Umbrellas are a universal symbol of protection against the harsh elements of nature. We use the umbrella as a metaphor for the shelter and protection offered by Melanie GiaMaria to her clients during life's harshest periods. Melanie GiaMaria Law enables clients to retain their dignity throughout their legal process.
We use the lotus flower as symbol of triumph over negative experiences. The lotus is born at the muddy bottom of a pond. The plant pushes its stalk up through the murky water to the surface. As it leaves the darkness and enters the light, a beautiful flower blooms. In much the same way, Melanie GiaMaria cares for clients in their darkest hours, helping them bloom.
"Melanie represented me during a very difficult custody battle with my son’s father, offering me legal and personal guidance during one of the worst times of my life. She tirelessly advocated for both me and my son, and in her we had a true protector who was behind us all the way and would not back down. She calmed my anxiety and my fears becoming not only my attorney, but a friend when I needed one the most. In the end, all parties came to an agreement that continues to be beneficial to all involved, and my son now has a good relationship with his father. We could not be more appreciative for Melanie’s talent and expertise in helping resolve the situation allowing my son and his father’s relationship to blossom in a positive manner." —A.M.
"I met Ms. GiaMaria in 2007 at a meeting in the Fatherhood Initiative Program and told her my situation. I was trying to get legal assistance with getting my record expunged and she agreed to help me without hesitation. She worked on my case for approximately one and a half years, but because of the complex circumstances related to my case, it came to a halt due to the legislative prohibitions that kept me from receiving my expungement. Melanie told me that she would continue to look into my case and if any changes were to arise that she would definitely be in contact with me. At that point I considered my circumstances to be hopeless. Well six and a half years later, Melanie proved to be a woman of her word because I received a phone call from her informing me that the laws had changed and that I may now be eligible for expungement. So she began the process again and it was a success, giving me the opportunity to start my life over and restoring the hope that I once deemed lost. I am truly indebted to Melanie. She never gave up on me and has helped me accomplish what is nothing short of amazing. To her I am forever grateful. " —Frank Henry
