Juanita took care of our needs prevented us from spending more than necessary to get what we really needed. She even met with us to return documents on her own time. I would hire again if the need arises again. Thanks again Juanita.

I contacted Mellman & Mellman, LLP regarding a vendor who had not delivered an item I purchased months before. Juanita Guillen-Mellman returned my call the same day and within 24 hours had sent a letter to the vendor, who promptly delivered my item. Mellman & Mellman, LLP were professional, responsive and effective!

Ms. Guillen was very professional and knowledgeable when I needed help understanding my rights as a tenant in a rent controlled apartment. My apartment building came under new ownership and I was getting a lot of new paper work to sign as well as a rent increase. Juanita did a great job of breaking down the paper work into language I could understand while also giving me guidance on what my rights were with the new ownership. Over all a really great experience. I highly recommend Juanita!

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Although our base hourly rate is $250, we also offer "a la carte" services to fit the clients need. The goal is to help you get the representation you need and to address your immediate legal issues while also keeping in mind your budget. We offer a 30 minute consultation that will allow us to discuss your issue in detail and provide you with a good idea of what costs will be associated with representation.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    It all starts with a conversation. We like to know what your goals are and what concerns you are facing. From there, we will develop an action plan to get you the result you want and need.

  • What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?

    Besides the well known will consider the following checklist in creating your Estate Plan: 1. Make a Will- a will states who you want to inherit your property and name a guardian to care for your young children should something happen to you and the other parent. 2. Consider a Trust- putting your property in a living trust means your survivors won't have to go through probate, a time consuming and expensive process. 3. Make an Advances Health Care Directive- a health care directive states your wishes for health care to protect you if you become unable to make medical decisions for yourself. 4. Make a Financial Power of Attorney- allows you to choose a trusted person to handle your finances and property if you become incapacitated and unable to handle your own affairs. 5. Cover Funeral Expenses- consider creating a payable-on-death account at your bank and deposit funds into it to pay for your funeral and related expenses. 6. Make Final Arrangements- take control and make your own end-of-life wishes known regarding organ and body donation and disposition of your body (burial or cremation). 7. Protect Your Business- create a succession plan if you are sole owner of a business or create a buyout agreement if you are a part owner with others. 8. Store Your Documents- make sure after your estate plan is created, you keep it in a safe place. Consider keeping multiple hard copies as well as digital copies for loved ones to access.
