What People Are Saying About DIVA
“Impossible is not in Melissa’s vocabulary” When no one would listen Mel heard our situation and helped us put the pieces together, against all odds and then recomending a brilliant Law Firm she worked with tirelessly. We reached a resolve without returning to Court. Her humanity and goodwill, restored our faith in professionals. Our results will go down in history as unbelievable, so we must stay nameless. Otherwise we would be shouting from the roof tops of what we retained.
