Our client's comments reflect the personal interest we take in their legal issues.

"Melinda was extremely approachable and was able to explain my options in simple terms. She was very fair when she detailed the different strategies that were available to me, keeping in mind that minimizing costs was a big consideration to me. She was very attentive to my case, keeping me informed at every step of the process and letting me know what to expect. I am so relieved that I had such a great advocate who also took care to make sure that I was informed of all of the potential outcomes of each decision. She is a kind soul, and hopefully I will not need her services again, but I am happy to refer her to my friends and family. "

"I have never used a lawyer before so I was nervous about choosing someone. My experience was a positive one. I found her to be caring, professional and deeply committed to my case. I am extremely satisfied with Ms. Luthin's service and would highly recommend her. She is very knowledgeable in Real Estate and Land Use in Newport Beach"

"Melinda is a PROFESSIONAL in every sense of the word! I was referred to her by a friend when I was in need of advice. I went to her and she couldn't have been more knowledgeable and helpful. Words cannot explain how much I truly am thankful for her advice and help! I would definitely recommend her to anyone who is need of legal advice and help!!"
