Peer and Client Reflections on Melanie N. Roe - Criminal Defense Attorney

 

After being screwed over by another Palm Springs attorney and a corrupt judge, Melanie Roe truly came to my rescue. I honestly do not know what I would have done with out her. She is the only attorney in Palm Springs I would hire. Honest and a true professional I would recommend Melanie to anyone including family members.

A True Guardian Angel

I was charged with two counts of child molestation by the government when I was accused of inappropriate touching while at my job one day which was a year before the charges where filed against me. After three and a half years of this nightmare hanging over my head Melanie Roe fought the case for me and paid strict attention to every small detail even planning an appeal for me before the trial began when the government violated my constitutional right to a speedy trial. She stood with me in court even though she had to cancel her vacation plans due to the fact of the government always wanting continuances and the courthouse having a hard time having to find a room to have the trial in. She was very professional and a true defender of my rights in and out of the courtroom. She persuaded the jury that the government failed to prove the false accusations I was criminally charged with and they returned a unanimous verdict of not guilty on both counts. If you are ever accused of a crime or know a loved one that has been accused do not ever go talk to the police even when asked by them. They are not looking out for you or will give you the benefit of the doubt at all. First go talk to an experienced criminal defense attorney, preferably Melanie Roe; and she will fight her hardest to see that you or a loved one are treated fairly by a system that is too often willing to overlook your individual rights for the easiest way to convict and add more meat for the criminal justice system grinder.

Feedback and Comments from those defended by Melanie N. Roe…

MELANIE ROE is a miracle worker I highly recommend her she goes above and beyond for her clients

Melanie Roe is a Top Notch attorney I just got thru with a 4 and a half year long case. They were trying to find me guilty on three violent felonies which if found guilty I would have been spending the rest of my life in prison. I got charged with a sales case years later while fighting this violent case. The DA tried to do everything he could to keep me in custody they gave me a no bail at first. We went back to court in front of the judge to get the hold lifted. The Da argued not to let me out to the judge but when Mrs.Roe was given her chance to speak to the judge on my behalf she was AMAZING!!! It’s like she was a Tiger in the court room that day so focused so fierce and so very professional. She was on point with everything she stated. After the hour long battle between Mrs.Roe and the DA the judge granted my hold be lifted, Mrs.Roe won the battle I was out that night at home with my family. So now I got a sales charge and the 3 violent felonies. Mrs.Roe met with me to discuss the case whenever I felt like I needed to talk to her she was always there for me I┬ánever had 1 bad feeling about Mrs.Roe it was actually quite comforting to know that I had her in my corner, her being so good at what she does and so knowledgeable with the way the law works made me feel at ease. So now they were trying to give 25 to life on the one case and 7 years on the sales case. Mrs.Roe went the extra mile every time in that court room and so when it came to judgement day and we were ready to go to trial the DA came to us with a deal they knew i could not turn down. My personal opinion is they knew they were up against the best damn attorney this Desert has to offer “Mrs.Roe” and they knew getting in the ring with this Tiger was a lose lose situation for them so of course the only hope that had left was to give me a deal i couldn’t refuse so me being me i took the deal. I turn myself in here shortly and I’ll be home in a year COUNTY TIME so that leaves me eligible for a federal kick. I could not be more happier with the way it all turned out i highly recommend Mrs.Roe. she’s a fighter, she’s professional, she is so knowledgeable, she’s caring and understanding, she goes the extra mile and she’s the best damn attorney I have ever dealt with. etc. etc. I could keep going on and on. I can finally breathe again and get on with my life it felt like my life was in a stand still for over 4 years. I finally feel so relieved if i didn’t have Mrs.Roe I’d probably be doing the rest of my life in prison but bcuz of her expertise in criminal law I’m a free man and able to be out in the real world working hard and providing for my family. I’m forever grateful an so thankful to have met Mrs.Roe. She is a true blessing

Confident Advocate for Justice

Melanie Roe was a confident advocate for justice in my case. She presented a clear direction in my defense and gave me the assurance that we would prevail with the evidence that she had acquired on my behalf. Her calm management of the criminal procedure I was involved with provided me with the assurance that I was receiving experienced and excellent legal counsel. I would highly recommend Melanie Roe to anyone should they need the assistance of a criminal defense attorney. I knew I was innocent; and more importantly, she demonstrated that I was innocent. Thank you, Melanie Roe.

