“I feel like the luckiest person in the world having Melissa and Max solving my problems with DVA. As some may know, DVA has been a nightmare and when I previously had another lawyer representing me it was not going anywhere, which made the experience even more traumatic. Melissa and Max came onboard seamlessly to help me after a simple web search and found that they are PEOPLE. .. who are fully understandable and experienced about my needs and requirements, and they go out of their way to always do the right thing for you in a form that makes sense…. Personal compassion and goodwill is paramount to M&M. So muchly reduced stress and could not recommend anyone else more highly to get you through the compensation nightmare."
