Melanie N. Roe – Attorney At Law
Palm Springs Criminal Defense Attorney
With over two decades of trial experience, and being no stranger to a jury, Attorney Roe has successfully tried nearly every kind of case. From simple assault to DUI’s, possession for sale of controlled substances, meth labs, burglary, robbery, grand theft auto, receiving stolen property, sexual assault, domestic violence, sodomy, child molestation, rape, child abuse/endangerment, sodomy, torture, home invasion robbery, vehicular manslaughter, murder and multiple murder/special circumstances, she has amassed an impressive list of courtroom victories, both historic and renown.
With the knowledge that Attorney Roe is ready and willing to vanquish all comers in trial, and with credentials to prove it, her adversaries have dismissed countless other cases, so as to avoid befalling such an outcome to themselves.
Avvo.com, a private on-line attorney rating service has rated Attorney Roe with a ‘SUPERB – 10” rating, the highest possible rating achievable by an attorney.
In 2013, The National Trial Lawyers named Attorney Roe as one of the Top 100 Trial Lawyers in Criminal Defense in the State of California based on her performance as an exceptional trial lawyer in the practice area of criminal defense law. The National Trial Lawyers Top 100 Lawyers is a premier group of attorneys who practice criminal defense or civil plaintiff law in California.
