Approachable and Professional

I hired Mckinley Melancon to handle a criminal matter. She walked me through every step of the process with confidence and making me feel confident. Not once did I feel alone in the process or intimidated to ask questions. My case ended in an outcome that I desired. I could have not asked for a more approachable and professional attorney and personally, probably the most humble and down to earth person I've met, which made me feel so comfortable. 

If you are looking for quality, she's it.

I hired Ms. Melancon to draft my contracts for me so that I can legally do business with my clients for DJing. Not only did she make this process as simple and swift as she possibly could, she was valiant in her attempts to provide me with as much assistance as she could offer. Her work is precise and serves the purpose that you go to a lawyer for. I would advise anybody to use her.

She guided me through all of the processes while keeping me up to speed with due dates and requirements. I am thankful that I chose her as my attorney because I was comfortable working with her and she did not add any stress to the already stressful legal situation. I would highly recommend McKinley as your attorney due to the fact of how she handles herself with her clients and legal representatives.

She Is a Fighter

I want to take the time to write a thorough review over the reasons why you should choose McKinley Melancon to represent you. 


In the Fall of 2014, I was arrested in my underwear by Travis County over a crime I was falsely charged of.  At that time, I was a student at the University of Texas. I had no money. I had no family support. I had no idea of the next steps to make. The week I was arrested I had three consecutive exams, and so I was overwhelmed with the situation.  

I started to receive the usual legal representation letters in the mail. I had no faith that I could possibly reach out to any of them with the hope that they would understand the situation I was in. However, there was one individual that I did choose to reach out to. 

My case involved someone accusing me of assault with bodily injury. There was no proof. There were only my words against that someone's lies. And as you know, when the state takes a case on, they do the most to try and hold the defendant accountable. Months and months passed. Then, it was a year, and then another year. 

Dealing with the state or any government is not an easy thing to do and requires an immense amount of patience. I was struggling with my health, and over the years I was losing faith that I was ever going to receive a trial. But I did.  

McKinley is a person of integrity. She is a fighter. She is a passionate lawyer who takes her career to a personal level.  When it came to my case, she was persistent. She was understanding of my situation. When I came to her pleading for help with all that I had, she accepted what I could give. Of course, every lawyer comes with a price, but that didn't stop her from arranging a payment plan that I could afford.  I put my trust, faith, and hope in McKinley, and she did the most to make sure that I was going to be properly represented. And, in the end, I received a not guilty verdict. 

McKinley also has a great network of colleagues. If she does not have an answer to give you, she will work and find the answers that you need. She has all the support possible to ensure that her clients are dealt with respectfully and properly. 

If you have ever been charged with a crime, you will know or come to find out that it is a lengthy and tedious process to get a trial. With that said, I encourage you to reach out to McKinley. She will walk with you every step to the decision you will end up making. I can't express how grateful I am to have chosen McKinley Melancon.
