolutely wonderful experience. She and her staff were responsive, communicative, competent, and did everything possible to make this closing a wonderful experience. She was in constant contact with my realtor and lender, keeping them apprised and on the same page. She was proactive throughout.  I agree with the last review - Melissa and her staff treat you like a friend. I highly recommend her! - Posted by Maria - September 3, 2011 
Outstanding! Professional and reachable!  Melissa Suarez and her office staff are caring professionals who actually work with the client and don't simply talk over them. They don't make you feel like they are "doing you a favor" or make you feel stupid, instead they are courteous, professional and effective. ALL lawyers could take a lesson from this office's attitude toward clients and issues. This lady and her staff make you feel like a "friend" instead of just a client. I definitely recommend her! - Posted by Very Satisfied - June 2, 2011
