The whole staff at Whittel & Melton was nice and always ready to help. However, I worked mostly with Jason. He demonstrated that he understood what to expect with our case and better that he cared about what was happening. I was very pleased with the outcome of our case. G.S.

I had the experience of working with Jason Melton and what I can say is this, he is honest, and will fight hard for you to ensure you are represented in the best possible manner. While I am not willing to go into specifics about my case, I can tell you that you wont regret working with him. If you need a straight shooter, Jason Melton is worth a look. P.G.