Dynamite Attorney who truly cared about our case.

Attorney Melanie Roe was highly recommended to us as a Defense Atty. Our Son was charged with a violent felony. We found Ms. Roe to be caring and compassionate, while at the same time, an expert in the law. We were truly in awe at what a commanding presence she was in the Court room. She is very professional, thorough, confident and well respected by her colleagues. She truly examined our Sons case and determined the proper strategy. We were more than satisfied with the outcome. We would definitely use her services again.

I can finally move on with my life with no DUI charges on my record what a blessing

After being arrested for a DUI and given a refusal I lost my license for a whole year and knew that I was innocent and I knew I didn’t want this on my record especially because I am going to school for criminal justice and it would just be hard to find a job in this field. Melanie was referred to me by another lawyer in Los Angeles and he said that the Kennedy and Roe firm was the best in Riverside county and I can’t tell you how right that he was. Melanie was very knowledgeable and knew exactly what she was doing and how she was going to do this. Essentially I wanted to take my case to trial because I knew I was innocent and I knew Melanie could prove this, however I knew going to trial was going to take a lot of time out of school and work so Melanie was able to find a better solution and get me a plea bargain that I was very satisfied with. I went from having a Dui refusal to pleading guilty to a dry reckless and she got the DUI erased from my record completely. I had to pay $320 in total in fines and I washed my hands of the whole thing. It really felt great having an attorney with so much knowledge and confidence in herself and in her client. I now have a chance to move on with my life school and put all of this behind me. Thank you so much, Melanie. You and your firm kept your word and fought for me the way you said that you would and that’s a quality you don’t find very often these days.

Peer Reviews…

How other attorneys, whether adversaries or associates, view the professionalism, integrity, knowledge and legal skills of Melanie Roe…

I’ve known Attorney Roe for over 20 years. I have never met an attorney who is more committed to her clients than she is. Not only does she seek the best result possible from a legal standpoint, but she is also concerned with how best to support her clients in avoiding legal trouble in the future. She sees clients as people with problems, not just as cases. I heartily recommend her.

Ross Mitchell

Fellow lawyer in community

I am a local attorney who has practiced law for the past 19 years. I have known Melanie Roe for over a decade. I first met Melanie Roe when she was working for the Public Defender’s Office in Riverside County. Although attorneys employed by the Public Defender’s Office have an extremely busy case load and are generally overworked and underpaid, Melanie Roe would always devote the necessary time in order to properly investigate and prepare her cases. Melanie Roe vigorously represents all of her clients and although some of cases would be resolved by negotiated plea, more often than not – Melanie would litigate a case at trial and receive favorable results. There is no doubt that Melanie Roe is a seasoned defense attorney, always focused on getting the best results for her clients. In my opinion, Melanie Roe is one of the top 10 trial lawyers in Riverside County. Accordingly, I Respectfully endorse Melanie Roe.

I have known Melanie for over 10 years as both a friend and a colleague. She is an extremely competent and experienced criminal defense attorney. She has handled virtually every kind of criminal case and her clients have had the benefit of one of the finest attorneys I know.

Geoffrey Yaryan

Friend

I worked in the same legal community with Melanie for three years in the Coachella Valley, CA (she as a private, and I was a public defender). I must say that Melanie commands respect and attention from both the bench and opposing counsel when she enters the court. She is highly regarded for her intelligence and legal knowledge, and has a natural compassion and sympathy for her clients’ circumstances. You can not go wrong when choosing Mel as your legal representative.
